Rebecca Lo Robertson: Pregnant with First Child!
Rebecca Lo Robertson has some rather exciting news to share.
You may have guessed it based on our headline above, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth repeating:
The Duck Dynasty alum is pregnant with her very first child!
Robertson tells Us Weekly that she’s nearly 15 weeks along and is due on January 15.
She also explains why she told her 15-year old sister Bella about the impending baby before she even told her husband, John Reed Loflin.
You see, she needed her sibling’s help to surprise John on his birthday.
“I bought a little baby denim jacket cause me and my husband both love denim jackets and we always wear matching stuff,” the Duck and Dressing boutique owner revealed.
However, when Rebeca presented John with the item, he thought it was for their well-dressed and quite fancy French bulldog. HA!
It wasn’t until he saw the pregnancy test that he realized what was actually happening.
“He was shocked and like, ‘Wait, what!?’” Rebecca tells the tabloid, adding:
“He was just crying then, of course, I was laughing the whole time.”
For those unaware, Rebecca has an interesting story:
She arrived to live with the Robertson family as an exchange student from Taiwan when she was 16 years old.
She has not been legally adopted by her famous relatives, but that’s just a nit-pick or a technicality. She is very much considered a family member.
Robertson’s parents, Willie and Korie Robertson, were just as shocked as Loflin to learn about their grandkid on the way.
“My mom was like, ‘Oh my god! Ah! Ah!’ And then she started crying and she was like, ‘Are you feeling okay?’” Rebecca Lo relayed to Us Weekly.
Rebecca and John got married in December of 2016 — and they do plan on learning their baby’s gender.
The test results will be in on July 30.
Both mom and dad just want a healthy boy or girl, of course, but…
“I think John Reed is thinking like, he wants to show his boy how to play draws and go hunt and you know,” Rebecca says, being sure to add:
“But of course girls can do all of that too.”
Duck Dynasty aired on A&E from 2012 to 2017 and centered around the Robertson family and their duck call business.
Rebecca did not play a major role, although she was definitely known over the years to viewers.
Rebecca’s sister, Sadie Robertson, told Pop Culture.com at one point that the likelihood of a Duck Dynasty reunion in the near future is slim.
But not none!
“Right now, for sure not,” she said in February. “We are totally on break. My little siblings are growing up, and my parents just wanted to be parents, and raise them up in a normal way, and try to get that normal capacity back.
“For me, I moved to Nashville. We’re all around right now, doing our thing. Maybe one day, but it would have to be a while.”
