What are the Bringing Up Bates stars doing there?

On Reddit, fans are further discussing this sighting of Gil and Kelly Jo Bates. A few fans were quick to point out that Kelly Jo has a couple of baby sleepers in her shopping cart. Bringing Up Bates fans think it’s very obvious that she’s in town for the birth of her newest grandchild.

Nathan and Esther Bates, who live in Arkansas, are currently expecting their first baby, a girl named Kenna Joy. She’s due to arrive on Tuesday, October 18.

One fan took a closer look at what Kelly Jo Bates was buying and came to the conclusion that they are celebrating Kenna’s birth. The fan wrote, “Yup the food looks like a small celebratory meal to me. Steaks, caesar salad, ice cream cones. Maybe the welcome home meal for Esther and Nathan and the limited family that is there for Kenna’s arrival.”

Another fan chimed in, “She’s probably buying things to make a meal for Nathan and Esther. It looks like she also bought the baby a new outfit.”

We’ll have to wait and see if this is actually why Gil, Kelly Jo, and Trace are in Arkansas, but it would make a lot of sense.
