Duck Dynasty's Sadie Robertson Reacts After Grandfather Phil Discovers He Has a 45-Year-Old Daughter From an Affair

Sadie Robertson is speaking out in response to the news that her grandfather Phil Robertson has an adult daughter from an affair he had in the 1970s.

The 74-year-old Duck Dynasty star shared the news on his podcast this week during a conversation with his sons.

Phil‘s long lost daughter, a 45-year-old woman named Phyliss, contacted his sons and explained her story. They did a DNA test and it ended up being a “99.99 percent match.”

“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 while quoting a bible verse. “It’s a pretty cool explanation of redemption, reconciliation, love. 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 … that’s a while. So finally, after all those years, we’ve come together.”

Sadie responded to the story on Instagram by saying, “The bigger the better,” referring to her growing family.

Sadie got married last November and shared a photo from the special day.
