DUCK DYNASTY STAR DISCOVERS CHILD: Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson had an affair many years ago and recently found out he also had an adult daughter. Phil and his kids Al, Jase, Jep and Willie shared the news on the Unashamed podcast. Al explained that he received a letter from a 45-year-old woman named Phyliss: “So basically, it was from a woman who said that by a DNA search, she thinks that dad might be her dad,” Al said, adding that he had “dismissed” the letter at first because the woman's birthday was after the time Phil had become a Christian in the 1970s. Eventually, Al approached Phil, who took a test, and they all met. “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.”
