Lawson Bates Is the Hottest Bates Kid Hands Down, and We Have the Receipts

Look, if you need any reason to keep tuning into Bringing Up Bates, objectively hot Lawson Bates and his baby-filled Instagram make a good argument. Some of you may only know him from those rumors he's courting family friend Jana Duggar. Some of you may be vouching for Nathan being the cute one. Some of you are horribly wrong about that part.

To begin with, Lawson is undeniably fit AF. "A few years back we were shooting for an episode of Bringing Up Bates at our ranch, trying out professional trick riding and I realized how out of shape I was. Ever since I’ve been big into fitness, running, and working out," he said. Uh, yeah, we can tell.

But he's not just some meathead, Lawson balances his life out with a legit singing career! And he's adorably humble about it. "I've been doing a lot of performing over the past year. Mess ups happen," Lawson explained in an episode. "But taking it light and watching people's reactions, making sure they're enjoying themselves, I think is a lot more important than perfection." Awww!

Because, look, we know that the Duggar-Bates lifestyle is strict AF, but if you are pushed to marry another fundie, Jana could do much worse than this 25-year-old smokeshow. And we have plenty of proof.
