John Luke Robertson, grandson of "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson, is engaged.

John Luke The 19-year-old son of Willie and Korie Robertson posted this nice photo of the happy news of himself and his intended, Mary Kate McEacharn .

In a statement to E! News, the younger Robertson said, "I know my parents married young as well, and they have always been examples of what 'could be' to me. Fast-forward 22 years and they are more in love than ever, and I hope Mary Kate and I are the same way in the years to come. God has truly blessed us."

Incidentally, Phil and Ms. Kay, as she is known, have been married for five decades but she got her wedding bling only last year.

"After 50 years of marriage Papaw Phil finally gave Mamaw Kay a wedding ring for Christmas,"  John Luke's sister, Sadie Robertson, posted last December.

Wonder if A&E has plans for a Duck Wedding special?
