Sadie Robertson Opens Up About New Christian Boyfriend Trevor Knight

Sadie Robertson has made headlines with her openness and honesty about her Christian faith, even praying for fans over YouTube. She has become an incredible role model to young girls and continues to conduct herself as a true follower of Jesus. But she has remained quite reserved about the details of her new relationship with Texas A&M quarterback Trevor Knight. Now, finally, she has spoken out about her new man. 

"We've been dating for three weeks, so it's super chill," Robertson told Entertainment Tonight. "He had messaged me because he goes to Haiti every year on a mission trip and he saw that I go to Haiti," she explains. "We just kinda connected through that, very much friends at first." 

Their romance bloomed when she accompanied him to a Justin Bieber concert. "Trevor lives in Texas and he was messaging me, and I was like, 'Uh, do you want to go to a Justin Bieber concert with me? Because I don't have anybody to go with.' And he was like, 'Sure.' So, he came and I guess we just hit it off," Robertson recalls. We didn't date then. Actually, I didn't talk to him for a month after that. I was like, 'No,'" she continues. "Then a month later he called me and I was like, 'So, why didn't you just talk to me for a month?' And we ended up becoming friends and, of course, started dating three weeks ago."

Robertson is relieved that her mother Korie, as well as the rest of the "Duck Dynasty" clan, approved of Knight. My family's a little scary and a little intimidating—they're big LSU fans and he plays for Texas A&M—so that was kinda funny, but he's a good guy," she says. "Even Pepaw Phil was nice!" 

Besides the fame and the fact the couple will be under the spotlight, Sadie is just super excited to meet a Christian guy who shares the same faith as her. "Trevor has to deal with his own kinda fame - that was weird for me," she says. "We're both kinda in the spotlight, but he does such a good job with it. He is a very strong Christian and he tells everybody about his faith, so we had a lot in common in that area."
