The Little Duck Wife describes her childhood of playing outside, going to church, and hanging out with family. It all sounds very familiar to the lifestyle fans of Duck Dynasty, true of the rest of the Robertson family. “I LOVED growing up in Louisiana. That meant warm weather for the most part, so my little sister and I grew up running around barefoot outside, climbing trees, and a LOT of swimming,” Robertson describes.
Also, like her husband, Mary Kate has an entrepreneur father. Mr. McEacharn owns the oldest drug store in all of Louisiana. Both she and John Luke spent much of their time at their father’s businesses.
Well…almost adopted. Mary Kate often posts photos with a young baby boy. The boy is apparently a foster child of her parents. The family is in the process of permanently adopting. John Luke also has three adoptive siblings, Rebecca, Will, and Rowdy.
