A DNA test proved the connection – and Phil’s wife, Miss Kay, was apparently very supportive.
the Duck dynasty just won another member. In a new episode of the family’s Unashamed with Phil Robertson podcast, Robertson’s patriarch revealed that he had just discovered that he had fathered a girl during an affair in the 1970s. Al was the first to raise the issue, claiming that he and his brother Jase both received letters from a 45-year-old woman, Phyliss, who claimed to be their sister. “I took a quick look at it, there was DNA material in there. I immediately thought it was like a lot of the letters we received, “said Al, saying that they often receive mail from people claiming to be distant relatives. The conversation begins around 28.20 p.m .: “So, basically, it was a woman who said that through DNA research, she thinks Dad could be her father,” he said. “I’m like, oh whoa … there might be something to it.” Then I looked at his birthday and thought about when Dad became a Christian and thought he was already a Christian. We had to back up nine months. There was a clear line for Dad. There was everything until you became a Christian. A few days passed and then the more I read it the more I thought, this is something we have to understand. “ However, Al and Jase did not immediately go to their parents and wanted to see if they could first confirm this for themselves. “I started to think, there is a 45 year old woman who doesn’t know who her father is and she is watching,” said Al. “And I thought even if it wasn’t daddy, she must have known that it wasn’t dad. “ Finally, they concluded that there could be some merit in his claims and Al spoke to his parents. “Of course, Dad didn’t remember anything,” he said. “It was interesting because mom remembered a lot more than you did. You were drunk all the time and not in your head, but mom was not. “ Phil accepted a DNA test and it was a “99.99% match”.
“I said, bring her down! Cried Phil. “Our audience will meet my daughter, we have already met her. It’s a pretty cool explanation of redemption, reconciliation, love. In fact, 45, you have a daughter you don’t know, and she has a father she doesn’t know. 45 years doesn’t seem very long but you say, it’s a moment. So finally, after all these years, we come together. “ Phil said his wife Kay, aka Miss Kay, still suspected that something like this could happen – but thought he would have another son in the world. “In that case, she said, ‘I’m glad it’s a girl,'” said Phil, “I always wanted a girl.” Jase said Kay was “absolutely awesome” throughout the process, while Al praised his “grace” through it all. “If a lot of women learn that 45 years later there is a child they did not know they had, that cannot be right,” said Al. “He went against his wife. Often this news is not very well received. “ Jase joked that Phyliss could also have reacted negatively once she found out who her biological family was. “I thought, man, what a terrible deal for her. If she’s not familiar with Duck Dynasty or anything and she’s going to see it and say it, go for it. She’s going to be like, ‘Are you kidding me? ‘ “ Jase went on to say that her sister “loves Jesus, she has a great husband and children. She has done missionary work all over the world. “ Phyliss and Kay will appear in a future episode of “Unashamed”.
