Like parents, John Luke Robertson met fiancee at camp

Duck Dynasty star John Luke Robertson recently popped the question to his girlfriend Mary Kate McEacharn and like his reality show star parents, Willie and Korie Robertson, he met her at summer camp.

Robertson talked about the camp connection in an Us interview:

“We actually met four years ago at a Christian summer camp,” Robertson, 19, told Us, adding that the two connected further in a high school chemistry class. “There was some chemistry!” he joked. In fact, Robertson spent a year trying to win over McEacharn. “I had tried to date her before, and she kept turning me down!” he told Us. “I just kept at it and she finally said yes!”

Robertson’s dad used to work at the camp – Camp Ch-Yo-Ca in Louisiana – and was a camper there before that.
