Sadie Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" will appear on the upcoming season of "Dancing with the Stars," as revealed this morning.

The full cast of season 19 of "DWTS" was announced on "Good Morning America" Thursday, when Robertson was announced. The 17-year-old model is paired with "DWTS" professional Mark Ballas, and she joins a cast that includes Olympian Lolo Jones, actor Alfonso Ribeiro, Walter Waltrip, Jonathan Bennett, and Lea Thompson.

"It's going to be really fun," Robertson said of her 'DWTS' debut.

When asked if she could practice dancing with any of her famous family members, Robertson replied, "Uncle Si maybe."

"DWTS" premieres Monday, Sept. 15. The hit ABC dancing series is hosted by Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews. Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli are also returning as judges this season.

Meanwhile, "Duck Dynasty" follows the Robertson family who became wealthy from their family-operated business, Duck Commander. Sadie is the daughter of Willie and Korie Robertson, and the granddaughter to Phil Robertson. Just last week, A&E signed "Duck Dynasty" to the network through next year. Phil Robertson's eldest son, and Sadie's uncle, Alan Robertson said of the news: "We know we're locked in for at least another full year, through 2015. Beyond that, we really don't know," according to The Shreveport Times.

Alan, also known as the "first beardless" member of the Robertson family, promised that the next year would include great stories on "Duck Dynasty."

"We have recommitted this year, both our family and the network production crew- to putting out some really good stories from our family that we can all enjoy," he said.

"Duck Dynasty" airs on A&E Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST.
