"Primetime Nightline" has gained unique access into the life of this (Extra) Ordinary Family -- Gil and Kelly and their 18 biological children, all 20 of whom reside cozily in their sprawling home outside of Knoxville, Tennessee. The Bates learn together, play together, pray together and sing together.
