“Duck Dynasty” stars Willie and Korie Robertson will soon be welcoming a new member into their family. The reality stars announced that they are in the process of adopting a 13-year-old boy.
Korie Robertson posted a photo of her children on Instagram with the caption, "We've had lots of questions about the cute kid popping up in our photos lately. We are excited to be in the process of adopting a new son! He's been with us since May, but we wanted some privacy and time for him and our family to bond before telling the world (It's a bit of an adjustment coming into this big, crazy family, ha). He's amazing, and we are all so thrilled to have another kid around the house. Couldn't keep the good news to ourselves any longer! We appreciate your prayers and support for our family!"
The new son will be the Robertson’s sixth child; they have three biological children and two adopted children, according to Christian Today.
Previously, Willie Robertson said that he and Korie had to use a variety of parenting techniques since their children have very different personalities.
"Some of our kids are one way, some of them were hard-headed, some of them were not. Some of them were super sensitive, so you have to take all of that into effect. I could look at Sadie one way, and she would start cryin'—like that!—it wasn't a spanking or anything like that, she was so sensitive. And John Luke was very hard-headed, and his brother, Will, was very hard-headed,” he said.
