Duck Dynasty patriarch, Phil Robertson had an affair before giving his life to Christ that resulted in him having a daughter that he recently found out about.
Robertson and his boys revealed the information about the adult daughter during the Unashamed podcast on Thursday.
We know that in all things — in all things — even sin, God works for the good of those who love him who have been called according to his purpose,” Phil.
During the podcast, his son Al explained that he received a letter from a woman named Phyliss who was 45 and claiming to be his sister.
So basically, it was from a woman who said that by a DNA search, she thinks that dad might be her dad,” he shared.
At first he dismissed the letter because she was born after his father became a Christian.
We should note that Phil married his wife Miss Kay in 1966 and they are still happily married.
“I started thinking, there’s a 45-year-old woman out there who doesn’t know who her dad is, and she’s looking,” Al said. “And I thought, even if it’s not dad, she needs to know it’s not dad.”
Al finally approached his parents, and Phil agreed to take a DNA test — which ended up being a “99.9 percent match.”
Phil interjected to say that when he got the call he told him to “bring her on down” so they could meet.
We know that in all things — in all things — even sin, God works for the good of those who love him who have been called according to his purpose,” Phil said.
“It’s a pretty cool explanation of redemption, reconciliation, love,” the Robertson patriarch said. “As it turns out, 45 years, you have a daughter that you don’t know about, and she has a father she doesn’t know about. 45 years that doesn’t sound like very long but you say, that’s a while. So finally, after all those years, we come together.”
The family has already met Phyliss and the Duck Dynasty audience can expect to meet her soon on an upcoming episode of the podcast, Phil shared.
