Big Bates Announcement

In a family with 19 children, big announcements are not all that uncommon, but they are always exciting. Late next week, the clan is going to reveal some Bates-sized news, so stay tuned!

  2. It has to be about tori baby gender reveal or one of the girls are engaged

  3. I really hope that Michaela is finally expecting a baby. But it could also be that Whitney is having another baby (would explain why they did the vow renewal 6 months before the actual 5 year anniversary, if she's due around that time). Or either Josie/Kelton or Carlin/Evan (or both!) are engaged.

  5. Carlin is engaged or Josie is engaged. Tori is already pregnant so that's out.

  9. Either someone is pregnant or getting engaged. I tend to go for Carlin and Evan are engaged but I do hope it’s Michaela & Brandon are expecting.... we will find out soon 😊

  10. Where will it be announced??

    ReplyDelete
  11. Let's see: it's either 'get to know you', courting, engagement, marriage OR baby. There isn't much variation with these families, is there?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Alyssa, Tori, Whitney, Erin are all pregnant, due on the same day, all with triplets. Just my guessπŸ˜‰

    ReplyDelete
  13. Michel is having twins or Josie and Carlin get a double wedding.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The obvious choices are:
    Tori’s pregnant
    Josie’s engaged
    Carlin’s engaged

    The truly biggest Bates announcement would be:
    Michaela is pregnant❤️
    Lawson is courting
    Tori got a teaching position in a public school
    Josie got a job in a salon

    1. Josie already has a job in a salon. She has been working there for months.

      Tori is pregnant. They announced that a few weeks ago.

    2. It's your lucky day!
      A Truly Big Bates Announcement: Josie has a job in a real salon. She's fully licensed and working for months.

      Delete
    3. Actually, (1) We already know Tori is pregnant, that was the last "Big Bates Announcement" and (2) Josie already has a job in a salon. So those are out. Another possibility is a baby gender reveal by Tori and Bobby but I think it's still a tad early for that.

      Delete
    4. I hope it is either a pregnancy for Michaela or Tori getting a teaching job.

      Delete
    5. Tori is pregnant and Josie does have a job in a salon. Otherwise, the rest is fair game!

      Delete
    6. I think this announcement will be the gender of Tori’s baby. They were filming her gender reveal party over the weekend.

    7. I was there! We probably know each other :)

      Delete
    8. I was there too. Do happy for the little boy.

  15. No way!! Cant wait

    ReplyDelete
  16. It's probably that Carlin and Evan are engaged and will be married by the end of summer.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh I love Bates sized news! I am curious as to if someone got engaged, Someone is courting, or if there is another baby on the way!

    1. A baby would have to be Zach & Whitney or Michael and Brandon. Tori's already pregnant, Alyssa and Erin both just had babies.

    1. Ugh. I can't stand the word preggo.

      Delete
    2. I can't stand the phrase baby bump. It is a baby and not a bump. So childish sounding and I am in my early 20s, the age group that says bump!

      Delete
    3. Anonymous at 1:30pm same, poor baby keeps getting called a bump

      Delete
  19. I hope the news is that Michaela is pregnant or preparing to adopt. She is going to make an awesome mother.

  20. Time 8:58PM
    Can't wait for that.

    1. Me eitherrrr. Im on the edge of my seat.

  21. I wonder if it will be another pregnancy? Or perhaps it will be another courtship?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Likely an engagement announcement from Carlin or even Josie but my heart TRULY prays and hopes that it's some baby news from Michael and Brandon. I would (literally) cry tears of joy to hear they're welcoming a little one into their lives! Infertility is SO hard and I know from personal experience that the mixture of emotions... being grateful to be an aunt and loving your nieces and nephews while longing for your own children... is so conflicting!

    1. Yes it is! Real bittersweet a lot.

  23. i hope its something like hour long shows & more specials! cant get enough of this family!

    1. Same this is my favorite show

      Delete
    2. It remains a decent show because the material is fairly fresh and revelent, and not of ton of flashbacks. Adding more time could hurt the dynamic that works well.

      Better to want more than bored 😐

  24. I'm guessing Josie or Carlin's engaged. But I really hope Micheal is pregnant.. I know her and her husband have been trying for couple years and still nothing and they would be so happy.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Maybe Carlin's engaged! Or Josie

    ReplyDelete
  26. I hope for Michael that she pregnant but I'm guessing an engagement or preganacy by Zach & his wife.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Can’t wait! I bet it’s the gender of Tori and Bobby’s baby!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don’t think it’s a pregnancy announcement (but it could be baby Smith’s gender). I think it’s too early for a engagement. So my prediction is that someone’s courting.

    1. Actually if Evan and Carlin get engaged after a 10 month courtship, this would be pretty consistent with prior courtships the Bates have had. I'm pretty sure the only one that lasted more than a year was Michaela and Brandon, and in their case there was no "dating in everything but name" pre-courtship period like the younger Bates have had.

      And while Josie and Kelton have only been officially courting for 6 months they have known each other for 3 years, so I wouldn't be surprised to hear them announce an engagement either.

  29. I hope that Michaela is pregnant! But I'm guessing that Josie is engaged. I just have a feeling that she's going to get married before Carlin.

    1. I have that same feeling. Josie and Kelton are both done with school and working. They've known each other longer than Carlin & Evan too so it's not surprising that they might move faster.

      Delete
  30. Love this family. Can't wait for the big news!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think it is the gender reveal of Tori and Bobby's baby. I would love it to be that Michael is pregnant.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Carlin and Josie are engaged, Michael and Whitney are pregnant.

    ReplyDelete
  33. A big announcement is always an engagement or new pregnancy. The bates date for a while before courtship so I don't think it's a new courtship. Gender reveals are not considered an announcement.
    So here are my guesses in order of probability:

    1. Josie is engaged
    2. Carlin is engaged
    3. Whitney is expecting
    4. Michael is adopting or expecting

    None of those would come as a big surprise except for the last one.

  34. Ellie’s reference to Bates sized news makes me think it could be something bigger than just a gender reveal or engagement. Maybe both Carlin and Josie are engaged, maybe Tori is having twins, maybe Lawson scored a recording contract... it would be wonderful if Michael is pregnant or adopting a child. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

    ReplyDelete
  35. My guess is Tori and Bobby's gender reveal.Or maybe it's twins!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I’m hoping one of the boys is courting, or that Michael is expecting - that would be wonderful news!! πŸ’—

    ReplyDelete
  37. I know! Tori is having twins!! Can't wait to hear what it is. Love this family!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would guess that Whitney is expecting which would be why they renewed their vows now. Otherwise she would be 8 months pregnant for their 5 year anniversary.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am always hopeful it's Michael and Brandon are expecting

    ReplyDelete
  40. Evan is in the pic. But Josie isn't......?

    ReplyDelete
  41. When will the news be during the episode? [I hope cuz I don't have facebook.]
