Alyssa Bates and John Webster told her family about their pregnancy in the series premiere of Bringing Up Bates, and now, OKMagazine.com has another exciting (and exclusive) reveal—the gender and name of the couple’s first baby!
Alyssa and John told OKMagazine.com exclusively that they just registered today at Target and Babies "R" Us—and they'll be registering for a lot of pink because they're having a girl! Alyssa is currently about 28 weeks along in her pregnancy and due April 10th.
As for the little gal’s name? The parents-to-be plan on naming their daughter Allie Jane Webster. Allie will join big cousin Bradley, Alyssa’s brother Zach’s first child, as well as 18 (!!!) aunts and uncles.
As we saw thus far on season 1 of Bringing Up Bates, Alyssa and John live in Florida, far away from the rest of the Bates family in Tennessee. But distance won't stop these guys from having their own big family. Alyssa said on last week’s episode that she’s open to having about ten children!
As for Alyssa's sister, Erin? In next week's episode, it looks that she and husband Chad are headed back to the doctor who's helping them figure out what caused her miscarriage. Could another Bates have some good news to share, too?!
Tune into Bringing Up Bates next Thursday, January 22 at 9pm on UP to find out! What do you think of the name Alyssa and John chose for their baby? Are you excited that it's a girl? Tweet us @OKMagazine.
