Welp, that didn't take long.

Less than a year after welcoming their first child into the world, Tori Bates and Bobby Smith have confirmed that they're all set to be blessed with another bundle of never-ending joy.

Yup: Bates is pregnant again!

“Our little Kade is almost a year old already, and these months have flown by so quickly," the reality stars just told Us Weekly, expounding in exciting fashion:

"It has been so much fun having him in our lives and we are absolutely thrilled to announce that God has blessed us with another baby boy coming April 2020.

"We are eagerly anticipating the day that we get to welcome to our family little Kolter Grey!”

So there you go: The gender, the due date AND the name. All in one statement.

Tori Bates and Bobby Smith

Tori and Bobby got married in December of 2017.

They announced their first pregnancy just five months later.

“We’re having a baby!” the pair told Us at the time.

“We are thrilled that God has blessed us with this amazing privilege, and we cannot wait to meet our precious little gift from Him. We’re on the edge of our seats to see whether it’s a boy or a girl!”

Boom! Six months later, Robert Ellison -- referred to by his parents as "Kade" -- was born to the  newlyweds.

Tori has long been a star of Bringing Up Bates, an UPtv series that chroncles the exceptionally large family of  Gil and Kelly Jo Bates, two people who wed in 1987 --  and then had 19 children.

Think the Duggars, but with few child molestation scandals.

Many of these cast members are actually pretty tight with members of the Duggar clan; most notably, Joy-Anna Duggar and Carlin Bates are the very best of friends.

Carlin, Whitney Bates and Erin Bates are currently pregnant, while Josie Bates just welcomed a daughter in July.

It's a lot to keep track of, we know.

Said Erin and Chad in June:

“It’s official, baby No. 4 is on the way. We know that life is fixing to get even crazier, but we’re getting ready for more laughs and more love and celebrating every moment along the way!”

Then, late month, Carlin and Evan Stewart announced the following:

“We are beyond thrilled to be expecting our first child. Spending every day with your best friend and building a life together has already exceeded our happiest dreams.

"We are so happy at the thought of parenting together. Three at the table sounds perfect! God is so good.”

Congratulations all around!
