So the other TV family with 19 kids also has a family member expecting a baby.
This January 1, The Bates family
, consisting of dad Gil, mom Kelly Jo and their 19 children, ages 2 to 25, got their own reality TV show on UPTV
after appearing on several episodes of TLC
‘s 19 and Counting.
The show, Bringing Up Bates
, premiered this January 1 and featured a storyline where the oldest daughter Erin, and her husband, Chad Paine
, discovered that they miscarried their first child. However, since that airing, the couple has gong on to conceive again.
I’m so glad and relieved that last night’s episode has finally aired! Chad and I have been waiting to share our big news with the rest of the world for quite some time now. The news is true! Chad and I are having a baby! To say that we are thrilled would be such an understatement. 😉 We can hardly contain our excitement as we prepare to be parents. As many of you know, starting a family.
As we reported before, over at The Duggars
household, their eldest daughter Jill announced
last October that she and her husband Derrick Dillard
are expecting their first child. This will be the 4th of 5 grandchildren in the family because Josh Duggar
and his wife Anna have 3 kids and announced this past December that they are expecting their fourth
child. Jessa Duggar just got engaged
to her beau Ben Seewald l
It looks in the production of children competition, the Duggars are pulling ahead! ha!
