Duck Dynasty star John Luke Robertson, the grandson of family patriarch Phil Robertson, is engaged to girlfriend Mary Kate McEacharn. He proposed at a party on Saturday—while he and his family celebrated his 19th birthday!
“I am so excited to marry my best friend,” John Luke said in a statement to E! News on Sunday. “I know my parents 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.”
McEacharn posted on her Instagram page late on Saturday a photo showing her flashing a sparkling engagement ring and her new fiancé holding a sign that reads, “Future Mrs. Robertson.”
“Happy Birthday to the boy I’m going to marry,” she wrote.
John Luke shared the same photo.
“She. Said. Yes. @missmarymcmcmc,” he said.
John Luke and McEacharn both attended Ouachita Christian School in Monroe, Louisiana. She is currently in college.
They began dating around March and have traveled abroad together.
