Jep Robertson, the youngest son of the TV show’s patriarch Phil Robertson, and his wife Jessica have welcomed a new dog to their family.
“Jep & Lily Lulu playing with our new pup Gizmo,” Jessica Robertson Tweeted alongside a photo of her husband and their 11-year-old daughter Lily cooing at the fluffy white pup.
Their new addition comes on the heels of controversy for the family, who are getting back to business after the A&E network temporarily suspended Phil Robertson last month over anti-gay and racist comments.
Besides, the tiny doggy couldn’t have come at a better time for the duck-hunting family. On Friday, Jessica shared that they were thinking of a close family member who was undergoing surgery.
“Lifting up our sweet Mia this morning in prayer. She’s having major surgery this morning, please keep her & Jase & Missy in your prayers,” she Tweeted of the daughter of brother-in-law Jase and his wife Missy.
