Kelton Balka Tears Up as Wife Josie Bates Walks Down the Aisle in ‘Bringing Up Bates’ Sneak Peek: Watch (Exclusive)

Happiest day of his life! Kelton Balka could not mask his emotions as he watched Josie Bates walk down the aisle on their wedding day.

“The crowd rises and I look down and see Josie, more beautiful than I’ve ever seen her in my entire life,” Balka, 23, shares in Us Weekly’s exclusive sneak peek of the Thursday, February 14, episode of Bringing Up Bates. “When I saw her walking towards me, I was a mess. I was absolutely bawling my eyes out. I don’t know if I’ve ever cried that hard in my life.”

The 19-year-old bride was flattered by her husband’s emotions, noting, “To have a guy look at you like that and love you so much that they can’t hold off their tears because they’re so excited to marry you, it was the sweetest moment.” 

Us Weekly exclusively confirmed in October 2018 that Bates and Balka tied the knot. The couple revealed on Wednesday, February 13, that they are expecting their first child.
