Duck Dynasty‘s Robertson family is celebrating two big milestones this week.

On Jan. 1, Korie and Willie Robertson’s daughter Rebecca announced her engagement to her longtime boyfriend, John Reed Loflin.

The couple met at the Voodoo Fest Music and Arts Festival in New Orleans on Halloween 2014, and have been attached at the hip ever since.

“I knew from the first moment I met her [that I’d propose],” Loflin told Us Weekly. “I have been planning in my head to ask her for a long while now. … I know we both want to start our lives together. And we would love to have children at a point as well!”

The two announced their engagement through a series of posts on their personal Instagram accounts.

Just two days later, Korie and Willie Robertson also used social media to reveal the news that they had recently adopted a teenage boy into their family.

“We’ve had lots of questions about the cute kid popping up in our photos lately,” Korie wrote, along with the photo above. “We are excited to be in the process of adopting a new son! He’s been with us since May, but we wanted some privacy and time for him and our family to bond before telling the world (it’s a bit of an adjustment coming into this big, crazy family ha). He’s amazing, and we are so thrilled to have another kid around the house. Couldn’t keep the good news to ourselves any longer! We appreciate your prayers and support for our family.”
