Duck Dynasty's Willie and Korie Robertson are in the process of adopting a son, according to Korie's Instagram.
"We are excited to be in the process of adopting a new son! He's been with us since May, but we wanted some privacy and time for him and our family to bond before telling the world (It's a bit of an adjustment coming into this big, crazy family, ha :-))," Korie wrote of the 13-year-old.
"He's amazing, and we are all so thrilled to have another kid around the house. Couldn't keep the good news to ourselves any longer! We appreciate your prayers and support for our family! Love, The Robertson's."
Their sixth addition reflects the Robertsons' heart for adoption.
"We always wanted to adopt, and when the opportunity opened up, we did it to help change a child's life," Willie told Show Hope. "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."
The Robertsons adopted Willie Jr. when he was just 5 weeks old, according to People.
"If we're able to make even one family consider adoption, we'll do it," Willie told People. "I don't know where his life would have been—I won't say it would have been bad—but he probably wouldn't have been with a father if we hadn't adopted him. There are so many kids out there who need help, and it doesn't matter what age, color, sex they are."
Fans are thrilled over the adoption news:
"Congratulations! He's going to be a wonderful addition to the family! He's going to make a lovely Robertson!" wrote one fan.
Another chimed in: "Congratulations! God is so Amazing! What a little cutie."
