Robertson went on to share the special meaning behind the name, quoting the Bible passage Proverbs‬ ‭16:24‬: "Gracious words are like HONEY, sweetness to the soul and health to the body."

"I've always loved this verse," she explained. "Its made me have a love for the idea of all that honey is. It's a sweet delicacy with a strong healing component."

Continued Robertson, "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.' "

According to the expectant star, the word "honey" is also linked to her first date with Huff, whom she married on Nov. 25, 2019 at her family's Louisiana farm.

"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," Robertson wrote, sharing a throwback picture from the romantic outing.

"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," she continued. "Not to mention this word reminds me of my great grandma who calls everyone she loves honey."

Robertson concluded her post with a message to her daughter on the way, writing, "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 it that you are. Those words will be your super power in life," she added. "We can't wait to meet you and see your story unfold before our eyes 🍯."

In December, Robertson shared with PEOPLE that she and her husband "actually do have a baby name, but we are keeping it a secret."

"Christian and I, really before we even knew it was a girl or a boy, we decided on a girl and a boy name, and so as soon as we found out it was a girl, we knew her name." she explained. "It's been really sweet to get to call her by name and just know that. But we're going to save that for the rest of the world for a little while."

The Dancing with the Stars alumna also said that of everything that came out of her "whirlwind" year, her "pregnancy is the best."
