So much to celebrate. Bringing Up Bates stars Erin and Chad Paine welcomed their third child, a girl, at 4:12 a.m. on Friday, March 30, Us Weekly exclusively confirms. Everly Hope weighed in at 5 pounds, four ounces and measured 18 inches at birth. The newborn joins brother Carson, 2, and sister Brooklyn Elise, 17 months.
“This morning, we met our Everly Hope for the first time. The thrill and joy of holding another precious baby never grows old,” Chad, 30, and Erin, 26, said in a joint statement to Us Weekly. “She has already been smothered with love and kisses, and our hearts are so thankful to God for a healthy little baby girl. Seeing Carson and Brooklyn’s faces light up at the sight of their sister brought us to tears. It feels like we are experiencing a little bit of heaven on earth right now.”
Erin can take stroller walks with her sister Alyssa Bates! The fellow UPtv personality and her husband, John Webster, are also now a family of five. Their little girl Zoey Joy Webster made her debut on Thursday, March 28, weighing in at 6 pounds and measuring 19 inches long. “We’re so happy for Zooey’s safe arrival,” Alyssa, 23, and John, 29, tell Us Weekly exclusively.
Us Weekly exclusively broke the news in November that the parents of Allie Jane, 2, and Lexi Mae, 14 months, were expecting a new addition. “Three girls is going to be crazy and emotional but we can’t wait to welcome little Zooey Joy into our lives,” the couple told Us at the time.
Erin and Alyssa are two of 19 children born to Gil and Kelly Jo Bates. The family is friendly with the Duggar family and appeared on the show 19 Kids and Counting.
