This fall, Duck Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson garnered national fame when she came in second place on hit TV series Dancing With The Stars. Even though it’s been a crazy time for 17 year-old Sadie, she has managed to remain devoted to her high school boyfriend Blake Coward throughout it all.
Sadie met Blake when she attended a softball game at a rival high school, and the two immediately hit it off.
“I asked her on a date later,” Blake remembered. “It went great and then I visited her in Louisiana about a month later and we have been dating for three months now.”
One of Sadie’s favorite things about Blake is how supportive he is of her faith. Sadie is a devout Christian who is determined to remain a virgin until marriage, and Blake has never pressured her to do anything she doesn’t want to do.
“My boyfriend is very supportive of me publicly displaying my decision to stay pure until marriage,” Sadie said. “I think it’s also important because as teenagers we always get ‘the talk’ from adults … it’s another thing to hear about it from somebody who’s going through it with you.”
Blake doesn’t only support Sadie in faith, he also publicly supports her in everything she does. The proud boyfriend would regularly tweet praises of Sadie’s DWTS performances, and often urged fans to vote for her.
Blake’s supportive nature could be what separates him from Sadie’s past boyfriends. In season 2 of Duck Dynasty, Sadie famously introduced then-boyfriend Beau to her parents. Her father Willie took the young man on a hunting trip so that he could learn more about him, but apparently Beau didn’t last long in Sadie’s life.
Sadie also supports Blake as much as possible, regularly posting messages of love to him: “Random post just to say how proud I am of this man for the amazing example he sets for so many. You are a blessing to more people than you know. Never lose the fire you have for God. Love you”
