Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas are finalists on Dancing With the Stars and fought hard to be a part of the final four. Throughout the season Sadie has been juggling her family life, school, and her boyfriend Blake Coward in addition to working hard on DWTS. Sadie revealed that when she first brought her boyfriend Coward to meet her family, her grandfather kept telling him that if he hurt Sadie, he was basically dead. He also kept warning Coward to “keep it in his pants.” Sadie Robertson is saving herself until marriage and she has several rules to keep herself pure – praying before dates and staying out of each other’s bedrooms. Fortunately Blake Coward was raised with the same values. Sadie told the Boston Herald:
I don’t really date guys who don’t feel the same way. It’s going to be way harder if we went into a relationship having different opinions about that. So going into it, Blake felt the same way. He’s raised in the same kind of family as I am, the same kind of church. You never know who you’re going to end up with.
Though Sadie’s family was harsh when meeting Coward, she sets the record straight that now they love her boyfriend.
My dad loves him, the whole family loves him. We’ve been dating for 10 months now, so he’s like a part of the family. We’re always together. When I’m in Louisiana, it’s a seven-hour drive away, and when I’m in L.A., it’s more like 32 hours. Basically, we’re best friends. He’s a great guy who really has a heart searching for God. He’s not perfect but he strives to be, and that’s all I can ask for. He’s really good at being kind.
Once Dancing With the Stars is over, Sadie will soon graduate high school and she has plans for her future that include boyfriend Blake Coward. She revealed:
I want to go to Harding University in Arkansas. It’s where my parents went, where my boyfriend is going. And I want to study journalism and end up doing something like a talk show. Of course, I could not have predicted anything that my life would be a year ago, so it’s hard to say!
