Duck Dynasty's Luke Robertson may have just gotten engaged to Mary Kate McEacharn earlier this week, but it looks like their proposal might not have happened. According Robertson's sister, Sadie Roberston, who also happens to be a Dancing With the Stars contestant, her pro partner nearly blew his cover.

"I knew like two weeks before," the 17-year-old reality star explained to Us Weekly. "It was really hard for me to keep it from her since we are best friends. Mark [Ballas] almost ruined it!"

So, how did he almost ruin it? "All her friends came into our rehearsal and they were hanging out, and John Luke came in [with Mary Kate] and I was like, 'Hey buddy! I heard...' I was literally about to say, 'I heard you're going to have a big day soon,' and as I was saying it, someone tapped me on the shoulder and I turned around and forgot my thought," Ballas admitted to Us Weekly. "Can you imagine?"

Lucky for Robertson, his bride-to-be had no clue! And now, as wedding planning gets into full-swing, certain things are getting sorted out for their reported June nuptials. So who might have snagged a spot in this teen couple's wedding party? Robertson's sister, Sadie — at least, that's what she thinks.

"Of course [I'll be a bridesmaid]!" Roberston said at Dancing With the Stars. "It's my brother and my best friend! I have to!"

"[Mary Kate's] been my best friend for a long time," she added. "So it's going to be so awesome to have her as part of the family — she's going to be a Robertson!"
