Rebecca, who was an exchange student from Taiwan before joining Korie and Willie Robertson's family as their foster child, got many congratulatory messages in the comment section of her post, including from sister Sadie Robertson, who recently became a new mom: "MY HEART IS SO HAPPY ❤️."

Korie wrote, "Soooo excited!!! And I love that big brother 🥰," and sister Bella Robertson commented, "MY FAVORITE NEWS EVER."

In November, Rebecca revealed on Instagram that she suffered a miscarriage in October during her first trimester. She said she debated whether to share the sad news, explaining that it would make her "heart ache every single time" someone asked when she was having another child and saw "baby announcements flooding my feed" on social media.

"I actually found out I was pregnant a while back, we were ecstatic because we had planned on growing our family for quite some time now," she wrote at the time. "We kept it a secret so we could surprise our family with this exciting news during the holidays. But when I woke up on October 29th that morning in a pool of blood I knew something was very wrong."

She went on to say that "sharing it actually has helped me heal, recognize the lost & validate my sadness is the first step towards recovery."
