Si Robertson keeps us laughing week after week on Duck Dynasty with his charm, wacky sense of humor, and hey, a bit of insanity. And though we may not see them each week, Uncle Si actually does have a wife and children of his own, and he recently gushed about them, and why they aren’t on the show!
Duck Dynasty‘s Si Robertson gets swarmed with marriage proposals from women all over, but did you know that the fan favorite is actually married, and has been for a very long time? Yes, in case you didn’t know, Uncle Si has been married for 43 years and counting. In the new issue of In Touch Weekly, Si Robertson opened up about his wife and children, revealing that he also has eight grandchildren!
“One woman’s got my heart. Her name is Miss Christine. We’ve been married for 43 years,” Si explained, adding that his wife is not on the show because: “she’s got better sense than all the rest of us.” The witty redneck also revealed that his wife refused to marry him at first, because doctors told her she couldn’t have children. Well, it sure looks like she proved them wrong!
As for being a star on Duck Dynasty, Si insists that it is not all that it is cracked up to be, as he revealed: “We’ve lost our privacy. I don’t really like that part of it, to be honest. But I guess that’s the cost of being famous.”
