Erin's fourth daughter was born in 18 January 

The family are fundamental Christians and are close friends with the Duggars, whose TV show Counting On, was canceled by TLC in 2021 after eldest son Josh Duggar was found guilty on one count of "receipt of child pornography".

The families are both members of the religious organization Institute in Basic Life Principles (IBLP), a controversial and fundamentalist group whose followers adhere to strict guidelines for a righteous life.

Amazon is currently producing a docuseries on the religious organization, that will also focus on the Duggar's, the Bates' and the Plath family, who star in Welcome to Plathville, on TLC.
