Bringing Up Bates fans are thrilled to see the news that Alyssa Bates Webster’s baby Allie has arrived. Alyssa and hubby John Webster welcomed Allie Jane over the weekend,a and it looks like everybody is doing well.
OK! shares the news of Allie’s arrival. Gil and Kelly Jo Bates have 19 children, much like close friends Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting. While the Duggar family welcomed Derick and Jill Dillard’s first baby Israel David on April 6, fans of the two reality TV families knew that Alyssa and John’s special delivery likely wouldn’t be far behind. Indeed, Allie came just a few days later.
This is the Bates family’s second grandchild, with Zach and wife Whitney having welcomed Bradley last October. Another grandbaby is already on the way, with Erin and Chad Paine expecting baby Carson in a couple more months.
Alyssa and John shared their excitement over the new addition to their family.
“We are so excited to welcome our healthy, beautiful baby girl Allie Jane into the world. We are ecstatic and grateful to receive this precious gift. We know she will be showered with lots of love from her grandparents and her aunts and uncles.”
Allie Jane’s arrival comes just a couple of days after Alyssa had posted a baby bump photo via Instagram that had Bringing Up Bates fans smiling. This one showed that Webster had hit the 40-week mark and fans knew Allie’s arrival was right around the corner. While fans will learn more soon, it seems that Allie may have made her debut on Saturday, April 11.
While Jill Duggar Dillard went quite a bit overdue and ended up having a delivery that didn’t go entirely according to plan, it seems that Alyssa and John welcomed Allie just a day after her due date. The Bringing Up Bates star has been sharing not only baby bump photos, but nursery photos as well, and it seems that things had been progressing fairly smoothly.
The next Bates baby won’t be coming too far down the road. Erin and Chad Paine’s baby Carson is said to be due June 8, so it’s going to be a busy summer for the family. Not long ago, Erin and Chad shared via Instagram that the baby would be named Charles Stephen Paine IV, though they will call him Carson.
While many of the Bates family members share great updates via social media, fans can look forward to more being revealed on television screens soon as well. Bringing Up Bates will be back for Season 2, and it may begin as early as June. Congratulations to Alyssa and John Webster on baby Allie Jane’s arrival, and fans can’t wait to hear and see more.
