Congratulations are in order for Alyssa Bates Webster and her husband, John Webster! The Bringing Up Bates star gave birth to the couple's third child — a baby girl named Zoey Joy. The reality stars wed in 2014 and are currently parents to daughters Allie Jane and Lexi Mae. According to Instagram, little Zoey was born on Wednesday, March 28, at 4:22 a.m. and weighed in at 6 pounds, 19 inches.

Alyssa and John first announced her pregnancy back in November during an interview with Us Weekly. "Welcoming a child into the world that is your own will never grow old!" they told the publication. "Three girls is going to be crazy and emotional but we can’t wait to welcome little Zoey Joy into our lives. All of our girls are truly gifts of God to our home!"

The Bates family is giving the Duggars a run for their money — as they also boast 19 kids (nine boys and 10 girls) and a reality TV series. "There are similarities between the families, but you really can’t compare them to each other just as you can’t compare any two other families," the show's executive producer Matthew Hightower said back in 2016. "They’re very different from each other in many, many ways, and I think that’s all that needs to be said about this."

It's been an exciting time for the Bates family, especially when it comes to new additions. Back in September, Alyssa's sister Tori Bates got engaged to her longtime love, Bobby Smith, and tied the knot in December. Bringing Up Bates airs on UPTV and focuses on the lives of Gil, Kelly Jo, their kids, and grandkids — from courting to other life milestones in their home of East Tennessee. Congrats again to the growing family!
