Three weeks after announcing that she and her husband, Christian Huff, are expecting their first child together, Sadie Robertson made another major reveal on Instagram. She, along with her mom and sister, Bella, had all tested positive for COVID-19.
On October 4, the 23-year-old took to Instagram to share a photo of her and Huff gleefully smiling at the camera while holding a series of images from one of their recent sonogram appointments. The former reality star wrote, “SCREAMING WITH EXCITEMENT TO SHARE THIS NEWS! Baby, we already adore you.”

“What I’ve learned from you already,” Robertson continued. “God has still been creating. God is still believing in us.”
However, not long after breaking the exciting news to her fans, the new-mom-to-be took to Instagram against, this time to details her scary battle with COVID-19. As Robertson candidly admitted, the battle against the novel coronavirus was a difficult one.
“Life update,” Robertson began her statement. “I’m not going to lie, this has been one of the most challenging things. I got Covid-19 and ended up getting very sick. I know everyone experiences covid differently, but wow these symptoms are wild. I’ve definitely struggled through this one!”
Sadie Robertson added that thankfully, despite being hospitalized because of the virus, her little one—who they will meet in early 2021—is still doing well. “Thankfully, baby Huff is doing great and healthy, and I am now healing as well.”
“I’m no longer in the hospital (this pic was not from today) and I have just about fully recovered. I’ve learned a lot and I have been challenged in a lot of new ways. I will say my dependency on Jesus has never felt greater in some of the hardest moments of this sickness. I’m thankful I serve a savior who is with me in these moments that feel rather lonely. My heart and my family’s heart goes out to everyone suffering from Covid. Going to be chatting with my mom and Bella who also had Covid on this Wednesday’s podcast.”
Several people like Candace Cameron Bure, Audrey Roloff, Carlin Bates, and many more flocked to the comments section to let Robertson know that they are “so thankful you and baby are OK!” “Oh no, I’m so sorry, Sadie,” Roloff wrote. “Ugh. Praying for you and that precious baby.”
