Bringing Up Bates fans have been waiting for an update about Michaela Bates and Brandon Keilen’s family. Fans may recall that the couple has had fertility issues, and they have been hoping to add to their family for years. Unfortunately, they haven’t had a baby yet. Recently, the pair revealed that they are keeping their fertility journey more private and would like to process it on their own for now. So, it doesn’t look like fans will be getting an update for a little while.

In an Instagram story, she wrote, “After much prayer and conversation together we decided to film one of our dr. visits. But afterwards I found that sharing something so personal and painful in such a public way was very difficult for me. After that appointment we decided that we wanted to walk this pathway a little more privately.”

In the meantime, the couple is soaking up some quality time with their many nieces and nephews. There are several new babies in the Bates family, so there’s lots of love to go around. They often share photos of themselves with their family members.

Michaela Bates and Brandon Keilen share family update

On their shared Instagram account, Michaela and Brandon held a Q&A session. It looks like Michaela answered most of the questions as she seems to primarily use their account.

One fan asked, “Do you and Brandon plan on getting any pets?” In response, they wrote, “We live in a rental house right now and pets are not allowed but we hope to have a puppy some day!”

Though this might not have been exactly what fans were hoping to hear from the couple regarding the future of their family, they are happy for them. It’s unclear when exactly Michaela and Brandon will add a puppy or another furry friend to their family, but they will likely share this exciting moment with fans when it does happen. The pair also doesn’t share any details on their plans to move out of their rental home.
