“It’ll be another classic Robertson family wedding. It’s in the front yard. 你懂, we seem to like the yard weddings,” 罗伯逊, 56, said in an interview while discussing the family’s latest docuseries “Dysfunction to Dynasty” on I Am Second.
“This is three in a row for [哥哥] Willie’s kids and we’re excited about it,” Robertson said while praising his niece for the woman she’s become since the height of the show’s popularity.
“你懂, it’s really pretty amazing because when the show first started, I think our only trepidation about doing a show where you’re kind of thrusting your kids and your teenagers into the limelight, I think that was all of our greatest fears, and for me as my grandkids because my kids are older,” explained the reality star and author. “But it has been amazing to see the kind of people that they’ve developed into post-‘Duck Dynasty.’ And all of them are very grounded and they’re kind of following the family tradition.”
While the eldest son of patriarch Phil Robertson, 75, acknowledged that many of them “have married pretty young,” Alan maintains “that’s just kind of our way” simply in the fact that “we kind of like to grow up together.”
“They’ve just brought in amazing people into the family so I can’t speak highly enough of all of my now-growing and getting married and having babies nieces and nephews,” Robertson said, 加, “It’s been quite a joy to see.”
The family recently welcomed in a new addition to their ever-growing family with Robertson’s other niece, Sadie Robertson, 23, giving birth last month to a beautiful baby girl she and husband, Christian Huff named Honey James.
He raved about the job Sadie and Christian are already doing as parents despite being so new to the gig and said the family can’t get enough of spending time with their new bundle.
“We’ve seen Honey a few times, especially Lisa,” Robertson said through laughter. “She’s such a baby nut, so every opportunity she has to make a lasagna or take something to their house, she’s over there so she can hug all on our little wonder woman.”
Added Robertson: “We laugh but Sadie and Christian look like superheroes. 你懂, it’s like Captain America meets Wonder Woman or Bat Girl or something. And so we knew that this was going to be a special little girl and she’s great. Sadie – it was her first delivery so she had some moments where it was a difficult delivery but she got through it and it just seems like [motherhood] fits her perfectly. It’s like anything else Sadie does. She just has that million-watt smile and it seems motherhood just makes her glow all the more. So everybody’s doing well. The baby is doing great too.”
在 “Dysfunction to Dynasty,” the curtain is pulled back on much of the family’s history that many didn’t see on “鸭王朝” and in the years since the series left cable TV.
后 11 季节, “鸭王朝” became one of the most-watched unscripted 电视 series in history. The Robertsons had called it quits and now more than 130 episodes of the record-breaking series are now available on 福克斯民族.
Robertson said the family felt it was the right time for a check-in of sorts as fans still constantly express their love and affinity for the show to him whenever he travels for speaking engagements.
