The couple first announced that they were expecting a second child back in November.

"We are so incredibly excited to be welcoming another sweet baby into our family!!! This new life is such a gift we are so thankful for! Sheps going to be the sweetest big brother," Mary Kate Robertson wrote.

Baby Ella won't be the youngest member of the Robertson crew for long. John Luke's sister, Sadie Robertson, is also expecting a baby, due less than 2 weeks after Ella.

"Sometimes I can still hardly believe we're having baby girls less than 2 weeks apart! Goodness it's been such a special and fun journey to get to share with my sis-in-law!" Mary Kate Robertson wrote on March 1. "Our babies were showered yesterday by family and friends and I'm still kinda blown away by everyone's love."

 

John Luke and Mary Kate married in 2015.

Last year, Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson revealed that he had recently discovered that he had an adult daughter.

"It's a pretty cool explanation of redemption, reconciliation, love," Phil said. "As it turns out, 45 years, you have a daughter that you don't know about, and she has a father she doesn't know about. Forty-five years that doesn't sound like very long but you say, that's a while. So finally, after all those years, we come together."

Duck Dynasty aired on A&E from 2012 to 2017.
