It is the best thing in the world to look around the room at beautiful, strong, faithful women that love your baby dearly! Women that are cheering and praying for her. Women who were there when she was born and will be there for her and @jacobdmayo through it all…And then to look over at your daughter and know that she is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. There’s nothing better!!
“Thank you to all of the sweet hostesses that made the day so special! Also, see the last picture, you’d better believe I made her sit on my lap for a pic 🤗 She’s still my baby girl, right moms?!”
Bella is marrying Jacob Mayo, a long-time friend who she began dating about a year ago. The couple hasn’t released a wedding date.
Bella Robertson Defends Decision to Get Married
Bella Robertson announced her engagement in October, and many people in the public admonished the 18-year-old for marrying so young.
She asked them to mind their own business.
“We started dating because he came home from college to be here for quarantine, and that’s been a big factor,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I don’t know if normally I would have gotten engaged to someone after six months, if we would have just met and started dating, you know? But on top of that, in the south so many people get married so young. Like, my parents got married at 18, my brother got married at 18, my grandparents married at 18. It’s very common around here so it didn’t really shock me too much about my age.”
Korie Robertson is excited for her youngest daughter Bella’s upcoming wedding, but that doesn’t mean they can’t repeat tradition from her youth.
The couple seem extremely happy in photos on her Instagram account.
