Congratulations to Greg Bates and Shelley Skidmore. The musically-inclined couple are celebrating their anniversary with the best present of all… parenthood.
Bates revealed that he and his wife of two years would be taking on the role of mom & dad with a sweet post to Instagram.
“Today is our 2nd Anniversary so it’s the perfect day to make the biggest announcement of our lives. WE ARE HAVING A BABY! Blessed doesn’t begin to cover it,” he wrote on Tuesday (5/2) with a snap of their toy poodle Chesney wearing a sign that reads “Big Sister.”
Baby Bates will arrive this October and is the first for the couple.
The couple wed on May 2, 2015 in Skidmore’s hometown of Stanton, Kentucky, among close family and friends. Bates dropped to one knee on Valentine’s Day 2014 when he brought his bride to Shiloh United Methodist Church, the church she grew up in.
Greg Bates is best known for his 2012 song, “Did It For The Girl.” He is currently working as a producer.
