3-9: Boys vs. Girls

Kelly Bates and Everly Paine

2019 is shaping up to be the year of baby girls, for both the Bates and their close friends the Duggars. In the Duggar family, Jessa delivered Ivy in May, and Anna, Lauren, and Kendra are all due with baby girls in November. In the Bates clan, Josie had Willow last month, and Erin and Whitney are expecting baby girls in December and November.

By the end of the year, Gil and Kelly Bates will have 12 grandchildren--nine girls and only three boys. The girls are Allie Webster, Kaci Bates, Brooklyn Paine, Lexi Webster, Zoey Webster, Everly Paine, Willow Balka, Khloe Eileen Bates, and Holland Grace Paine, and the boys are Bradley Bates, Carson Paine, and Kade Smith.

The Duggars are slightly more boy heavy, but not by much. They have nine grandsons, seven granddaughters, and one still to be revealed (John and Abbie's child).

  8. Look at that big smile on Kelly Jo's face. We may be thinking "9 girls + 3 boys." But she is surely thinking "I'm going to have 12 grandbabies to love on this Christmas!"

  13. Bless you all. It is so wonderful to see in the age we now live, modesty, purity, humility and integrity taught generation to generation.

  18. Really wish we could watch this family in the UK. We did initially get Bringing up Bates on TLC or Home & Health (not sure which as it’s a while ago). However we only ever got one series & we can no longer watch them. They are such an inspirational family & even more so than the Duggar’s in some ways. All the adult children are making their own way in the world, have proper independent jobs & even the young women work. Gill & Kelly are a lovely couple, & I would love to be able to follow their lives on their show in the same way we are able to watch the young Duggars.
