In an interview with Closer Weekly, Duck Dynasty‘s Missy Robertson reveals she suffered a miscarriage before having daughter Mia.
Missy Robertson told the publication that at age 30 she suffered a miscarriage in 2002, after giving birth to her sons, Reed (now 18) and Cole (now 16).
“I was about eight to 10 weeks along when I miscarried, just enough time to be excited about it and start telling everyone,” the reality star said.

Missy Robertson explained the heartbreaking procedure: “I’d heard of tubal pregnancies for years, but didn’t really understand the mental anguish of actually having to go in and have someone remove what could’ve been your child. It was extremely difficult, and there was a lot of pain and bleeding.”
Jase and Missy Robertson told Closer Weekly they coped with the tragedy through “a lot of prayer and a lot of family.”
Three months after the miscarriage, Missy Robertson became pregnant again with their daughter Mia, now age 11.

Duck Dynasty‘s Missy Robertson wrote on her Facebook page: „Jim Dillard, a professional fisherman and friend, has decided to raffle off his boat and donate the proceeds to the Mia Moo Fund! Thanks, Jim! So many cleft kids and families need our help.
The Mia Moo Fund organization began in 2014 after Mia Robertson, daughter of Duck Dynasty’s Jase and Missy Robertson, completed surgery for her cleft palate.
Keep in mind that you do not have to be a Duck Dynasty member to be a generous person who gives to an important cause. If you have an old boat that you no longer use, you can donate it to a worthy cause and help raise money for various associations around the country.
All you have to do is contact an organization that accepts boat donations and they will get you started. You should also contact the charity if you have any questions about boat donation. As an added bonus, you will receive a tax deduction in exchange for your generosity.
Duck Dynasty’s Jase and Missy Robertson are visiting Washington D.C. with their three children, Mia, Reed and Cole.

Missy Robertson wrote on her Facebook page: “We’re in Washington, D.C., where I’ve wanted to bring the kids for years, goofing off, learning a lot and having a few <<selahs>>, as Jase says. It truly is humbling to see our country’s history. We were spotted at the changing of the guard and we’re honored to take a picture with the Honor Guard. Now, onto the Nationals game to watch Adam.”
Duck Dynasty’s Reed Robertson graduated from Ouachita Christian School in Monroe, Louisiana, his mother announced on Facebook.

Missy Robertson wrote on her Facebook page: „We spent last night celebrating with Reed, his classmates and families. I couldn’t be more proud of the decisions he’s made about attending a Christian college and trying to live a pure life for Jesus. There will always be persecution for godly choices (which he is already experiencing), but it only solidifies these choices as what is best for God’s kingdom (Matt. 5:11-12). To all those <<kids>> out there who are doing the same, Godspeed! Stand in your faith! You will be blessed.”
Reed Robertson was born on January 24, 1995. H is the eldest child and first son of Jase and Missy Robertson.
Duck Dynasty’s Jase Robertson shares his life’s experiences in hunting, evangelism, marriage and parenting in his new book, Good Call: Reflections on Faith, Family, and Fowl.
Jase Robertson maintains the humorous approach he’s known for as he talks about how he managed to save his virginity until marriage, and the bag of pot a young man brought to a Bible study that he and his wife, Missy, hosted at their first home.

In the book,Jase Robertson is open about the anger he felt toward his father, Phil Robertson, who had abandoned him and his two brothers. He also talks about how the birth of his daughter, Mia, has enabled him and Missy to help other parents who have a child born with a cleft lip and soft palate.
Among the stories Jase shares in a chapter about “facial profiling” happened in an airport en route to speak to a Christian men’s group in Montana. Since the event was being held right after hunting season, his beard was in “full bloom”. After receiving suspicious looks and a pat-down from Homeland Security, he accidentally bumped into a woman who then screamed when she turned around and looked at him.
When he finally reached his gate and sat down, a young boy asked him for an autograph and he logically assumed the boy recognized him from Duck Dynasty. After receiving the autograph, the boy asked Jase Robertson if he could ask him a question.
“Sure, buddy,” Jase Robertson said.
“Ask me anything you want.”
The boy replied: “How much does Geico pay y’all?”
“Wait a minute,” Jase Robertson said.
“I’m not a caveman. I’m Jase the Duckman. You know, from <<Duck Dynasty>>. Quack, quack?”
“It didn’t take me long to realize the boy had no idea what I was talking about,” he added.

Jase and Missy Robertson reveal they endured the challenge of their lives when their daughter Mia, now 10, was born with a cleft lip and palate.
Mia Robertson is their youngest child – joining big brothers Reed, now 18, and Cole, 16 – faced more than just cosmetic problems, and has had five vital surgeries so far.
In an extensive interview for the new issue of Us Weekly, Jase Robertson, 44, and Missy Robertson, 43, reveal that raising a bright, gifted child with special needs has transformed and enriched their lives forever.
Duck Dynasty’s Missy Robertson celebrated her 43rd birthday on Tuesday, April 22 – the same day as her brother-in-law and Duck Commander CEO, Willie Robertson.
Missy Robertson spent her birthday watching son Reed and nephew John Luke (Willie and Korie Robertson’s son) play in tennis regionals.
She wrote on her Facebook page: “Beautiful day for a birthday watching Reed and John Luke play in tennis regionals. Thank you, everybody, for so many sweet wishes! I am blessed beyond measure.”

After marrying Jase Robertson in 1991, and now busy raising another generation of Robertsons, Missy West learned early on that she needed to step up her game.
With help from her mother-in-law, Miss Kay, Missy Robertson transitioned into the lifestyle of a large family easily. She also learned that being a Robertson meant helping with the family business.
However, after working for Duck Commander for many years, Missy Robertson is now able to devote much of her time to her real passion of vocal music, both singing and volunteering as a music teacher at her children’s school.
Missy Robertson also handles her own family’s many activities and tries her best to keep 44-year-old Jase in line.
Jase and Missy Robertson have been married for more than 22 years and have three children: Reed, Cole, and Mia.
Duck Dynasty’s Mia Robertson, the 10-year-old daughter of Jase and Missy Robertson, was born with a cleft lip and palate.
Missy and Jase Robertson recently launched the Mia Moo Fund, whose slogan is “Because Every Kid Deserves A Smile,” to raise awareness and help children with similar problems.
Missy Robertson revealed the story of Mia’s cleft lip and palate on the fund website:
“Jase & I learned that Mia had a cleft lip and possible cleft palate at 31 weeks gestation, thanks to a 4-D ultrasound. We were able to prepare ourselves and our boys, as best as we knew how, for a few weeks before she was born at 37 weeks gestation.
Mia Elaine Robertson was born on September 12, 2003, with a bilateral cleft lip and palate & it was through a mutual friend, we met a family in our area who had a son born with this same condition just a few months before Mia. This family lead us to the International Craniofacial Institute in Dallas, Texas, where we traveled when Mia was 17 days old. They checked her from head to toe and fitted her with a palatal appliance in order to give a “fake roof” to her mouth.
Ten-year-old Mia Robertson was born with a cleft lip and palate
This helped tremendously in the feeding process as it aided in allowing her milk to travel down her throat instead of out her nose. We did our best to fatten her up over the next few weeks in order to get her healthy enough for her first surgery, correction of the cleft lip. At 3 months old, Mia underwent her first corrective surgery. Jase and I were prepared to physically take care of our daughter, but we were not prepared emotionally as to how different she would look after this surgery. We had fallen in love with that sweet face for 3 months and were not prepared for the swelling and stitches that we saw in the recovery room. It was a very emotional time.
Our baby looked so different, and we actually wondered if it would have been better if we had chosen not to put her through the surgery. In just a couple of days, the swelling diminished entirely, and we soon realized that this indeed was the best thing to do for our child. I try to help parents in this regard so they do not experience the same trauma that we did. Mia healed quickly, and we continued to prepare her for the next surgery. She had palate correction surgery at 7 months old. After having her palatal appliance cleaned 3-5 times a day for 7 months, Mia now had her own natural palate. She was a happy baby who loved her mama and hardly ever wanted to be away from me. This is extremely common with babies who need so much medical attention. No worries. I took her to work with me at Duck Commander, and she played on the floor and with her Mamaw Kay while we worked…”
Duck Dynasty Season 5 finale just aired on Wednesday, March 26, leaving its fans wanting confirmation about Season 6.
Jase and Missy Robertson spoke to People magazine about their family, this past season and what lies ahead.
With Phil Robertson controversy behind them, the Louisiana family are beginning to film next season of the show.
Duck Dynasty reality show will be continued with Season 6 this fall
“We’re going to keep doing what we do,” says Jase.
“People will have their opinions about us, but we’re just trying to do the right thing. We’re really thankful to the people who have supported us through everything. We have met a lot of great people.”
Jase and Missy Robertson say that Duck Dynasty has a higher purpose than just entertainment.
“There are a lot of people with problems out there,” says Jase Robertson. “Sometimes, we’ll meet some of them who’ll say <<I’m so glad your show is on, because despite my lowest moments, I have something to chuckle about. We’re a healthy distraction, you know. That’s what we want to be.”
It does not appear that a premiere date for Duck Dynasty Season 6 has been made official yet, but based on past history it would seem fans can likely expect new episodes come this fall.
After Duck Dynasty’s Mia Robertson underwent her recent facial cleft surgery, the Robertson family has started a non-profit organization to help raise awareness and to help fund research for children with cleft lips and palates.
Missy and Jase Robertson’s daughter had surgery on January 3, and is recovering speedily.

Mia Robertson, now 11, was born with a facial cleft, and had her first surgery when she was just three months old. Cleft lips and palates form in the womb, resulting in a gap in the upper lip or the roof of the mouth because the tissue did not fully form during early pregnancy.
Jase and Missy Robertson started the Mia Moo Fund, a non-profit organization to help raise awareness and fund research for causes and treatments of cleft lips and palates.
Wednesday’s Duck Dynasty Season 5 finale will center on Mia Robertson’s journey with a facial cleft and highlight how her family has rallied around her in loving support and prayer.
Duck Dynasty’s Jase and Missy Robertson have set up The Mia Moo Fund, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to raising awareness and funds towards research, treatments and causes of cleft lip & palate.
Mia Robertson, Jase and Missy’s little daughter, was born with cleft lip and palate.
Three months ago, Mia Robertson, 10, underwent her latest cleft lip and palate surgery, and now her famous parents want to launch a campaign to help other children around the world get medical treatment for this condition.

The Mia Moo Fund website explained: “The organization began in 2014 after Mia Robertson, daughter of Jase and Missy Robertson, completed surgery for her cleft lip / palate. As Mia entered surgery, thousands of supportive fans tweeted, blogged and talked about how strong and beautiful she was. It was both empowering and inspiring. It has since become our mission to bring this type of support and love to each and every child that suffers from cleft lip and palate. These children face difficulties that are hard to comprehend, but with your support, the impossible can be achieved.”
Mia Robertson’s mother, Missy, has announced on her Faccebook page: „I am happy, excited, humbled and proud to introduce you to the Mia Moo Fund! Our family wants to help as many kids as possible who have been affected by cleft lip/palate. Follow us and become a part. And check out our web page for so much more at www.miamoo.org. Together, we can give these kids a bright future. In the words of Mia, <<Let’s do this!>>.”
Duck Dynasty ’s Jase and Missy Robertson will serve as the keynote speakers and entertainers at the next month’s Children’s Home of Lubbock 60th anniversary celebration gala in Texas.
United President Robert Taylor said the partnership between the organizations is based on a mutual faith-based founding and desire to serve others. As a result, United will be the title sponsor of The Children’s Home “Foster Our Future” gala on April 11.
Tom Spoonts, vice president for development at The Children’s Home, said he used family ties to entice Jase and Missy Robertson to visit Lubbock.

Gala attendees will hear Jase and Missy Robertsons talk about their story and parenting experiences as well as some singing and other forms of entertainment. The couple’s children may also make an appearance.
The Children’s Home of Lubbock opened April 18, 1954, and has touched an estimated 6,000 children in Lubbock.
The organization also works with about 50 foster families to provide care for all children who come to them in need. On any given day, The Children’s Home has an average of 145 children in its care.
Tickets for the gala are in short supply already but can be purchased by calling The Children’s Home at (806) 762-0481(806) 762-0481, ext. 213. Tables of 10 are $1,500, and individual seats cost $125. The event will take place at the Overton Hotel and Conference Center in Lubbock at 7 p.m. Friday, April 11.

The latest episode of Duck Dynasty showed the Robertson family helping Jep to build out a playhouse.
“Basically I messed up big time,” admitted Jep Robertson.
“I promised Jessica this playhouse would be ready for the kids [and it’s not].”
When Jep Robertson told his brother Jase he would be hiring builders to assemble the playhouse, Jase said he could get the job done in one day.
“All men should be able to build and assemble,” said Jase Robertson.
“As men, we’re holding up our end of the bargain. Be a man, build something, anything.”

While Jase seemed up for the challenge, Jep was a bit loopy from the pain medication he was taking for an arm injury.
“We’ll build it while you sleep it off and we’ll give you all the credit it,” Jase offered.
But when Jep came to and saw what his brother had created he realized he was going to be in a lot of trouble.
“Jessica is not going to like this,” Jep Robertson said as he saw the playhouse had no slides or windows and looked like it would fall apart at any second.
“Anybody can call and order some prefab playhouse,” said Jase.
“Forts are for kids who want to defend themselves from other neighborhood kids. The kids who play in playhouses, they’re just looking for other places to have snack.”
As soon as Jessica saw the strange structure, she asked her husband: “Jep, I thought you were here, what were you doing this whole time? This is not what we talked about.”
“Don’t freak out, I got a plan B,” answered Jep.
“You’re going to take another nap?” snapped Jessica.
In the end, Jep hired builders to make a playhouse and although his father Phil called it a “yuppie move”, even he had to admit it was “better than letting his kids play in that death trap Jase built”.
In this week’s episode of Duck Dynasty, Si Robertson’s coworkers at the Duck Commander warehouse learned some new and disgusting habits from the Vietnam War veteran.
Uncle Si’s nephew, Jase Robertson, commented on throwing away the hardened drop of mustard that sits over the dispenser. Like most people, he finds that part to be gross.
Not Uncle Si though who says his life motto is “waste not, want to”.
“It tastes good and it’s chewy,” Si Robertson explained while disgusting all of his coworkers who were avoiding doing work.
But Willie Robertson found a way to motivate his crew: ice cream.
“As CEO, I’ve learned that motivating people is hard,” he said.

So in order to get the Duck Commander crew working again, Willie Robertson bought a soft serve ice cream place.
Unfortunately for Willie, his tactics didn’t work because they were “manipulative” according to Jase.
Instead, Jase Robertson updated a four wheeler that he bought without permissions on his corporate card.
While Willie disciplined his brother on abusing his position at Duck Commander, he couldn’t deny Jase’s idea worked.
“When I was growing up, my parents taught me the value of hard work and when you’re running a business it’s easy to get caught up in trying to make sure everyone is working hard all the time,” said Willie Robertson.
“What I’ve learned is that life can’t be all about work,” he continued.
“Sometimes the best way to get people to work hard, is to let them have a little fun first.”
“Because even though hard work is important, everybody deserves a little fun. even if your definition of fun is sending your grown son little smiley faces and hearts even stinking minute,” Willie Robertson concluded.
On the last episode of Duck Dynasty, Willie and Jase Robertson argue over an old GI Joe toy.
This leads them into a debate over who would make a better soldier.

To settle the score, Willie and Jase head out to the woods with their friends and children for a paintball match, but the game is cut short when Uncle Si Robertson gets stuck in a marsh and needs to be rescued.

Last night’s episode of Duck Dynasty showed how Willie and Jase Robertson settled their beef in the only way a redneck knows how.
“As an older brother, Jase has always acted like he’s better at everything,” complained Willie Robertson.
“One time he even told me he was better at flipping channels. But this time Jase has bitten off more than he can chew.”
“The whole town? You don’t make the best burger in the family!” Jase Robertson told his younger brother Willie.
“I make better burgers than you.”
At first, the two asked Uncle Si Robertson to settle the feud but Si was no help. When asked if he preferred Willie’s burgers to Jase’s, Si Robertson answered he preferred Phil’s first and then Miss Kay’s.
“I have to eat one from both of you,” said Si Robertson.
“In a burger-eating competition, there’s no question Willie is your man but this is a burger-making competition,” said a confident Jase Robertson.
“Willie is going down. I’m like the redneck Emeril Lagasse.”
While the two competitors made their way to the grocery store to pick up ingredients, youngest brother Jep Robertson got roped into helping his father get rid of his unwanted junk.
“Around here, stuff tends to pile up,” said Phil Robertson.
Willie and Jase Robertson settle beef in redneck style
“A whole lot of what most people would characterize as junk.”
When Jep Robertson showed up looking for old newspapers for his wife Jessica to use in an arts and crafts project, his father Phil capitalized on the situation.
“When my son comes rolling in, I have to seize upon the opportunity,” explained Phil Robertson.
“Next thing you know, the pile’s not there anymore.”
But Jep Robertson wasn’t falling for his father’s old tricks that easily.
Phil Robertson tried to unload old phonebooks and other paper goods on his son, but Jep stayed true to his mission and only accepted the paper.
“I’ve seen my dad try to set this kind of trap before,” Jep Robertson said.
“I came up for a few stacks of newspaper and that’s what I’m going to leave with.”
But it wasn’t long before Phil Robertson had Jep lugging a pick up truck full of junk to the recycling center.
It wasn’t until Jep Robertson had almost finished unloading the old newspapers, did Phil reveal they were covered in rat pee.
“Subdivision people, [rat pee] runs through them like sauce in a cat,” Phil Robertson said as he warned Jep to wash his hands well after touching the paper.
“Most dads would just ask for their sons help,” Jep Robertson said.
“My dad is different. But most fathers don’t have thousands of newspapers soaked with rat pee. Rat pee in my beard, thanks dad.”
Back at the Duck Commander warehouse, no duck calls were being made per usual and the boys began their cook off.
The competition got serious when Willie Robertson asked to borrow Jase’s pan.
“[Willie] wants to share [a pan] in a burger cook off?” a bewildered Jase Robertson asked.
“As competitive as Willie is, the man doesn’t understand competition.”
“Would Batman give the Penguin his bat mobile? Would I give a duck a bulletproof vest? Of course not!”
In the end, the two brothers only proved that the burger making business is better left to Phil and Miss Kay. Even Duck Commander employee and food enthusiast John Godwin couldn’t stomach their patties.
