Ten months later, Duck Commander CEO Willie and his wife Korie Robertson are getting ready to become first-time grandparents.

Their daughter, Rebecca Lo Robertson, and her husband, John Reed Loflin, announced that they are expecting their first child together next year.

The Duck Dynasty alum shared the exciting news on Instagram along with a video and caption that read: "We are having a human baby 🙌🏽👶🏻❤️ Baby bae coming Jan 2019."

In the adorable clip, Rebecca shows her husband's reaction after seeing the pregnancy test, and then surprises him with a tiny denim jacket.

John, who was startled by the news, could only ask, "Are you pregnant? Are you serious? Are you serious? You’re pregnant?"

“I love you. Are you serious?” he continued.

He later took to Instagram to share the news on his page, writing, "I’m going to be a DAD 😏👶🏽🤙🏽🙌🏽."

The 29-year-old mom-to-be, who is 15 weeks along, also recorded her mother's reaction to the news. Korie then posted the video on Instagram, admitting that she's "been dying to tell y'all this."

"@rebeccalorobertson@johnreedloflin are having a baby🎉🙌🏻👏🏼🤗Which means Willie and I are going to be grandparents 👵❤️👴The kids said my voice just got higher and higher when they told us the news 'You feel fine; you feel normal?!?' 😂Sooo excited!!! She’s due in January, can’t wait!!! What will they call us?? Suggestions?" she wrote in the caption of the video.

Korie and Willie became foster parents to Rebecca in 2004 when she came from Taiwan as an exchange student. Although they never legally adopted her, she's still considered as one of their kids.

She was on the show from 2012 until 2017 when the series ended.

In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly, the couple revealed that they don't know the gender of the child yet, but will be finding out on July 30. Regardless of the baby's sex, they're "just praying for a healthy child."

Rebecca also explained that she gave John the "little baby denim jacket" to break the news of her pregnancy because they both "always wear matching stuff," especially denim jackets.

Apparently she gave him the jacket on his birthday, but he thought it was meant for their bulldog Leuxla.

"He was shocked and like, 'Wait, what!?' He was just crying then, of course, I was laughing the whole time."

In addition to becoming first-time parents, the couple also recently bought a new house. It's currently under renovation, so they're living across the street from Willie and Korie in West Monroe, Louisiana.

Rebecca and John tied the knot in December 2016 in Mexico, 11 months after announcing their engagement.
