Regardless of all the troubles, her six children have whipped over the years, Korie has maintained her calm demeanor and is the pillar of the family. Even though her young ducklings have taken off from the nest, Korie is very much a mother and is looking forward to taking care of her grandkids. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Korie Robertson.
Early Life and Meeting Willie Robertson:
Korie Howard Robertson was born on the 24th of October, 1973. Born to John and Chrys Howard, Korie spent most of her early life in Louisianna. Not much is known about Korie’s early life and the reality star has been relatively silent about the details.
Korie and Willie first met while still at school. Korie was in the 3rd grade and Willie was in 4th. And while the former attended a private school and the latter a public one, the duo attended the same summer camp. The pair first met at the summer camp and when they were on a hike, Willie asked if he could hold hands with Korie.
Marriage, Duck Commander, and Other things:
A shy character during her early years, Korie kept in touch with Willie even after the summer camp was over and the pair joined the same Christian group. Despite having been together for most of their life, the pair had not begun dating at this point. It was only 1 year before Korie graduated high school that she and Willie began officially dating. The pair tied the knot after Korie graduated high school. Even though the pair were young when they tied the knot, Willie revealed that it was an added advantage as neither of them had any emotional baggage that the other was not aware of.
After tying the knot, both Korie and Willie went off to Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas, and Korie graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Upon graduation, Korie joined the family business, Duck Commander, and helped Willie take the business to a whole new level. Even Willie recognizes the contribution Kroie has made to the business and is grateful for her input.
“In the early days, it was her encouragement that got me to start thinking about how to expand the business. Had I not been married to her, I never would have done anything that I’ve done today.”
The pair were eventually cast on the reality TV series, Duck Dynasty. The series was an instant hit amongst fans and Korie became a new fan favorite for being able to handle six kids, a family, and the manager of Duck Commander. Korie also sang in the family album, Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas, and has written a series of books including, The Women of Duck Commander, Faith Commander: Living Five Values from the Parables of Jesus, and The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynasty, Duck Commander Devotions for Kids and Strong and Kind: Raising Kids of Character.
According to credible source celebritynetworth, Kori Robertson has a net worth of $10M.
Korie Robertson is the mother of six lovely children, John Luke, Sadie, Will, Bella, Rowdy, and Rebecca. The pair’s first child John Luke was born in 1995 and was followed by five more. Of all the children, Rebecca, Will, and Rowdy were adopted by Korie, whereas John Luke, Sadie, and Bella are their own. But regardless of their associations, Korie made sure that each child deserved her undying love, something which is visible in all the family meetings.
With Duck Dynasty ending production in 2017, Korie has started traveling more and has been a part of several charitable institutions including Focus on the Family, which is committed to saving babies from abortion and aiding adoption.
