There’s another Bates baby on a way!
Bringing Up Bates stars Erin and Chad Paine are awaiting their third child, a girl, they endorse to PEOPLE exclusively.
Erin, 26, is due in Apr 2018, and a integrate have already selected a name for their small one: Everly Hope.
“We are vivacious to be adding baby Everly Hope to a family this April,” Erin tells PEOPLE. “She is already desired and precious so much. Our hands are full with dual small ones-the giggles, slobbery kisses, and yes, a diapers! We know it will be utterly an adventure, and we are really expecting her arrival. We are grateful, so really grateful.”
The Paines pronounced they stumbled on a name “Everly” in a baby book and “fell in adore with it.
“Chad has always desired a name ‘Hope,’ so he picked a center name,” Erin says.
Baby Everly will join their son Carson, 2, and daughter Brooklyn, 14 months.
“I consider we am many vehement about saying a siblings together. Carson and Brooklyn have such a special bond with any other, and we know it will customarily grow stronger when Everly comes,” Erin says.
“Carson has been a best large hermit to small Brooklyn, and of course, there are lots of dolls in a house, so he is customarily rocking one to nap or feeding it a bottle,” she adds. “When we told him we was going to have a baby soon, his face only totally illuminated up, and we consider each singular day given he has told me how he can’t wait to ‘hold a baby, and lick a baby, and cuddle a baby!’ It’s a hottest subject of review around a house! Brooklyn is only 1, so we don’t consider she understands what is function yet, though she is really peaceful and honeyed with babies, so I’m assured she will only adore her to pieces.”
The second-eldest of Gil and Kelly Jo Bates’ 19 children, Erin married Chad, 30, in Nov 2013.
The highway to parenthood was rough for a Paines, who went by several miscarriages due to Erin’s blood-clotting emanate before Carson came along.

“I consider we will always have a certain turn of fear during pregnancy, given we have had miscarriages in a past, though we know we have a good alloy who reassures me we are doing all to keep baby and mom protected and healthy by this,” Erin says. “I am so beholden for a adore and support from Chad as well. I’ve been pampered.”
In July, Brooklyn was hospitalized for puncture medicine on her finger, and Erin says her daughter has “recovered well.”
“Most people would never even notice a scar,” she says. “I am so grateful for a smashing group during Children’s Hospital who gave her glorious care, and so grateful God answered a prayers.”
