Another Bates Boy

'Tis the season for baby boys! The Bates family is in the midst of a big streak of grandsons. Ryker Bates kicked it off last September, followed by William Paine in October and Miles Balka in February. Weston Smith arrived just a few days ago. In early summer, Lawson and Tiffany Bates are expecting a son, and Katie and Travis Clark are due with a boy this fall. Nathan and Esther Bates are also looking forward to welcoming their second child this fall, and they just announced the gender. It's a boy! Can you believe it? 

This will make 32 grandchildren for Gil and Kelly Bates. Head over to our Birthdays page to total up now many boys and girls they have, and then come back to the comments section to report back.

Announcement at Valentine's Day

The Bates' 2024 I Love You Day party was one for the books. It's always exciting when everyone gathers together, and Kelly's Valentine's Day celebrations are always a blast. This year, the family was extra shocked when two couples (Katie and Travis Clark and Nathan and Esther Bates) announced that they were each expecting their second child. Lawson and Tiffany Bates uploaded a YouTube video of the footage. If you remember, Lawson and Tiffany shared the news of their rainbow baby during the Bates' Christmas party. Maybe there will be another announcement at the Bates' next get together!
