The daughter-in-law of Willie and Korie Robertson has had a lot to celebrate in recent months. Not only did she just turn 25, but Mary Kate also gave birth to her second child in early April. In fact, her mother-in-law Korie has been gushing over her newest granddaughter ever since.

However, yesterday was all about paying tribute to Mary Kate. Korie took to Instagram last night and posted a loving message for her daughter-in-law. The Duck Dynasty star shared how fun it’s been to see Mary Kate grow as a mother and wife. In addition, Korie shared a sweet photo of Mary Kate holding her two small children – John Shepherd and Ella.

“Happy Birthday @marykaterob. It has been the most fun seeing you become a mom of two! I love your sweet smile, your laugh, the way you love @johnluke_robertson, John Shepherd and Ella. I love doing life with you…25 looks so good on you!” Korie said to her daughter-in-law.
