The oldest of the Robertson children, Rebecca Robertson is not the biological daughter of Willie and Korie Robertson. The reality star was adopted by the Robertsons in her late teens. Regardless of her association with the Robertsons, Rebecca is still every bit a part of the family. A family that is best known for its work in the reality TV series, Duck Dynasty. The series which aired on A&E from 2012 to 2017 focused on the Robertson family and their renowned business, Duck Commander. While the series lasted only for a total of 5-years, fans fully embraced the Robertson family in the short time they were on TV. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Rebecca Robertson.
Rebecca Robertson was born on the 17th of October 1988. Born in Taiwan, not much is known about Rebecca’s early life. Her father died when Rebecca was just 11 years of age and Rebecca was raised by her mother, who is very much a central figure in her life even today.
When Rebecca was 16 years of age, she moved to the states and began staying with the Robertsons. When Rebecca first arrived in the states, she didn’t speak a word of English, which left Korie worried. However, Rebecca got along well with the Robertsons and the family decided to invite her for her senior year. It was in her senior year that Rebecca was fully accepted by the Robertsons and while she is yet to be officially adopted, she is the eldest of the Robertson family without a doubt.
“She came her senior year and it was somewhere in there that we just realized, I remember telling’ somebody that I had four kids and one of my little ones said, ‘No, you don’t; you have five.’ And Rebecca just became one of ours.”
Rebecca went on to graduate from Louisiana State University with a degree in Apparel Design in 2012.
Following her graduation in 2012, Rebecca decided to move to Los Angeles and started working as a wardrobe stylist. After a few years on the job and Rebecca decided to head home to Louisianna and established a clothing boutique, Duck & Dressing. Her newest endeavor proved to be successful for Rebecca who was also cast on the series, Duck Dynasty. Like most of her family members, Rebecca has been a part of the series right from its early years and stayed until the end. However, her responsibilities were equally distributed from managing her own business and helping out in the family whenever she could. But despite the less screentime, Rebecca was every bit part of the family and the fans took to her.
Rebecca Robertson is happily married to John Reed. The pair got engaged on New Year’s Eve 2015 and tied the knot a year after in 2016, in an exclusive wedding held in Mexico. Given the passing of her father, it was Willie who walked Rebecca down the aisle and it was a great family moment. As Korie puts it,
“She just got married in December and Willie walked her down the aisle and was able to wear her dad’s tie as he walked her down the aisle, so that was a really, really special moment,”
The pair announced the news of their pregnancy in July of 2018 and their first child, Zane, on the 1st of November, 2019. The family of three live on the other end of the street from Willie and Korie in West Monroe, Louisiana.
