With a family of 19 kids, there's always exciting news to share.
In early January, Zach and Whitney Bates announced their second pregnancy. On Valentine's Day, Erin and Chad followed suit, revealing during the family's annual dinner that they, too, would be welcoming baby No. 2.
The surprises kept coming, as Zach and Whitney shared the gender and name of their unborn child. Late last week, Erin and Chad made the same announcement, following with the due date a few days later.
Zack and Whitney's second child, a girl named Kaci Lynn, is due June 25th. Erin and Chad are due to welcome their daughter, Brooklyn Elise, on August 30th, although Erin says she will be induced early.
Expectant mother Erin suffers from a blood clotting disorder and had to take heparin shots twice a day throughout her pregnancy with Carson. This pregnancy will require similar treatments. Although Erin dreads needles, she has said multiple times that her babies are more than worth it.
"While Brooklyn was a surprise, we feel so blessed and so excited that she’s on her way, and we couldn’t be more in love with Carson," Erin told She Knows.
