Sadie Robertson couldn’t wait to reveal her baby’s name.
While the Duck Dynasty star’s little girl hasn’t been born yet, it seems she and her husband, Christian Huff, have already decided on a moniker for the child. Robertson, 23, announced her daughter’s name via Instagram on Friday, April 23.
“Going ahead and telling the world our sweet babies name because I would rather y’all hear it from me and Christian [than] things going around. this little girl and her name already mean the world to us,” she captioned her post. “Honey James Huff.”
The actress then added a bible verse: “Gracious words are like HONEY, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.”
“I’ve always loved this verse,” she continued. “It’s made me have a love for the idea of all that honey is. It’s a sweet delicacy with a strong healing component. 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’ (swipe) because i called him the boy with the honey words. 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.
“Oh Honey, you are named with such intention. I pray over you all the time that you would be sweet and strong and you know what? I already know it that you are. Those words will be your super power in life. We can’t wait to meet you and see your story unfold before our eyes.”
Robertson announced she was expecting her first child with Huff in October last year. In a sweet Instagram post, she shared the happy news with fans as she held up a picture of her most recent sonogram.
“SCREAMING WITH EXCITEMENT TO SHARE THIS NEWS!” Robertson captioned the post. “Baby we already adore you. What I’ve learned from you already.”
Later that month, the reality star revealed she was hospitalised after testing positive for coronavirus.
“Life update: I’m not going to lie, this has been one of the most challenging things. I got Covid-19 and ended up getting very sick,” Robertson wrote alongside an image of her in hospital. “I know everyone experiences covid differently, but wow these symptoms are wild. I’ve definitely struggled through this one!”
Robertson and Huff started dating in September 2018 and announced news of their engagement in June last year. The pair tied the knot on her family’s Louisiana farm four months later.
