John decided to talk to E! News about the engagement and he is as happy as possible. “I am so excited to marry my best friend,” John Luke said. “I know my parents married young as well, and they have always been examples of what ‘could be’ to me. Fast-forward 22 years and they are more in love than ever, and I hope Mary Kate and I are the same way in the years to come. God has truly blessed us,” he added.
Kate was also extremely happy to get engaged. She shared a photo with the beautiful engagement ring on her Instagram page. The cute pic actually shows Kate alongside her boyfriend and a huge sign with the words “Future Mrs. Robertson.”
“Happy Birthday to the boy I’m going to marry,” she wrote. “Happy Birthday to this hottie ..knew you were the one since day one JL,” Mary Kate also posted on her profile.
