The Robertson family of Duck Dynasty fame “just keeps getting bigger.” On Friday afternoon, Sadie Robertson Huff congratulated her sister and brother-in-law who are expecting their second child together.
Willie and Korie Robertson’s adopted daughter, Rebecca Robertson Loflin, just announced that she’s expecting. She and her husband, John Reed, already have one little boy named Zane. But now they are expecting their second child, and Rebecca’s sister is super excited.
There’s been a procession of Robertson babies entering the world recently. Sadie herself just had her first child with husband Christian Huff on May 11. In addition, their brother, John Luke, and his wife, Mary Kate Robertson, had their second child named Ella in April. So the Robertson clan keeps growing, and at a rapid pace at that.
Sadie made sure to share a sweet message for Rebecca and John Reed to congratulate them on the pregnancy. As Sadie said, she can’t wait to “meet this little miracle.”
‘Duck Dynasty’ Stars’ Daughter Says Baby is Due on Christmas Day
Rebecca took to Instagram a few days ago to announce the big news to her more than 600,000 followers. She shared her excitement for the couple’s “rainbow baby” and revealed the child’s due date.
“Here comes the sun … so excited to announce our rainbow baby is due in December (to be exact, the due date is actually Christmas Day),” the Duck Dynasty daughter’s post began. She also included a photo of herself, John Reed, and little Zane wearing a shirt that adorably said “Big Brother.”
After suffering a miscarriage in late 2020, she opened up about her “humbling journey” and how it feels to be pregnant again.
“It’s been a very humbling journey for us since last October & a rollercoaster ride the past couple of weeks (will share more on that later) but through every obstacles we continue to see God’s goodness through our little growing miracle!” she explained.
“P.S. Thanks everyone who has sent us love, prayers & encouragements along the way. It really means the world to us,” Rebecca added.
Why Rebecca Robertson Loflin Called the Child Her ‘Rainbow Baby’
The Duck Dynasty stars’ daughter has bravely shared the story of her miscarriage before. As she mentioned in her Instagram post, she’s been through a lot in the last year following the loss.
You may have noticed she called her baby a “rainbow baby.” If you’ve never heard the term, here’s an explanation. According to Jennifer Kulp-Makarov, M.D., FACOG, on Parents.com, the term “rainbow baby” is used to describe “a baby born after a miscarriage, stillborn, or neonatal death.”
“It is called a rainbow baby because it is like a rainbow after a storm: something beautiful after something scary and dark,” Kulp-Makarov also explained. “… To create a life or bring a baby into the world after such a loss is amazing like a miracle for these parents.”
