Rebecca Robertson Should Date Mark Ballas, Her Adopted Family Says

October 27, 2014 Updated: October 27, 2014

One of the Duck Dynasty families wants their oldest daughter to date dancer Mark Ballas.

Ballas, 28, is teamed with Sadie Robertson, 17, in the current season of Dancing With the Stars.

The pair have become close through the hours and hours of practice. Ballas is viewed by many as too old to be considered a love interest of Sadie’s, who also has a boyfriend. It’s more of a brother-sister type of relationship.

But Sadie has revealed that the family, including parents Willie and Korie, actually want to get Mark together with Sadie’s older sister Rebecca Robertson.

“Mark’s actually been out to the house twice now, and he really is so respectful of everything that we’ve asked. He is a trooper, because we really have pushed him to his limits. We’ve changed the dances and he has just been wonderful with making the changes that we need and making it great,” Sadie told TV Guide.

“And my family and him are so close. They love him. They, like, want him to date my older sister.”

Willie and Korie have five children. Rebecca is the oldest. She was adopted by Willie and Korie after being hosted by the family when she was an exchange student from Taiwan.

Rebecca recently returned to West Monroe, Louisiana, where most of the family lives, after a two-year fashion internship in Los Angeles.

After graduation from Lousiana State University, Rebecca “moved to California to intern with Hollywood stylists and worked in high-end retail boutiques,” according to A&E.

She joined the Duck Dynasty show for the first time in January 2014.

Rebecca, 24, has stayed busy, teaming with Korie to run the fashion boutique “Duck & Dressing” and the accompanying blog.

Part of her work is being the main model for the boutique, posing in all kinds of outfits.

She and Ballas seemed to strike up some chemistry lately, with Rebecca posting a video of Mark teaching her a few dance and kung fu moves.
