For the Stewart family, the deuces are wild. Carlin Bates and her husband Evan Stewart have announced they’re expecting baby number 2, coming in ’22. The big announcement comes just days after Carlin’s sister, Erin Bates Paine, revealed she is pregnant with her fifth child.

Carlin and Evan shared the following with E!:

“Stewart Baby #2 is coming in 2022! Let the baby shopping adventures, food cravings, morning (sometimes all day) sickness, and midnight snacks begin! Every single part of the baby journey is worth it! Our daily lives are pretty full with Evan’s electrician work and school, filming our Stew Crew YouTube channel, and being a co-owner of Bates Sisters Boutique, but being parents is by far the best (and absolutely the most rewarding) part of our story! Layla bug is the joy of our lives! Seeing her big smiles and the way she loves on her daddy when he comes home from work is the highlight of our day. She’s also obsessed with her new baby cousins, so we can’t wait to see the excitement on her face when we bring home a new baby brother or sister. Children are definitely a gift from God, and we are so thankful for our little bundles. We never want to take any moment of the life God has blessed us with for granted. Our new addition to the crew is honestly more exciting than we can truly express in words. We can’t imagine being parents to two kids two and under, yet we have prayed for this moment and are extremely thankful to the Lord for this opportunity. Thank you all for your love, support, encouragement, and prayers. You are such a special part of our lives!! Love you guys!”
