(Christian Post) “Duck Dynasty” patriarch, Phil Robertson recently learned that he has a 45-year-old daughter from an affair he had before he became Christian and said God turned his bad past into something positive.
The 74-year-old and his four sons, Al, Jase Willie, and Jep, shared the news about their new family member, Phyliss, on the latest episode of his BlazeTV podcast Unashamed With Phil Robertson.
“It’s a pretty cool explanation of redemption, reconciliation, love,” Phil said of finding out he had a daughter so late in life. “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. Forty-five years, that doesn’t sound like very long but you say, that’s a while. So finally, after all those years, we come together.”
Phyliss first reached out to Al and Jase by sending each brother a letter explaining that she has a strong DNA connection to them, according to results from a DNA test kit, and she believed Phil was her father.
Phil has talked honestly about his wild past of using drugs and cheating on his wife, Miss Kay, who he married when he was 17.
The Robertson brothers recounted some of Phil’s past during the episode before detailing their first conversations with their sister.
Jase said that when he first received Phyllis’ letter, which he had kept in his Bible, he wondered if it was a scam, because the family had received many letters from people who say they are loosely related and “need $10,000.” But as he learned more about Phyllis, and her family and Christian faith and work in missions, he knew she wasn’t out to scam the family.
“I started thinking, there’s a 45-year-old woman out there who doesn’t know who her dad is, and she’s looking. And I thought, even if it’s not dad, she needs to know it’s not dad,” said Al, so he asked their cousin and producer of the show to call Phyliss.
The call revealed that Phyliss was “not out for anything” and she was a Christian, so Al showed the letter to his parents. Miss Kay told Phil it was possible because of his past life. Phil said Miss Kay frequently told him that someone from his past would return, probably a son he didn’t know he had, but she was delighted to learn he had a daughter because she had always wanted a daughter.
