“Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson’s family is bigger than we thought!
On the latest "Unashamed" podcast, Robertson’s son Al revealed that he received a letter from a woman who claimed to be his sister. He said, “So basically, it was from a woman who said that by a DNA search, she thinks that Dad might be her dad.”
At first, Al “dismissed” the letter, but soon realized that “there might be something to this.”
"I started thinking, 'There's a 45-year-old woman out there who doesn't know who her dad is, and she's looking,'" Al added. "And I thought, 'Even if it's not Dad, she needs to know it's not Dad.'"
After Al approached Phil about the letter, he agreed to take a DNA test, which was a “99.9 percent match.”
Phil, 74, has previously admitted to being a philanderer before devoting himself to God. It seems like his daughter was conceived before he became a born-again Christian in the '70s. In 1966, he married his wife Kay, the mother of his sons Willie, Jase, Jules and Alan.
Paraphrasing a verse from the Bible, Phil said, “We know that in all things — in all things — even sin, God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Phil noted, "It's a pretty cool explanation of redemption, reconciliation, love. As it turns out, 45 years, you have a daughter that you don't know about, and she has a father she doesn't know about. Forty-five years — that doesn't sound like very long, but you say, 'That's a while.' So finally, after all those years, we come together."
Phil’s daughter Phyliss will be introduced on an upcoming episode of the podcast.
