Bringing Up Bates: Tori’s First Born Kade Is Now 16 Years Old
Tori and Bobby gave birth to their firstborn in November 2018. And the boy is named Robert Ellis, also known as Kade. Moreover, the boy is now 16 years old. So, the little boys are very close in age. Precisely, that’s why fans are excited to see the two brothers grow up together. Unfortunately, both parents are not very active on social media.
However, the couple was also affected by the Coronavirus. Hospitals are limiting the number of people allowed in a hospital room. But Bobby was lucky enough to be able to be in the place with Tori. Although they weren’t able to have any other visitors. The Bate family FaceTimed Bobby and Tori, and Kade too saw his little baby brother. Tori told the press, “Kade is blowing him all the kisses he can through FaceTime.” In addition to that, Bobby and Tori are eager to get back home so they can settle in as a family of four.
