Trace's Official Dating Announcement

Trace Bates and Girlfriend Chaney Grace

This evening, InTouch Weekly released an exclusive story about Trace Bates and his girlfriend, Chaney Grace. The two are officially dating! The publication also published an exclusive sneak peek video clip along with the article. Next week on the Bringing Up Bates premiere, you'll watch Trace unexpectedly show up to the family's Valentine's Day celebration with Chaney. The Bates met Chaney's family, Texas residents, at a ski resort in Colorado.

    2. They would be married by february if they were engaged,but they have just started dating,unlike the Duggars the Bates kids don't seem to rush into engagement,probably advised so by Gil as he is very sensible and does'nt want them rushing into marriage because of puppy love.

  2. Congratulations Trace and Chaney! Is this an official courtship, or are they choosing to use the word dating?

  3. I feel bad for anyone who has to make a public declaration in a magazine to announce a girlfriend.

    The extra pressure should not be required especially if its your first relationship.

    Before you send me negative or hate. Please re-read what I wrote. It's not negative to wish for a relationship as a girlfriend or boyfriend to not have this extra pressure. An engagement is totally different than what was shared In Touch.

    Thank you. Please have a nice day.

    2. Totally agree with you. Glad I did not have to publish all my past relationships.

    3. This official announcement was made in an exclusive tabloid article. In order for this to happen, permission had to have been granted and quite likely there was money involved. What is curious to me is that InTouch Weekly got their business at all. It's a typical tabloid, with numerous provacative photos and scantily clad females, certainly not the kind of thing the Bates would want in their own home or have their children viewing.

    4. Her last name is not Grace; interesting the Bates are introducing her in that manner.

      Delete
    5. 7:29, Grace is her middle name. She may not have WANTED her last name posted.

    6. Maybe because it rhymes... Trace and Chaney Grace.

  4. Congratulations...I remember when Trace had very little self esteem..he started to college playing basketball really changed him...Josie changed his hair style and he is a very nice looking young man..I'm so thankful he found his girl friend that he said is pretty and I think so too..I pray yall have a wonder life together. Cant wait to see you on the show.

  6. I read this to be an indication that Chaney and her family do not “do courtships”.
    They go from boyfriend/girlfriend right into engagement then marriage.

    I guess time will tell though.

  7. I thought they didn't like to refer to it as dating. Is this now the same as a courtship?

    ReplyDelete
  8. It’s easy to look at this particular picture of them and see a future bride and groom.

  9. I agree. Who makes an “official dating announcement”? What if they stop liking one another next week?

    Also, I thought they “courted,” and “dating” was bad?

    1. I thought the same thing!!! Who “announced” they’re dating!!!

      Delete
    2. i would think they're announcing it because everyone keeps asking if they're in a relationship! remember, kelly once called their type of courting, 'dating with a purpose'. if they are just now acknowledging it to the public after nearly a year of 'getting to know each other', i dont think they'll call it quits anytime soon. i'm sooo excited for trace to have found someone

    3. They did. To a tabloid.

  10. I always thought the Bates use the term courting. The article says dating???

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm excited that a Bates man is dating. Lawson and Nathan waiting for y'all 1😀

  12. I just pray for these they seem like very good friends and maybe as they get to know each other someday maybe more but everything is in the lords timing they dont seem in a rush to get married.

    1. When they add to the family they have already started by getting married, I'm sure they'll let us know.

  17. Aww,so nice to see young love developing into a solid relationship,I'm guessing Trace asked her to court at her twentyfirst birthday party to give her a birthday to remember,we'll find out soon enough.

  25. Out of all of the magazines to give an exclusive to I am disappointed they chose this tabloid. I refuse to click on their articles because they are so terrible.

  26. Katie and Travis?!

  27. Can we talk about the 3 Bates sister's store? Chaney is 5'7" and those long dresses are even too long on her. I think they would move more product if they would stop buying so many long dresses. The dresses are so long they have to tie knots in them to keep them off the floor; it's got to be awkward, and near impossible to walk in them.
