Duck Dynasty’s Si Robertson reveals his daughter Trasa Cobern’s biography in his latest book Si-cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty’s Favorite Uncle.
Trasa Robertson was born on August 30, 1975, at a military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany.
Trasa was named after her mother Christine Robertson’s father, Asa Lee Raney.
Si Robertson’s daughter has a double citizenship as she was born in Germany while he was stationed there.
From the time she was born, Trasa was Daddy’s girl.

When she was only a toddler, her parents realized she was an exceptional child.
Trasa Robertson graduated from high school in 1993 and she received a Presidential Scholarship to Texas A&M University in College Station.
In high school she was named a student delegate to the United Nations and visited the Hague in the Netherlands. As a National Merit Scholar, Trasa was invited to the White House where she met First Lady Hillary Clinton.
During her sophomore year of college, Trasa became a model in advertisements around the country.
Trasa Robertson met her future husband, Kyle Cobern, during her freshman year at Texas A&M.
Kyle Cobern, now 47, and Trasa Robertson, have been married for 17 years now.
Trasa Cobern has four sons – Brady Silas, Caden, Jaxon and McCrae – and she teaches middle school in Hurst, Texas.
Si Robertson’s new book, Si-Cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty’s Favorite Uncle will be available from today, September 3.
Duck Dynasty’s Uncle Si Robertson said in a recent interview with The Christian Post that he didn’t want to write a book about his life, because he felt that with having served in the military for 25 years, he hadn’t created enough memories with his family to share with his fans.
“I was in the military, so I told my wife that I was never there for the kids when they were growing up. And she said, ‘oh yeah you were. Let me go get a photo album.’ And she was showing me dressed as a bunny rabbit, rooster, and Santa Claus during Christmas time. Personally, I didn’t feel that I was there enough,” Si Robertson said.
But with pressure mounting against him, Si Robertson finally relented and agreed to write a book about his life.
“They just kept bothering me, so I said, OK.”
In his book, Si Robertson shares a spattering of stories about his childhood – skipping school to go fishing with his older brothers – and how he managed to earn A’s at Louisiana Tech after he skipped most of his classes during an entire semester.

Si Robertson’s mastery of storytelling runs throughout his descriptions of the Vietnam War and how he met his wife, Christine. The always-jovial Uncle Si also speaks candidly about the difficulties he and Christine have faced, and how God has blessed and sustained them throughout their 43 years of marriage. He also shares their unexpected blessing of having two children, Trasa (married Cobern) and Scott, and eight grandchildren.
Although he’s spoken for, the marriage proposals keep rolling in for Si Robertson. All the single ladies who envision themselves walking down the aisle with the elder duck hunter are shattered when Si Robertson breaks the disappointing news that he can’t marry them because his wife will get mad.
“I was at an event in Arkansas, and a woman walked up and was standing there, and I was waiting for her to hand me something to sign – a T-shirt, a hat or whatever. And she said, <<Well, I’m ready>>. And I looked up and I said, <<Ready for what?>>. <<Ready to marry you. I drove 450 miles here just to marry you>>. I told her we’ve got a slight problem here, lady. And she said, <<What’s that?>>. << I’m already married and my wife probably wouldn’t like me marrying you>>. <<You mean I drove 450 miles for nothing?>> I said, <<No. Isn’t that a T-shirt you’ve got hanging over your shoulder>>. <<Yeah>>. Well, I’ll sign it for you darlin’ that’s the best I can do for you,” he said.
According to Si Robertson, marriage is a union between two imperfect people who are destined to make mistakes. But at the end of the day, their love for each other and faith in Jesus Christ will bring them through every hardship and enrich the most joyous times of their lives.
“People have got to understand that you’ve got to learn to laugh at yourself when you make a mistake,” Si Robertson advised.
“Don’t get mad and fly off the handle, OK. We’re all human, and we make mistakes.”
“What I tell young couples that are getting married is: you’re going to have quarrels, and on some things, you’re just going to have to agree to disagree. And when you go to bed at night, kiss each other and tell each other that you love each other. Don’t go to bed mad. Life is too short. Keep it simple.”
Asked what he thinks about seeing his face on Duck Dynasty merchandise at various stores throughout the country, Si Robertson said it’s a humbling experience, but his nephew Alan thinks it’s a frightening and funny commentary about popular culture.
“It’s very humbling, number one,” Si Robertson stated.
“There’s a lot of kids who look-up to me, and that’s humbling. Because being human, I don’t want to fail them. But being human, I will. That’s why it’s so important to have your faith put in something that won’t fail you. And that means the son of God’s kingdom.”
However, Alan Robertson has a different take and joked about how ironic it is to see his uncle’s face surrounding him everywhere he goes inside a Walmart.
“It’s kind-of scary to me. You know, Si’s got a funny look about him, and to see him everywhere I turn around at Walmart, it makes me think, what kind of crazy world are we living in?”
Si Robertson’s wife, Christine, has yet to tell the media why she hasn’t appeared on Duck Dynasty.
Critics of the show speculate that Christine Robetson isn’t ready to come out from the behind the scenes and let the public get to know her.
There was some confusion about Si Robertson and Christine’s exact relationship until Jessica, Jep Robertson’s wife, posted a photo on her Twitter page with the caption: “Me, #Si & his sweet WIFE Christine @Mrs.Kay’s 65 bday party! So blessed to have such a large & close family.”
It was revealed in Willie Robertson’s book The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynasty that Uncle Si and Christine have two children, a son named Scott Robertson and a daughter named Trasa Robertson Cobern.
Scott Robertson currently serves in the US Army and has been deployed to Iraq several times. He and his wife Marsha Markert Robertson have three boys, Ethan and twins Lohan and Connor.

Trasa Cobern teaches social studies in Hurst, Texas. She and her husband have been married for 15 years and have four boys.
Duck Dynasty Season 4 is currently being filmed and will premiere on Wednesday, August 14.
Of interest, Si Robertson and the rest of the bearded Duck Dynasty family can be seen on Hallmark Father’s Day cards this year. They went on sale June 3 at Walmart stores nationwide.
If you’re planning to attend the Arkansas Outdoors Expo on July 20th and 21st this year at the Conway Expo Center in Conway, you’re in luck! This year’s show will feature a meet and greet and autograph session with Si Robertson.
Duck Dynasty’s fans finally found out about Si Robertson’s wife, Christine.
Christine Robertson does not appear in the show but Uncle Si posted a photo on Facebook of the couple together and he let everyone know that she had been his sweetheart for 43 years.
Uncle Si has two children with Christine, son Scott Robertson and daughter Trasa Robertson Cobern.
Trasa is married to Kyle Wayne Cobern, 46, and they have four sons together.

Si Robertson’s daughter, Trasa Cobern, 37, is a social studies teacher in Hurst, Texas, where she is living with her husband of 15 years and their four boys.
Trasa Cobern has short blonde hair and what appear to be big hazel eyes. She is pretty like any of the lovely ladies on the program.
