Sure, you may be mourning right now while 19 Kids & Counting is on an indefinite hiatus due to Josh Duggar's molestation scandal. Wait, is it too soon to make that joke?! But the good news is that this summer, another reality show about a family with 19 children will be on—Bringing Up Bates! And season 2, premiering tonight, has a lot going on, from the arrival of Alyssa's baby to Erin's pregnancy and Michaella's courtship and—spoiler alert!—her subsequent engagement.
In the first episode, the family celebrates Valentine's Day, which is referred to as "I Love You Day" in the Bates household, which is a time for all the couples to enjoy a little quality time together. Especially Michael and Brandon!
In this cute preview clip from tonight's premiere, Michael goes with some of her sisters to pick up Brandon at the airport, who was then just her boyfriend, so he can celebrate I Love You Day with the fam. And let's just say that Brandon got a whole lot more than a side hug upon his arrival. "Hold my phone," Michael says to her sister as she runs into Brandon's arms. Ah, young love.
OKMagazine.com exclusively revealed that Michael and Brandon will be getting married in August and their engagement will be chronicled on the new season. Can't wait!
Watch the sweet clip above and tune into the season 2 premiere of Bringing Up Bates tonight at 9pm on UP TV. Are you excited for season 2? Which Bates kid are you most excited to catch up with? Tweet us @OKMagazine.
