Sadie Robertson was already well-known for her role on Duck Dynasty but has had a bigger spotlight thanks to Dancing With the Stars. Fans are wondering about her boyfriend Blake Coward.
Sadie, 17, and Blake, 18, have been dating for about ten months.
They met at a softball game at Madison Academy in Alabama–where Blake went to school before graduating this year, where Blake goes to school.
Robertson has cousins who attend the academy and went to one of their softball games.
“I asked her on a date later,” Coward told AL.com. “It went great and then I visited her in Louisiana about a month later.”
Even before Sadie’s turn on Dancing With the Stars, Blake became somewhat famous for dating the young star.
Both have large followings on Twitter and Instagram, although Sadie’s is much larger.
Still, Coward has over 91,000 followers on Instagram and over 28,000 on Twitter.
Coward has shown no jealousy over Sadie dancing with Mark Ballas on DWTS and has been supportive of his girlfriend.
He often encourages his fans to go vote for Sadie and Mark so they can advance further in the show.
“Proudest boyfriend ever @sadierob YOU KILLED IT!!” he said in one post after she and Mark danced.
Blake has also visited Sadie several times in Los Angeles, where she’s living while competing on the show.
