One Bringing Up Bates fan assumed that the couple does not believe in using contraception. In response, Katie said, “This one is actually not true. We did use birth control for a little bit before we had Hailey.” Travis admitted that it was just for a short time.

She confirmed again, “But yes, we do use birth control.”

Also in the video, they talked about whether they got pregnant sooner than they thought they would. The couple is currently expecting their first baby, Hailey James, who’s due to arrive in March. Travis and Katie revealed that they got pregnant faster than they expected to, based on what the doctor said. But they were trying at that time.

On RedditBringing Up Batefans are discussing this bombshell confession from Katie. Since Katie and Travis didn’t specify what type of birth control they used, fans are curious.

One fan pointed out:

“They implied hormonal based on saying they got pregnant faster than their doctor told them they would once they started trying.”

Of course, without official confirmation from Katie and Travis, there’s no way to know for sure. Many fans are shocked that Katie and Travis addressed this. One fan said, “Wow! I give them props for admitting to birth control.”

Some think this is a possibility, while others are sure they just used cycle tracking or another non-hormonal method.
