Wishing the Bates dad a very happy birthday! At age 52, he has 19 children and five (soon to be six, when Lexi Mae Webster makes her grand debut) grandchildren.
Did you know that Gil and Kelly Bates only planned to have one or two children? They also planned to wait about five years after marriage. But if you remember our birthday post from two days ago, their oldest son, Zach Bates, was born on December 30, 1988, only 11 days after Gil and Kelly's first wedding anniversary.
