It has been a longtime dream of Sadie’s to compete for the coveted mirror ball trophy on the show, and now that her dream is being realized, she is having a blast.
First order of business for the pair — coming up with a nickname for their team.
The 17-year-old and her dance partner posted a video on Instagram announcing, “Quack Attack! Be a part of the Quack Pack.”
Seems appropriate since the budding model rose to fame as the heiress of the Duck Dynasty dynasty on her family’s A&E show, which follows the Robertson clan and their hugely successful Duck Commander duck-call business.
It wouldn’t be surprising if the dancing duo become fan favorites this season, especially after viewers check out their adorable “quack attack” video.
Sadie’s dad, Willie Robertson, says he is excited for his daughter, but also a little nervous.
“She came and asked me could she do it, and I said ‘Yes,’ and she started dancing right there… dancing all around the house. As a parent, you’re nervous… but I love her partner, love her dance partner,” the Duck Commander CEO told Fox & Friends.

Sadie’s mom, Korie Robertson, must be thrilled as well. Before the cast was announced, she told Us Weekly that her daughter has always wanted to be on the dance reality TV show.
“I think that our kids are really natural in front of the camera and they have fun with it,” said Korie. “Sadie I think wants to maybe be in a talk show and she wants to be on Dancing with the Stars!”
Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars premieres 8 p.m. ET Monday on ABC.
