Another Big Bates Announcement

Yesterday afternoon, Tori and Bobby Smith revealed the gender of their first child, due in November. It's a boy, and they have already chosen a name. (Check the post for more details and a video.)

And if that's not enough excitement for you, the Bates have yet another announcement to share. Someone is engaged! Who do you think it will be? Carlin Bates and Evan Stewart have been courting since August, while Josie Bates and Kelton Balka started their courtship at the beginning of this year.

The news will be broadcast during the series premiere of "Our Wedding Story," which airs tonight at 9pm ET/8pm CT on UP. For those who are unable to tune in, we will share the news on our blog.

  1. What was the first Big Bates announcement? Surely not the gender reveal? That’s nearly an every month occurance.

  7. I see the engagement announcement as nothing more than another stunt by UPTV to get viewers to watch their new show. I just don't think that's right. I know The Bates Family draws great ratings, but they could just schedule the new show for before or after The Bates show. I'll just get the engagement information from this blog. I really like the Bates Family show but I'm not crazy about UPTV as a network. Lots of games.

    1. Totally agree! UPTV is dishonest in getting true ratings for their other shows. I've voiced complaints before. We'll see if this response is made public...

  10. Definitely Josie! They said on the live that she will probably be getting married before Carlin.

  11. I think it's Josie. She just seems more ready to get married than Carlin does. I think both girls will be married soon, though, probably by the end of the year. And then maybe both of them will have babies next year! What fun!

    1. How is it as fast as can be? Josie and Kelton have liked each other for years. Several of the Bates have been in a relationship for over a year before marriage. They have the getting to know you period, the courtship period, and then the engagement.

  15. I thought for sure it was Carlin because the silhouette was her in the ad on TV ! Plus she is older also. When is she done with school ? Also we already know she is moving to Nashville. She will be close to her sister Tori I think.

    1. Carlin may be older but Josie finished school already and she's working. Josie and Kelton have known each other longer too.

  16. I will have to get update here since I no longer get UPTV I do miss their show but it was the only thing I watched on that network and I just couldn't afford to keep it
