Korie Robertson fell in love with Willie in third grade and reveals it in a sweet birthday message to him
Korie and Willie have been married to each other since 1992, and have six kids together: three biological and three adopted children, with a son-in-law and daughter-in-law too.
True love does exist, and you can probably ask Duck Dynasty star Korie Robertson for a few tips here and there. The actress paid an emotional tribute to her husband Willie Robertson through a social media post on his birthday, and what she had to say would melt your heart too.
Korie shared a series of images on Instagram of her husband growing up and getting older over the years. In the captions, she wrote, "I first laid eyes on @realwilliebosshog in 3rd grade at summer camp and fell instantly in love."
I first laid eyes on @realwilliebosshog in 3rd grade at summer camp and fell instantly in love 😍 (obviously! Look at those dimples) Today he turns 46, my how time flies! Many things have changed...we’ve grown together, have an amazing family, had successes and failures, good times and bad, lived many of our dreams (Willie’s playing in a celebrity golf tournament today on his birthday with Will as his caddy #livingthedream 🙌🏻) and that funny, thoughtful, passionate kid is still right there under that beard. Still loving you, Willie, forever and always. Looking forward to at least 46 more birthdays with you! #happybirthday #willieandkorie
Fans and followers of the couple, as well as the former A&E series, jumped on to the comment section of the post, wishing the couple happiness in their lives, with some even calling them #RelationshipGoals. One of the users commented, "Love everything about this post," while another said, "Happy birthday to your man! Your family is such a blessing."
Korie and Willie have been married to each other since 1992, and have six kids together: three biological (Sadie, Bella, and John Luke), and three adopted (Willie Jr., Rowdy, and Rebecca). They've also gained a new son-in-law (John Reed Loflin) and a daughter-in-law (Mary Kate McEacharn) over the last few years.
Korie had a vasectomy done in 2015, so the couple won't be having any more biological children. However, they could still be looking to adopt more kids.
In her novel, called Strong and Kind: Raising Kids of Character, she wrote about her experience with the medical procedure. "There were moments of bravery during this awful time," she shared. "I had to do a couple of interviews for the television show, and I had to make one appearance. I managed to fake feeling good."
