Jep Robertson Expands the Duck Dynasty Through Adoption

Jep and Jessica Robertson, stars of the show Duck Dynasty, bring adoption to the spotlight in their spinoff show Jep and Jessica: Growing the Dynasty. The show revolves around the couple and the latest addition to the Robertson family: the baby boy they adopted.

Jep and Jessica named their baby boy Jules Agustus, calling him “Gus” for short. The new TV series has been created to follow the couple as they raise their new baby, along with their four biological children. Other members of the Robertson family are sure to make regular appearances on the show, but the focus lies on Jep and Jessica.

Jep and Jessica met in 2001, and they were married later that year. After having four children – Lily, Merritt, Priscilla, and River – Jessica encountered some health risks that prevented her from getting pregnant again, and it wasn’t long before the family started thinking about adoption. Now that they have brought the baby home, they couldn’t be happier. Jessica told Life & Style Magazine, “We wanted it to happen for so many years, so to actually have him and hold him and know he’s actually ours and we’re his forever family, we’re excited.”

Follow the family’s journey on Jep and Jessica: Growing the Dynasty, which premiered on January 20, 2016.
