Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson attended her school prom in Monroe, Louisiana, over the weekend, and she was accompanied by a very special date: her cousin, Cole Robertson.
Instead of letting the fact that she had recently split from longtime boyfriend Blake Coward ruin her special day, Sadie decided to go to her dance anyway and create beautiful memories with her cousin — and she took to Instagram to share a particularly moving one.
Sadie posted a photo of herself and Cole looking very stylish in their formal wear, and she captioned it with a touching tribute to her cousin, writing, “making mems with the fam is the best, because we can laugh about them forever. thank you for always being there cuz! couldn’t do life without you!”
We think Sadie made a great decision taking her cousin to prom, because while taking your family member as your date may not be traditional (and probably not the date Sadie had in mind when she dreamed of her prom night), she made an important decision to go and have fun without needing an actual romantic interest at her side. She made the night about herself, and that in itself is so important.
Fans are thrilled to see that she enjoyed her prom, and the comments on the post are filled with positive messages, including one from blondebombpow_62, who wrote, “How FUN to go to prom with your cousin! No pressure to do things others are doing and still have a blast! It’s like having a chaperone but Not.”
Sadie also shared a stunning picture of her black-and-white dress — she looks so grown up and very elegant.
Korie Robertson took to Instagram to share a photo of Sadie and Cole, too, and her beautiful caption is all the evidence you’ll ever need to know what a proud mother she is.
She captioned the post with a sweet message, writing, “Feels like yesterday that these two were building forts in the yard. Last night was their senior prom @littlecoleofcereal What an awesome man of God you have become. So proud of you, and @legitsadierob I love every single thing about you! You were drop dead gorgeous last night, and your sweet spirit is even more beautiful than what we see on the outside. Your inner beauty shines through #proudmom #strongandkindkids.”
