Bates Celebrate 29 Years

Happy 29th wedding anniversary to Gil and Kelly Bates! In less than 30 years of marriage, the Bates have welcomed 19 children, five (soon to be six) grandchildren, and four in-laws into their brood. When Lexi Mae arrives in January, the clean will reach 31 members.

But more important than the size of their family is their incredible love for each other, God, and the people in their lives. Happy anniversary, Gil and Kelly!

Check out the video clip below of a scene that took place while Gil, Kelly, and Michael were visiting with Brandon and his parents in Chicago just weeks before Michael and Brandon's engagement. It's pretty hilarious!
