While most of the world already knows the Duggar family — thanks to the success of their many reality shows — people may not realized that they’re not the only reality TV family with a plethora of kids!
The Duggars’ family friends, the Bates family, also has 19 kids and their own reality show, Bringing Up Bates, which returns tonight!
The show follows parents Gil and Kelly Jo and their extensive brood, which includes their 19 children (did we mention there are no twins in this crew?) and their six children. Tonight’s season premiere promises to be especially good — as they are celebrating new relationships and new babies in tonight’s very exciting season 7 premiere!
Welcome into the family sweet Lexi Mae! What a blessing you already are as our hearts feel so full of joy and love! Praying that God will use you mightily to share His love as you grow up! You are a treasure, and we thank the Lord for your precious life! (Use link in bio for more pics) #LexiMaeWebster #UPtv
The new season teases that love is in the air for all members of the Bates family — as Carlin continues to fall for her new beau Evan with many hoping it’ll end in a courtship, while we see Tori and her boyfriend Bobby get even more serious — with fans keeping their fingers crossed that their courtship will lead to an eventual engagement. UPTV also hints that there’s a wedding coming up — but won’t reveal who!
Be sure to check out Bringing Up Bates tonight at 9 p.m. on UPTV — and get to know all the kids in the gallery below!
