True love does exist — just ask Duck Dynasty star Korie Robertson! In an emotional Instagram post, the mother-of-six paid tribute to her husband, Willie Robertson, on his birthday, and what she had to say was simply adorable.

Korie shared several images on Instagram of her husband growing older over the years. “I first laid eyes on @realwilliebosshog in 3rd grade at summer camp and fell instantly in love,” she captioned the pictures. “Today he turns 46, my how time flies! Many things have changed…we’ve grown together, have an amazing family, had successes and failures, good times and bad, lived many of our dreams and that funny, thoughtful, passionate kid is still right there under that beard. Still loving you, Willie, forever and always. Looking forward to at least 46 more birthdays with you!”

It’s clear from the comments section that fans of the former A&E series still love this couple — and even look to them for serious #RelationshipGoals. “Love everything about this post,” one user wrote, while another added, “Happy birthday to your man! Your family is such a blessing.”

The happy couple wed in 1992 and are parents to three biological kids — Sadie, Bella, and John Luke — and three adopted kids: Willie Jr., Rowdy, and Rebecca. They’ve also gained son-in-law, John Reed Loflin, and daughter-in-law, Mary Kate McEacharn, over the last two years.

While the couple could adopt again, they won’t be having any more biological children, as Korie had a hysterectomy in 2015. She wrote about her experience in her novel Strong and Kind: Raising Kids of Character. “There were moments of bravery during this awful time,” she shared. “I had to do a couple of interviews for the television show, and I had to make one appearance. I managed to fake feeling good.” While there hasn’t been much talk of becoming grandparents yet — we bet one day, she’ll give family matriarch Miss Kay a run for her money in the grandma department!

Happy birthday, Willie! We hope this is your best year yet.
