‘Bringing Up Bates’ Babies: Carson, Allie And Bradley Together As Season 2 Set To Begin
Season 2 of Bringing Up Bates premieres Thursday night on UP TV and it should be a fantastic season. Viewers love the family of Gil and Kelly Jo Bates and adore seeing their 19 kids and expanding families. Though it’ll take a bit for it to all play out on-screen, there have been several new additions to the family in the past year and fans won’t want to miss the photo recently shared online highlighting the newest family members.
Oldest son Zach Bates and his wife Whitney welcomed baby Bradley last fall. As Bringing Up Bates viewers saw in Season 1, both John and Alyssa Webster along with Chad and Erin Paine were expecting babies this spring as well. Over the past couple of months, both babies have joined the family.
Alyssa and John welcomed baby Allie in April while Erin and Chad welcomed Carson in May. Though the Websters live in Florida near his family, away from the rest of the Bates family, it looks like everybody recently got together for some family bonding time. Whitney shared a photo of the three little cousins together and fans found it to be adorable.
The photo showed Erin, Alyssa and Whitney standing together with strollers holding Carson, Allie and Bradley in front of them. While Carson came a bit early, he seems to be doing really well. All three new mamas have been posting updates on their social media pages regularly and they clearly all have fully embraced and love motherhood.
As Zap2It shares, Season 2 of Bringing Up Bates will consist of 14 episodes. Viewers will get to follow Erin and Chad as they move through this pregnancy and welcome Carson, and they’ll get to see Allie’s birth as well. Those who follow the family via social media also know that Michael and Brandon recently got engaged and they are planning an August wedding, and the planning will be featured this season too.
In addition to the family changes ahead this season, viewers will see a family trip to the lake, the Bates “I Love You Day” celebration and a joint birthday party for Ellie and Addee. The Season 2 finale will feature a trip to Dolly Parton’s Dollywood where the Bates family will all be singing together.
Fans are thrilled that Gil, Kelly Jo and their 19 kids were given the opportunity to do a second season of the show and the first season was definitely a big hit for UP TV. Some wonder if the ratings may be even better in this show return given the controversy and lack of new episodes at the moment over on TLC with 19 Kids and Counting.
The Bates and Duggar families are close friends and a lot of fans follow both families and shows. While the Bates family hasn’t said much about the controversy regarding Josh Duggar and the 19 Kids issues, they have shared that they’re praying for the Duggars.
The fun for the Bates family, and the fans, kicks back into gear again on Thursday, June 4 as Season 2 of Bringing Up Bates premieres and the family embraces the changes ahead.
