Bates #5 Turns 28

Happy 28th birthday to Nathan Bates! His full name is Kenneth Nathaniel Bates, which is fun fact that some of you might not know. He and Esther Keyes are looking forward to their wedding on October 22nd and just had a beautiful wedding shower at the Bates' church this Friday. They also picked out their wedding bands. Nathan recently returned from Haiti with MEDIC Corps and is now responding to Hurricane Ida in Louisiana.

  12. I can picture Nathan flying in on a helicopter from the latest rescue, on his wedding day, repelling down as Esther is walking down the aisle. Lol. He seems like a cool guy

  13. Why is the wedding location a secret?

    1. Why not? I don't think we're invited.

    2. Why the sarcasm? Since it is one of the guys being married, I think it would be interesting to see them married in her hometown and in her church. I don’t understand how asking about the location is such a big deal or why they haven’t said where.

    3. I don't think it's necessary for them to tell us ahead of time.

  15. MO- Can you imagine the girls standing so close to their "boyfriend" or " courting" for a picture before marriage? Different rules for the men. Happy Birthday just the same.. They look really happy- cute couple. :o)

  16. What does Esther do for a living? Will she have to give this up after marrying? If so, why?

    1. Why is it important what Esther does for a living? Perhaps her life was her own before she became part of the Bates tv family. I say....happy birthday to Nathan and congrats to both!

    2. Since Nathan is not frequently on the show, we cannot assume that he receives a grand sum of money for his share. Therefore, it is likely that he and his wife will need to work to support themselves (as do the others). It isn't rude to ask what they do for a living. No one is asking what their income is, just what they do.

  17. This question was asked out of curiosity as to what she has been doing before meeting Nathan. Nothing wrong with asking. We still would like to know what she has been educated/trained to do work wise.

  18. The girls hugged just as much before marriage. It is the Duggars that forbid hugging.
