Ever since Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson announced that she would be starring in country singer Brett Eldredge's music video for "The Long Way," the rumors about them possibly being a couple have not slowed down, even six months after the video was released.
In an interview recently, Robertson was asked about their relationship status, and she laughed it off, saying they were "just friends." It appears that despite everyone's desire for them to be together, they really are just friends - seeing as Robertson just went public with her new boyfriend, actor Austin North.
21-year-old North is a Disney Channel actor who is best known for portraying Logan Watson on the sitcom I Didn't Do It, and smaller roles on Kickin' It, A.N.T. Farm, See Dad Run, and Jessie. According to his IMDb page, he is set to star in the Hulu original series All Night.
The 20-year-old reality star-turned-author and the actor seem to run in different crowds, which left the question - how did they meet? Well, she told Entertainment Tonight all!
Two summers ago, North messaged Robertson privately on Twitter. They quickly took their conversations offline and began texting and calling each other. They never actually met in person, so "things fizzled out," Robertson says.
"Almost two years have gone by and I was in LA for my book press, and my friend said she wanted to set me up with someone at Churchome when we went on a Wednesday night, and to my surprise it was Austin!" she said.
She continued, "We both laughed and couldn’t believe the randomness of finally meeting [through] a friend who had no idea we even knew each other."
They spent the next two days hanging out, and when she returned to LA, he took her on their first official date. The Duck Dynasty star, who lives in Nashville, says they've been officially together for about a month, and are figuring out how to make their long-distance relationship work.
"We are both super supportive of each other’s career and that’s been so awesome," she explains. "We look forward to getting to support each other in different things. He already plans to come see me speak at an upcoming event, and I can’t wait to watch his new show coming out. The good thing is I have a lot of work in LA right now, so I will be out there often, and his sister is working in Nashville with her music. So we are just going to make it work."

One fan commented on the photo accusing Robertson of choosing her boyfriends based on their physical looks, and Robertson went into detail about why her relationship with North is not superficial.
“He makes me laugh….he makes me feel special, he makes me feel like a best friend, he shows me the fruit of Jesus and he leads me to God,” Sadie wrote.
We wish Sadie and Austin nothing but the best!
