It was an unbelievably happy, happy, happy birthday for Duck Dynasty teen John Luke Robertson as he proposed to his girlfriend, Mary Kate McEacharn, on the day he turned 19, and she said yes!
John Luke posted the photo above on instagram in which he is seen holding a sign that reads “Future Mrs. Robertson with an arrow pointing to Mary Kate showing off her engagement ring. He captioned the picture simply, “She. Said. Yes.” Mary Kate posted a black-and-white version of the same photo on her account and wrote, “Happy Birthday to the boy I’m going to marry”
“I am so excited to marry my best friend,” John Luke tells Us Weekly. “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.”
A number of Robertson family members offered up their congratulations and happy birthday wishes to John Luke on social media, including his mom Korie Robertson:
