Rory John Gates and his siblings, Jennifer Katharine Gates and Phoebe Adele Gates, were brought up in a conservative household.
They were not even allowed to have cell phones until they were 14 years old!
They had restricted screen time and were not as active on social media as other teenagers were at the time.
Jennifer started using Instagram only at the age of 19.
That explains why images of the Gates children are not readily available online.
Several tabloids resorted to using celebrity photos in articles on the younger Gates for whatever reason.
Jennifer was originally photographed by American actress and model Rachael Leigh Cook, who was then joined by Phoebe.
Rory was photographed by actor Chord Paul Overstreet.
Even pictures from their family vacation have bveen rarely published by the media, and this supposed "trend" has continued up to this day.
Despite the fact that some photos of Rory John Gates appeared on the Internet multiple times in the recent years, it seems the public will not be seeing him quite often online.
