Jep and Jessica Robertson recently introduced the newest member of Duck Dynasty, an adopted son they named Jules Augustus.
Jules Augustus makes five children now for the celebrity couple, who said on their show, “It’s like such a surreal moment, to finally have him in our arms.” Jessica went on to reveal that this was something the Robertsons had been planning for some time now actually, to the chagrin of some and a surprise to many.
“We waited so long and wanted to happen for so many years, so to actually have him and hold him and know that he’s ours and we’re his forever family, we’re excited.”

The couple’s oldest child, Rebecca Lo, was a foreign exchange student before she became adopted and 13-year-old Willie Jr. Robertson was also adopted when he was just a baby. With all those mouths to feed, the family should be glad to be starting the new season off a ratings record with last year’s Duck Dynasty.
To be sure, this won’t be the first surprise twist for fans of the show.
