“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 he invited his daughter, Phyllis, to share about how she discovered he was her father on his popular podcast.
The 74-year-old and Phyllis were also joined by two of his sons, Al and Jase, and his wife Miss Kay on the latest episode of his BlazeTV podcast Unashamed With Phil Robertson.
“Phyllis, all I can tell you is: I’m glad you found me,” Phil told his long lost daughter during the podcast. “I’m glad I found you … Welcome aboard.”
Phil has always talked honestly about his wild past of using drugs and cheating on his wife, Miss Kay, whom he married when he was 17. Phyllis was a result of his past life, which he just discovered.
On Sunday’s episode, Phyllis had a chance to share about her life before learning through a DNA test, three years ago, that she and her siblings shared different fathers.
She explained that her genealogy results weren’t “matching up” with what she was previously told about her heritage. Her results revealed that she and her two siblings were actually “half-siblings.”
After taking a deeper look into her family tree, it led her to believe Phil was her dad. Phyllis then sent a letter to Jase and Al, which eventually led them to a paternity test that confirmed she was the “Duck Dynasty” star’s daughter.
Phyllis admitted that she had heard of the “Duck Dynasty” show, which ran for five years, but had never seen it. She was a missionary during the time of the reality series’ success.
“It was not on our radar,” she said. However, she did watch a few episodes before officially meeting Phil but then decided to stop watching to avoid “preconceived ideas” of her who the family was.
When the father and daughter were finally brought together to meet and speak face to face for the first time, Phil told his family he wanted to speak with Phyllis privately.
