NEW YORK – The “Ducky Dynasty” has added another duckling to their flock.
Jep and Jessica Robertson introduced FOX411 to their four-month-old son Jules Augustus, who they affectionately call “Gus.” The parents of five spoke to us about their growing family and new A&E spinoff show, “Jep and Jessica: Growing the Dynasty.”
“I actually went to the Dominican Republic on a little missionary trip and I saw those kids there, and it really changed my life,” Jep told FOX411. “I came back and told Jessica. I saw things…there’s an orphanage there, and we would bring them like Hanes t-shirts, and they never had anything new and they would cry, and grasp the shirts, and I thought, ‘Man, there’s so many kids in need.”
The couple looked to their family members Willie and Korie, who have adopted before.
“We’ve leaned on them a lot, and asked them many a question,” said Jessica.
When asked about being the mother to Gus, the 35-year-old mom welled up with tears.
“It’s pretty extraordinary,” she said. “Like I said even on the show, your heart expands so much, and just to know and he wasn’t here a few months ago with us, it was all God’s plan to bring him in our lives.”
