Erin and Chad will welcome baby girl Everly Hope in April 2018. She joins big brother Charles Stephen "Carson" Paine IV (born May 14, 2015) and big sister Brooklyn Elise Paine (born August 6, 2016).
"We are overjoyed to be adding baby Everly Hope to our family this April," gushed Erin and Chad. "She is already loved and adored so much. Our hands are full with two little ones-the giggles, slobbery kisses, and yes, the diapers! We know it will be quite an adventure, and we are definitely anticipating her arrival. We are grateful, so very grateful." On how they chose the name Everly Hope, Erin shared: "I found Everly in the baby name book and fell in love with it. Chad has always loved the name Hope, so he picked the middle name."
Erin and Chad couldn't wait to share the news with their "Bringing Up Bates" fans, but the most excited one maybe little Carson! You can watch this adorable video for UPtv.com where Carson talks about his new baby sister here http://uptv.com/erinandchadnews/

Over the years, audiences have been given an intimate look at the lives of the outspoken Christian family through their reality show.
The Bates family frequently discuss their faith and how it drives all they do. They summarize their beliefs and motive for appearing in a reality show on their blog: "Whether your family is big, or small, or none at all-every life is a life that can count for Christ... Knowing that our significance in life is not about family size, popularity, financial status, ability, or appearance, but rather, our significance is in Christ who loves us and died for us! May we each endeavor to serve Him with our whole heart."
