As it turns out, the Duck Dynasty stars are in the process of adopting a new son, who has been with the family since May.
“We’ve had lots of questions about the cute kid popping up in our photos lately. We are excited to be in the process of adopting a new son!” wrote Korie, 42.. “He’s been with us since May, but we wanted some privacy and time for him and our family to bond before telling the world (It’s a bit of an adjustment coming into this big, crazy family, ha,).”
“He’s amazing, and we are all so thrilled to have another kid around the house,” Willie Robertson‘s wife continued. “Couldn’t keep the good news to ourselves any longer! We appreciate your prayers and support for our family! Love, The Robertson’s.”
The Louisiana natives are parents to Rebecca, 27, John Luke, 20, Sadie, 18, and Willie Jr. and Bella, both 13.
Korie and Willie adopted Willie Jr. when he was a baby, and Rebecca was an exchange student who became their foster child in 2004.
And it’s certainly an exciting time for the brood: In addition to the adoption news, Rebecca revealed on Saturday that she got engaged to John Reed Loflin.

“Tonight we oohed and aawed over the ring, swooned over the proposal story, talked wedding dreams, and welcomed new family,” Korie wrote on Instagram on Sunday evening. “Going to bed with a full heart (and a full tummy.)”
