Welcome Baby Kenna


She's here! Nathan and Esther Bates welcomed Kenna Joy Bates on October 17th. Gil and Kelly and a few other Bates family members, including Lawson and Tiffany, have already traveled to Northwest Arkansas to meet the new addition.

  1. Oh how I miss this televised show! It was wholesome, and lovely and real! It just isn't the same on the computer. Blessings to ALL the Bates family, in-laws, children, and grandchildren! I miss seeing you all!

    2. Of course the TV show came across as wholesome. It was what fans wanted to see and what producers wanted to produce. It whitewashed anything controversial. When the family members didn't have a network editing their video footage or producers telling them what to do, a different kind of show emerged. They were removed from TV, remember?

    4. So do I! It was a refreshing beacon of hope that families can still survive heartily in the current world, AND SHOWED US HOW! (HEART EMOJI)

    5. They are wholesome, they did nothing wrong but no one is perfectly & they shouldn’t have been removed from tv!

  7. Good news. So happy for them. I didn't know they were living near the Duggars in Arkansas.

    1. They have lived there I believe since getting married last year. I think Nathan and the Duggar boys who have pilot's licenses' work together flying for missions trips and other things.

    2. I think Nathan and John work together doing something. I'm not sure exactly what they do to earn a living though.

    1. Good luck. I tried to get ahold of up faith and family and they ignore people. Wish bates would start their own show or get ahold if TLC. I've asked TLC to pick up the show, they don't respond either.

  14. Congratulations Nathan and Esther on the birth of your first child and daughter Kenna Joy!๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’• Absolutely love how they used Nathan's actual first name "Kenneth" and made it feminine.๐Ÿ˜ Had a old family friend who did the same with their eldest child and only daughter and named her Kenna for her dad's name Ken (but he went by Kenny). Saw Lawson and Tiffany's new vlog and she looked so cute and sweet.๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅบ Hope Lawson and Tiffany have a baby soon enough so the Bates grandkid's can be evened to 25.

  16. Congratulations Nathan & Esther on your baby Kenna Joy Bates ❣️May God bless you guys and the family. My parents and I really do miss all the Bates family members and we really would love ๐Ÿ’• for the family to be back on Cable TV with a new show and long new seasons & yes even the Duggar family members with a new show and long new seasons also back on Cable TV hopefully in 2024 for both shows with both families with spin offs. We would really love ๐Ÿ’• for that to happen that would make our year very happy ๐Ÿ˜Š & exciting news for us. Natasha b

    1. I enjoyed watching the new Duggar reality show last year, especially that final episode last December.

    2. These families are NOT coming back to TV. They have moved on and so should you.

    3. The only way these families are coming back to TV is when something they do makes the news. So far, that hasn't been for good or wholesome things.

  17. Please Natasha, These families need to learn to live quiet lives. They will not be back on TV let them go quietly and let them move on. Thankful they share on facebook and other places and enjoy them there. God Bless , Shelia

    1. I agree. I'm not pining for the return of these shows as it turned out they didn't portray these families in a very accurate manner.
