After a long 41 weeks of pregnancy, Duck Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson Huff finally got to meet her baby girl, Honey James Huff on Tuesday.
“We saw a million little miracles yesterday – the best one being this girl right here,” the 23-year-old captioned a series of photos of herself and husband Christian, snuggling their daughter for the first time.
“The pure goodness of God,” she wrote. “Story to come, but I’m way too occupied right now by cuteness.”
In a separate post, Sadie shared a photo of Honey wearing her personalized sweater (which all of the Robertson babies have had in recent years), writing, “Good morning world !!! I thought you might could use 9 pounds and 5 ounces of straight up goodness,” followed by a honey pot emoji.
Beaming grandma, Korie Robertson took to Instagram, with a tender recap of her experience watching her daughter give birth.
“Well, there are no words,” she wrote. “Honey James Huff you are a little miracle! We love you dearly and can’t get enough of every single detail of you. Your mom is absolutely, utterly amazing, and your dad is simply the best coach and encourager ever! There is nothing those two won’t do for you! You have a whole bunch of us that couldn’t be more excited that you’re here, and are going to be loving you and rooting you on your entire life. We can’t wait to see what God has planned for you! Welcome to the fam, Honey I love you!!”
The couple first announced the pregnancy news back in October, and have continued to share everything from their gender reveal to her growing bump and everything in between.
Last month, Sadie took to Instagram revealing their daughter’s name, and the precious meaning behind it.
“Going ahead and telling the world our sweet babies name because i would rather y’all hear it from me and christian then things going around,” Sadie began her Instagram caption. “This little girl and her name already mean the world to us.”
“Honey James Huff,” she wrote, followed by Proverbs 16:24.
“Gracious words are like HONEY, sweetness to the soul and health to the body,” she wrote, adding, “I’ve always loved this verse. Its made me have a love for the idea of all that honey is. It’s a sweet delicacy with a strong healing component.”
Sadie also explained how the word has been a constant in her and husband Christian’s relationship writing, “When Christian and I started dating we went through the book of Proverbs together and I remember getting to chapter 16 and as I read verse 24 i said to him, ‘you have words like honey. they are so sweet and are healing places in my heart I didn’t even know needed to be healed.’”
“On our first date we went to do pottery together and on my cup i simply wrote ‘honey’ because i called him the boy with the honey words,” she continued. “Fast forward 2 and a half years later and we have a daughter on the way who we so proudly get to name after one of the loveliest words. Not to mention this word reminds me of my great grandma who calls everyone she loves honey.”
On Mother’s Day, five days past her due date, Sadie shared photos of her and Christian still waiting in anticipation for the arrival of their baby girl.
In April, Sadie’s brother John Luke and his wife Mary Kate welcomed their second child, a baby girl named Ella Kathryn. Just over a month apart, these sweet little cousins are sure to be lifelong besties.
Congratulations to this “sweet” family of three, and to the village of Robertson’s surrounding their new life together.
