Tori Bates is pregnant! The Bringing Up Bates star is expecting her first child with her husband, Bobby Smith, multiple sources have confirmed.
Tori is due in the fall. The 22-year-old reality star has experienced “severe” morning sickness, but according to a Bates family insider, she is looking forward to finding out the gender of the unborn baby; a boy or a girl.
Tori, who is the seventh child and fourth daughter of actors Gil Bates and Kelly Jo Bates, said,
We’re having a baby! We are thrilled that God has blessed us with this amazing privilege, and we cannot wait to meet our precious little gift from Him. We’re on the edge of our seats to see whether it’s a boy or a girl!
The couple was first introduced by a mutual friend in 2015 and eventually started dating in November 2016 and later getting engaged the following September at Wiseman’s View in North Carolina.
They got married on 16 December 2017 at the Calvary Baptist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee and the wedding ceremony was attended by their family, friends and the Duggar family.
The two documented their wedding for the Bates family’s UPtv reality series' April 26 episode. Tori was all smiling throughout her vows, which was officiated by her father Gil.
Her pregnancy announcement will air on UPtv's the Bringing Up Bates Mother’s Day Special Thursday, May 10, at 9 p.m. ET.
