LOUISIANA — Korie and Willie Robertson have announced that the Duck Dynasty is about to get a little bit bigger.

The couple is in the process of adopting a 13-year-old boy.

Korie says the young man has been with the family since May, but they wanted “some privacy and time for him and [their] family to bond before telling the world.”

“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 been with us since May, but we wanted some privacy and time for him and our family to bond before telling the world (It’s a bit of an adjustment coming into this big, crazy family, ha) 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! Love, The Robertson’s”

The new addition to the family will be the 6th child in Willie’s part of the Robertson clan. The Louisiana natives are parents to Rebecca, 27, John Luke, 20, Sadie, 18, and Willie Jr. and Bella, both 13.

Korie and Willie adopted Willie Jr. when he was a baby, and Rebecca was an exchange student who became their foster child in 2004.
