It looks like Amy Slaton’s dream of expanding her little family of three is coming true. The 1000-lb Sisters star recently revealed that she’s expecting baby number two with her husband Michael Halterman.

Since beginning her weight loss journey, Amy has maintained that she had big dreams of creating a family with Michael and expressed that they couldn’t wait to have children. However, due to her weight loss surgery, Amy was told that she should wait up to two years before trying to conceive.

Unfortunately, things didn’t exactly go to plan and Amy ended up pregnant just a few short months following her surgery.

Thankfully, despite the risks involved, Amy delivered her first healthy child, a son named Gage, in November 2020. And now, baby Gage is expecting a little brother or sister.

Taking to her Instagram, Amy shared the exciting pregnancy news with her fans and followers.

In the post, Amy shared an adorable picture of Gage wearing a shirt that says, “I’m going to be a big brother 2022.”

“Gage is going to be a big brother in july 2022,” Amy gushed in the post’s caption. “Im due july 18th!!!! We are over the moon!!!!”

During the current season of the hit TLC show, Amy and Michael have had ongoing discussions about their need for a bigger place to call home.

Although Amy wasn’t expecting at the time, she and Michael have already started the hunt for a “permanent” home.

“Me and Michael want to get a bigger house cuz our house is getting too small for the three of us,” Amy said during a Season 3 confessional.

“If we go to a next house, I want it to be a little bit permanent,” she then told Michael. “I want to make it a home. Make it a forever house.”

Amy and Michael put their initial house search on hold after Tammy Slaton got sick

It’s no secret that Amy has been having a tough time caring for her son, Gage, while also continuously caring for her sister, Tammy.

Tammy has continued to struggle with her weight and despite the show’s three seasons, Tammy has yet to even qualify for her weight loss surgery because she’s refused to commit to the plan of a reduced diet and increased activity.

Because of Amy’s continued devotion to caring for Tammy, she and Michael put aside their first search for a home because Tammy had fallen ill.

“Tammy is at a standstill from her weight,” Amy explained. “She hasn’t lost. She hasn’t gained. So, it’s time to move. There’s only so much help I can give a person.”

And now that Amy is expecting another baby, she may push even harder for Tammy to become more self-sufficient.

1000-lb Sisters airs Mondays at 10/9c on TLC.

Let’s hope Amy and he husband move and leave Tammy to fend for herself. If shes capable of over eating on her own let her do everything else on her own house. Don’t neglect your own children for that giant size baby. Tammy loves the attention and everybody doing her dirty work for her. She acts like she hates it and gets pissed it they don’t give her her way. Grow up Tammy! You got the size you are all on your own. None of your siblings shoved food in your mouth to eat it. It’s your life and what a waste of life you are making it.Good luck finding a man who will tolerate your eating habits and temper tantrums. Amy good luck on your second baby journey. Take care of yourself according to doctors orders. Gage is a beautiful healthy boy and make this second one just like him.
