Reality television stars Willie and Korie Robertson of A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” are planning to adopt another son.
Korie Robertson took to social media last week to announce that she and Willie have decided to adopt a 13-year-old boy who has reportedly been living with the family since May.
Korie wrote on Instagram: “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 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!
Willie and Korie now have six children total, including three biological children and three adopted children.
The Robertsons have long been advocates for adoption, with Korie previously telling People magazine that she believes there “shouldn’t be kids without homes […] it just shouldn’t happen.”
Willie has also spoken out in support of adoption, telling Show Hope, an orphan awareness group, that he believes adoption is the “Godly decision.”
Willie added during the Adoption Institute’s Angels in Adoption Gala in Washington D.C. in 2013 that he doesn’t see the difference between his adopted and biological children.
He said “I’ve done a lot of things in the past couple of years. I’ve met presidents and been all over the world. But I still say the best decision we ever made and that had the biggest impact on our lives was the adoption of our son, Will.”
