Bringing Up Bates stars Lydia and Trace Bates have welcomed their baby boy to the world! The couple shared the exciting update with fans and dropped a few details about their new addition. Keep reading to find out more about the induction and see what they’ve shared about Baby Ryker so far.

Why was Lydia induced early?

As we reported, Lydia and Trace updated fans throughout her pregnancy and shared about the baby’s growth. Unfortunately, he was not growing as much as he should have been. He was healthy and growing some, but the doctors felt it would be best for him to be delivered early. According to Lydia, there’s a “high chance” of the placenta disintegrating prior to 40 weeks.

So, Lydia was induced at 38 weeks on the dot. She and Trace went to the hospital at midnight very early on Tuesday, September 12.
