If you’re a fan of these families, you may know that some of their kids are friends. Both families have 19 children and share many of the same beliefs.
Most of the Bates family lives in Tennessee. However, Nathan Bates and his wife, Esther, live in Arkansas. That’s also where most of the Duggars live, so Esther has made friends with Joy-Anna Forsyth, Abbie (John-David’s wife), and Katey (Jedidiah’s wife).
On social media, the ladies have documented a few of their special get-togethers for fans to see. They held a Galentine’s Day party back in February. Then, a few of them went berry-picking this summer. Now, they’re enjoying more quality time together.
