The dust has begun to settle around the Phil Robertson GQ scandal, and now the family has turned their focus towards the return of Duck Dynasty next week on A&E. In the four previous seasons of the reality hit, we have seen the large brood in a variety of lighthearted situations, but one thing avid viewers may not know is how blended this family really is.

In a new preview (see below), we find out that a new cast member has joined for this fifth season: Korie and Willie’s adopted daughter, Rebecca. The 20-something beauty has remained off-screen up until now, but she’s decided to step in front of cameras this year. But who is this mysterious Robertson family member?

Becca came to the family as an exchange student from Taiwan, and eventually, Willie and his wife took her in full-time as a foster child. Now, Rebecca and her adoptive mother are extremely close and have even opened a boutique together in Monroe, Louisiana, called Duck & Dressing.

Korie is so proud of her new daughter, that she included her in her Twitter tagline:  “Mom to four awesome kids plus a sweet exchange student who became ours.” How sweet!

Though we don’t know much else about Becca yet, we’re sure we’ll find out more soon as the show continues. For now, we’ll just keep admiring her amazing hair and style on Instagram!
