Amy Slaton-Halterman is having another baby boy 

The TLC star welcomed her first son Gage on Nov. 10, 2020. This summer, the couple will welcome their second son. 

“Gage is going to be a big brother in July 2022,” she captioned an Instagram picture of Gage wearing a “big brother” shirt at the beginning of the year. “I’m due July 18th!!!! We are over the moon!!!!” Now, Amy is revealing more details in a YouTube post titled “The Gender Reveal.” 

“I’m super excited; I’m hoping for a girl,” Amy says in the video. “Michael’s hoping for whatever — he’s the only one that knows.” Some of Amy’s family was present in the video, but Tammy Slaton was not there in person.

Amy had her family vote on whether they thought the baby was a boy or a girl. A majority of the family voted girl, but as Amy revealed, they’re having a baby boy. 

Amy Slaton says ‘what the f**k’ to having another baby boy 

As soon as she revealed what she was having, Amy’s response was, “What the f**k?” She laughed it off, adding: “I really wanted a girl.” 

“Are you joking?” she asks her husband, who was filming the video. “No,” he replied. 

“Amy’s reaction to finding out it’s a boy sent me,” said a fan on Reddit. “I know she’s happy and excited either way, but just the expression on her face instantly dropping was great.”

“John Alan,” Amy says in the video speaking to someone over FaceTime. She elaborates, saying they’ll call the baby “John Boy” for short. Amy’s sister Misty, who has appeared on 1000-lb Sisters, said: “I’m not calling him no John Boy.” 

At publication, it’s unclear if showrunners will film John Alan’s birth for the TLC series. But considering Amy had cameras present for the birth of her first son, it’s likely cameras will be there to capture the birth of John Alan for 1000-lb Sisters
