We have fallen in love with Willie Robertson, his wife Korie, and their 11-year-old son Will on Duck Dynasty over the past four seasons — but will Willie and his family be growing anytime soon? The reality star dished to People about potentially adopting another little one.
“I will never say never,” Willie teased. “Adoption is something very close to my heart. We are not currently in the process of adoption, but I always keep an open mind and heart to it.”
As for Willie’s already-adopted kid, Will, Willie says the adoption “never been a secret” that he’s hidden from his son, who they adopted when he was only five weeks old. "For one thing, he's biracial, so it was obvious. But here's the thing: when we look at him, we don't see an adopted kid. It doesn't even cross our minds. He's as much ours as our biological children."
According to the reality star himself, he and Korie made the decision to be open about their family in hopes of raising awareness about adoption. "If we're able to make even one family consider adoption, we'll do it," Willie says. "I don't know where his life would have been — I won't say it would have been bad — but he probably wouldn't have been with a father if we hadn't adopted him. There are so many kids out there who need help, and it doesn't matter what age, color, sex they are."
We love Willie’s outlook on life and family — it’s one of the reasons we love Duck Dynasty so much!
