Third time’s a charm! Bringing Up Bates star Alyssa Webster is pregnant with her third baby. The reality star recently confirmed to Us Weekly that she and husband John Webster will welcome their daughter in April 2018. And if that wasn’t exciting enough… they’ve already chosen a name!

“Welcoming a child into the world that is your own will never grow old!” the pair explained. “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!”

Alyssa, 23, and John, 27, tied the knot in May 2014 and are already parents to Allie Jane, 2, and 10-month-old Lexi Mae. Fans of the couple are excited about their surprising baby news. “Congrats to them and love the name!” one fan tweeted. Another added, “Congrats John and Alyssa!”

While the news that the happy couple is expecting their third child is unexpected, it’s not entirely shocking that they would want a big family. The Bates family does focus on Gil, Kelly Jo Bates, and their 19 children. Now, we’re not sure if Alyssa and John want that many kids — but, we’re sure the idea of having three little ones isn’t too daunting!

Alyssa previously gushed on Instagram about her beautiful family: “I couldn’t be happier to be living life with you three!” And their happy news comes just after her sister, Tori, announced her engagement to her longtime love, Bobby Smith. So, there’s definitely a lot of congratulations going around in this family!

We can’t wait until next spring so we can meet little Zoey. We know she’ll be the perfect addition to their family and will be just as adorable as her sisters!
