The fans of "Bringing Up Bates" have been watching Tori Bates and her relationship with Bobby Smith for a while. The two seem like they get along great and fans have been wondering if they would end up married soon. They aren't actually engaged yet, but their relationship is obviously very serious. Now Knox News is sharing that on a new episode of "Bringing Up Bates," this couple revealed that they are ready to take things to the next level.

What is going on with Tori and Bobby?

One big issue that these two have been dealing with is distance. Tori Bates was in Tennessee and Bobby has been living in Florida.

It turns out that he is now planning to move back to be closer to her. He is in college in Florida and wants to live closer to Tori when he is done. This was filmed back in March. It is possible that Bobby is already living near her, but they just haven't shared it all with fans yet. He shared on his Instagram that he just had a whirlwind trip and got to spend two days with her, so it sounds like the move hasn't happened just yet.

Tori and Bobby even sat down and explained to her family that they do have plans to get married after college. This couple is really excited about their lives together and what is going to happen next. Lucky for the fans, we should get to see most of it go down on their show "Bringing Up Bates."

What does her dad Gil think of what is going on?

Gil Bates has known Bobby for a while, and it sounds like he is pretty happy about the situation.

He feels like Bobby is the one for Tori and will take care of her, which is what matters. He also feels like this is what the Lord wants. Gil even offered Bobby a chance to work with him since he is going into ministry and they have a church that they have been working on. This would be a great chance for him to already have a job and also get to work with his future father-in-law.

It really does sound like Tori Bates and Bobby Smith will be engaged before you know it. This couple seems to be doing great, and they are really excited about their future together. The Bates are good friends of the Duggars, but they do their courting a bit different than the Duggars do.
