Travis Clark & Katie Bates share their big announcement.
On Thursday evening, Katie and Travis decided it was time to spill the news to Bringing Up Bates fans. They released a new YouTube video. The first part of their video is about their trip to Tennessee to visit the Bates family. Then, when the couple got back home, they sat down and shared the baby’s name with fans.
In their video, Travis and Katie revealed that their baby’s first name is Hailey. They didn’t specify how they are spelling her name, however.
So, fans will have to wait and see which spelling they use. There are a handful of options, including Haley, Hayley, and Hailee. Hailey is the most popular spelling.
They chose James as the middle name. This is Travis’ middle name and is a family name. So, they were going to use it as the middle name whether they had a boy or a girl first.
Prior to finding out the gender, they found a great boy’s name but were never confident about a girl’s name. Then, when Travis shared this name with Katie, she was on board.
