Little Bates Fam Thanksgiving 2017

Zach and Whitney were able to see lots of loved ones over the Thanksgiving holiday. Per Bates family tradition, they traveled down to Honea Path, South Carolina, to visit Gil's extended family, and they also spent time with Whitney's parents.

  7. They all have great smiles! Hopefully Whitney's real estate career is going well. Maybe they have chosen to have only 2 kids...

  8. Curious to see if this episode was filmed or not...funny how Whit publicly stated she would wear skirts during filming and t the Bates’ house in respect for her in laws beliefs. Obviously Jane Jane doesn’t have the same strict view on no pants, but it does seem to be a double standard for Whitney. Rules will keep changing until finally they all wear pants, whether married or not. Not really a bad thing, except they made their fame BY BEING UBER CONSERVATIVE, and now they are super mainstream.

    1. Found the answer to my own question when I ran across pics from that day. Unless Bradley, Lawson, and the camera guy (in addition to Whitney’s shirt and vest) were all worn two days in a row, it appears Whit changed from pants to a skirt between her family snapshot and filming for tv.

      DOUBLE STANDARD. I think she needs to nail down her belief and then go with it. Same for all the kids. Make up your mind and then do what YOU want. Don’t let Mom and dad and heaven forbid some strict rule from the past keep you on pins and needles with what to wear. It really looks worse to waffle between beliefs and then try to make up some generic excuse as to why it’s now ok.

  9. Are those Whit's adoptive or biological parents? I heard some controversy about her parents and Kelly interfering with Whit's parental arrangement before she married Zach. Any truth to this?

    1. The photo caption states that they are Whitney's parents. It stands to reason that they are the couple who raised her. Whether they are adoptive or biological is beside the point and any so-called controversy should be of no concern to you. That's entirely a private matter.

    2. So agree!! What difference does it make if biological or adoptive. By the way adoptive parents are fully 100% parents. And her name is Whitney not “Whit”.

    3. I don't care whether they are her biological or adoptive parents, but it is a rather curious situation since the parents that were in her wedding are different than the parents shown in these pictures. Whatever her situation, beautiful pictures!

    1. They are a handsome couple & apparently both are in great shape.
      They're blessed with two lovely children and perhaps content with a small family.
      I wish them great success in their lives.
