The Robertson family experienced their fair share of highs and lows over the course of the past week.
Even though the Robertson’s hit reality TV show Duck Dynasty ended in 2017, the family still keeps fans updated on their lives through social media. Fans have been able to watch the “kids” from the show grow up through the photos they and their parents share online.
Willie and Korie Robertson‘s children have recently experienced a number of major life events. Their daughter, Sadie, got engaged and plans to marry later this year. On top of that, their daughter, Rebecca, gave birth to their first grandchild in January, and their son, John Luke, is currently expecting his first child.
The upcoming birth of John Luke’s baby boy was what Korie celebrated as a “high” moment to her week. She shared on Instagram that she got the chance to see the baby on a 4D ultrasound when she accompanied John Luke and his wife Mary Kate to their appointment.
But in the midst of that joy, the Robertsons were also left to deal with some “low” events. In her same post, Korie revealed that Willie’s aunt Jan had passed away that week. Jan, whose brother is Willie’s father Phil, was a huge source of support for the family.
Korie shared that it was Jan who “never gave up on Phil and Kay‘s marriage” when Phil was struggling with alcohol and other inner demons. Korie credits Jan for setting him on the right track.
On top of that, Korie said that her and Willie’s youngest daughter, 17-year-old Bella, was involved in “a pretty bad wreck” that week. Thankfully, she’s alright, though she did have to be hospitalized and now has a sprained shoulder.
Korie says that as luck would have it, Bella actually hit a car driven by her own uncle, Korie’s brother Ryan. Bella’s friends also happened to be driving behind her at the time of the accident, and quickly stopped to help her.
Willie and Korie were out of town on their speaking tour, and couldn’t get to Bella right away. So Korie’s parents rushed to be by her side and stayed with her in the hospital.
“It’s tough being away when you get this phone call, but knowing she was surrounded by friends and family as soon as it happened made it bearable. So thankful!” Korie wrote.
We too, are thankful that Bella and Ryan are alright after their accident. We’ll be praying for Bella’s quick and complete recovery.
Our prayers also go out to the entire Robertson family as they mourn Jan’s passing. It’s clear she was a beloved member of the family and that she’ll be dearly missed.
