Bringing Up Bates:’ Josie Balka Shares Sneak Peek at Hazel’s Newborn Photos
Bringing Up Bates stars Josie Bates and Kelton Balka have a new little one in their home. Hazel Sloane arrived on June 14. On social media, they announced her birth, writing, “We are so thankful and relieved to have our precious baby girl healthy and here in our arms. God has answered so many of our prayers throughout this journey, and it was such a tender and emotional experience to finally hold her.”
After her birth, the baby had to spend some time in the NICU. Now, she’s doing much better and the family is settling in at home. The Balkas are soaking up all of the special moments with Hazel and her big sister Willow.
Shortly after returning home with their new addition, the family had a photographer over to take pictures of the baby. Josie shared a behind-the-scenes look at Hazel’s newborn photo shoot.

On her Instagram stories, Josie shared a few snaps from the baby’s photo shoot. In one of the pictures, Hazel is swaddled up in a pink blanket. The baby is wearing a white bonnet on the couch, and her mom calls her a “little angel.”
Another post features the photographer taking a picture of Kelton cradling the newborn baby and kissing her hand. Josie writes, “My heart,” and includes heart-eyed and crying emojis. One of the photos is of Josie and Kelton sitting on the couch together cradling the baby girl. They say they are “so in love with this sweet girl.”
As of now, the couple hasn’t shared any of the photos from the photo shoot on their Instagram pages. Once they’re edited by the photographer, Josie and Kelton will probably share some of their favorites with fans. It shouldn’t be too much longer.
The Couple Has Been Sharing Lots Of Other Photos Of Their New Daughter
In the meantime, the couple has been sharing lots of other photos of their new daughter, as well as Willow with the baby. Not only are Josie and Kelton obsessed with their new addition, but fans are also loving all of the new photos of her and posts about her.
