Duck Dynasty’s John Luke Robertson and Wife Expecting Their First Child: ‘We Are Over the Moon’

Oh, baby! John Luke Robertson and his wife, Mary Kate Robertson (née McEacharn), announced that they are expecting their first child.

“Yep, that’s a baby,” the Duck Dynasty alum, 23, captioned their Saturday, May 11, Instagram reveal. In the upload, the dad-to-be held out a sonogram shot while Mary Kate, 22, cradled her baby bump in a pink dress.

She shared the same photo on social media, writing, “Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has congratulated us and left the sweetest comments about our baby we’re expecting! We have felt so loved and it’s been really special seeing everyone excited about this little dude! We are over the moon excited to meet him in October and I am just so grateful for the Lord entrusting us with this incredible gift.”

The mom-to-be added: “Excited to meet our sweet baby boy in October!!!”

She and John Luke tied the knot in 2015 at his family’s farm in Louisiana. “I had an amazing time!” the groom told Us Weekly exclusively in a statement at the time. His bride went on to say, “It was one of the best days of my life! It was everything I hoped it would be and more.”

The pair got engaged on John Luke’s 19th birthday in October 2014. “I am so excited to marry my best friend,” he told Us at the time. “I know my parents [Willie and Korie Robertson] married young as well, and they have always been examples of what ‘could be’ to me. Fast-forward 22 years and they are more in love than ever, and I hope Mary Kate and I are the same way in the years to come. God has truly blessed us.”
