In a recent interview with In Touch magazine, Duck Dynasty’s Si Robertson opens up about why his family stays out of the limelight.
Uncle Si, who is happily married to Christine Robertson since 1971, told the publication: “One woman’s got my heart. Her name is Miss Christine. We’ve been married for 43 years.”
Si and Christine Robertson have who have two children together – Trasa Cobern and Scott Merritt Robertson – and eight grandkids.
However, neither his wife nor the kids have appeared on Duck Dynasty show.
Si Robertson, 66, also revealed that Christine could be on the show, but “she’s got better sense than all the rest of us”.
“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!” he told the publication.
Si Robertson said he asked Christine Raney to marry him “at least 100 times” but she resisted because doctors told her she couldn’t have kids.
The Duck Dynasty star explained: “I said, <<Hey, the doctors don’t have the final word. I believe in a higher power>>.
“And I got two miracle babies who gave me four grandsons each.”

Si Merritt “Si” Robertson is Duck Commander Phil’s younger brother, best friend, and partner in crime.
Born on April 27, 1948, Si Robertson has a very specific job at the Duck Commander workshop, fashioning the reeds that are inserted in every patented duck call. It’s a pretty easy job, made needlessly difficult by the fact that Si Robertson can never seem to stay on task.

A Vietnam War veteran, Uncle Si Robertson often shares his war stories with the guys in reality show Duck Dynasty, which usually gets the crew behind schedule, much to his nephew Willie’s dismay.
Si Robertson’s most famous story is that while serving overseas, his mother sent him a blue mug. Thirty years later it’s still hanging from his back pocket and he continues to only drink from this cup, every day.
Uncle Si is married to Christine for many many years and they have together two children: a daughter, Trasa Cobern Robertson, and a son, Scott Robertson. Christine, Trasa and Scott are not featured in the reality show.
