'Duck Dynasty' Teen Star John Luke Robertson Engaged to Be Married

Mary Kate McEacharn, John Luke RobertsonWowza! John Luke Robertson, the eldest son of Willie Robertson and Korie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame, got engaged on Saturday to his girlfriend Mary Kate McEacharn. It was also the teen reality star's 19th birthday.

It's said to have been a spectacular party, with John Luke's cousin Reed Robertson posting to Twitter, "Coolest engagement/birthday party ever." JL's little sis Sadie Robertson reportedly made the trip home to help her bro and soon-to-be sister-in-law celebrate. She is currently still in the running on this season's Dancing With the Stars.

"She. Said. Yes," John Luke posted on Instagram Saturday night, along with the sweet picture of his bride-to-be showing off her new bling while he held a sign that said, "Future Mrs. Robertson," with an arrow pointed to her.

In a statement to Us Weekly, John Luke said:

I am so excited to marry my best friend ... I know my parents married young as well, and they have always been examples of what 'could be' to me.  Fast-forward 22 years and they are more in love than ever, and I hope Mary Kate and I are the same way in the years to come. God has truly blessed us.

The Robertsons famously live by conservative Christian values, and have stood up for their beliefs even when met with public scorn, so it's not totally surprising that this couple would get engaged so gosh darn young.

Congrats to the couple, and we just hope the cameras were rolling at the party. Nothing like a good engagement caught on film for some awesome reality TV!

Do you think John Luke is too young to get engaged?
