Rebecca Robertson, New ‘Duck Dynasty’ Cast Member: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Duck Dynasty showed off a new family member during the Season 5 premiere.

Now as the show enters it’s sixth season, we hope to see more of the fun-loving daughter of Willie and Korie.

Here’s what you need to know about the 24-year-old who makes her on-screen debut this season in an episode titled, “Boomerang Becca.”


1. She Joined the Robertson Family as a Foster Child

Korie Robertson, wife of Willie, who runs Duck Commander, has this description on her Twitter profile:

Mom to four awesome kids plus a sweet exchange student who became ours. Love my big family. Thankful. God is good.

The couple took in Rebecca 10 years ago, after she spent time with their family as an exchange student. Rebecca joined four siblings in Willie Robertson‘s clan. Out of Willie’s five children, three are biological. Willie Junior was adopted as a baby. Willie expressed his feelings on adoption to Show Hope.

He said, “One of the principles of religion is just that – it’s an act of unselfishness and the best thing I feel I’ve ever done.”


2. She Was a Taiwanese Foreign Exchange Student

She has immersed herself into American life and Willie is proud of her motivation. The first episode showed Rebecca revealing her career path to him. At first, he was scared that she would never leave home, but was pleasantly surprised when she expressed an interest in running a business.

3. She Graduated From Louisiana State University

She graduated with a degree in fashion design. Then she moved to California to intern with stylists. She also worked in some high-end stores there. When Willie picked her up from the airport, Rebecca looked the part of the former fashion intern, wearing a scarf, and having, what Willie considered, too much luggage.


4. She’s a Blogger

Her blog, Duck & Dressing, is aptly named.

On January 7, she posted about her future plans:

Welcome to the Duck & Dressing blog! Its a new year and just wanted to start a new adventure so that maybe I can share some of the fun behind the scenes stuff that goes on around the store and also share some of the styles that we are featuring. We’ve been working around the clock getting the store running but we’ve been having some fun too!

Her post on January 10th showed off a new outfit and hair color.


5. She’s Opening a Clothing Store With Her Mom

The new store is located at 411 DeSiard Street in Monroe, Louisiana.
Expect lots of exciting new changes for Rebecca as she settles into her new life. She even has a fan page on Facebook already.
