Jep and Jessica Robertson from “Duck Dynasty” have adopted an adorable baby boy!
“Duck Dynasty” stars Jep Robertson and Jessica Robertson have introduced the newest member of their family!
During the premiere of their A&E spinoff show “Jep and Jessica: Growing the Dynasty,” the happy couple showed off their adopted baby boy, who they have decided to name Jules “Gus” Augustus, according to E! News. The new eight-episode show follows the reality stars as they finalize the adoption process and take home their baby boy to join their four biological children- Lily, Merritt, Priscilla and River.
“Thanks for the love!” Jep tweeted on Thursday alongside an adorable photo of him and Gus in bed. “This has been a crazy, awesome ride but so worth it. Me and Gus signing out! #JepAndJessica.”
“It’s such a surreal moment, to finally have him in our arms,” Jessica said on the show. “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.”
“If you can spoil a child, we are definitely doing that,” Jep said Wednesday morning on “Good Morning America, according to ABC News.
“I’m telling you, there’s not an hour that goes by that he’s not kissed or told that he’s loved,” Jessica added. “It was a long journey but he finally came into our lives.”
Jessica opened up earlier this month about how they felt encouraged to adopt after being introduced to fans who were less fortunate.
“The past few years with ‘Duck Dynasty,’ our eyes have been opened and we’ve seen a lot of kids that are in need,” she told Country Rebel. “Knowing that we can make a difference and take a child in that maybe would never have a mommy or daddy, you’re changing a child’s life forever. And he’s going to change our life forever.”
Jep’s brother Willie Robertson and his wife Korie Robertson also announced earlier this month that they recently adopted a son, as HNGN previously reported. Korie took to Instagram to share that they are in the process of adopting a 13-year-old boy. They already have four children, two of which were also adopted.
“We’ve had lots of questions about the cute kid popping up in our photos lately. We are exited to be in the process of adopting a new son! He’s been with us since May!” she captioned a photo of all her children. “We wanted some privacy and time for him and our family to bond before telling the world…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!”
“Jep and Jessica: Growing the Dynasty” airs on A&E on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET.
