Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson has revealed the name she and her husband, Christian Huff, have chosen for their first child. The couple has previous shared that they are expecting a daughter in just a few weeks. Sadie shared an Instagram post where she began by discussing her desire to reveal her newborn’s name rather than having her fans hear it from other sources.

Sadie had previously revealed that she and Christian had chosen a name from the bible but that it wasn’t a common name. Now, she’s taken away speculation. “Going ahead and telling the world our sweet baby’s name because I would rather y’all hear it from me and Christian than things going around. this little girl and her name already mean the world to us. The couple has chosen to name their Honey James Huff. That’s definitely a ‘sweet’ name!

The Live Original founder added the bible verse that inspired Honey’s name in her post. “‘Gracious words are like HONEY, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.’ Proverbs‬ ‭16:24” She went into further detail on the special meaning behind this name. “I’ve always loved this verse. It made me have a love for the idea of all that honey is. It’s a sweet delicacy with a strong healing component. When Christian and I started dating we went through the book of Proverbs together and I remember getting to chapter 16 and as I read verse 24 I said to him, ‘you have words like honey. they are so sweet and are healing places in my heart I didn’t even know needed to be healed.'”

She went on to describe a special moment during their first date that holds significance for the name as well. “On our first date we went to do pottery together and on my cup, I simply wrote “honey” because I called him the boy with the honey words. Fast forward 2 and a half years later and we have a daughter on the way who we so proudly get to name after one of the loveliest words. Not to mention this word reminds me of my great-grandma who calls everyone she loves honey.”

The author also shared a message with her daughter. “Oh Honey, you are named with such intention. I pray over you all the time that you would be sweet and strong and you know what? I already know that you are. Those words will be your superpower in life. We can’t wait to meet you and see your story unfold before our eyes.”

We wish Sadie and Christian all the best as they prepare to welcome baby Honey in just a few short weeks.
