Before Willie and Korie Robertson took the Duck Commander to a whole new level, it was Phil and Kay who handled most of the things at the home base. The mother of Alan, Jase, Willie, and Jep Robertson, Kay Robertson is often credited for the change fans have seen in Phil Robertson. Commonly referred to as Miss Kay, Kay has stuck by her husband’s side since her early teens. And, at 70, Kay has been through all the ups and downs of a marriage that one could think of. Despite all her struggles and dark days, Kay raised the next generation of Robertsons and is still an integral part of the family. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Kay Robertson.
Early life, Phil Robertson, and Marriage:
Marsha Kay Carroway Robertson was born on the 21st of December, 1950. Born and raised in West Monroe, Louisiana, little is known about Kay’s early life and the reality star has kept her silence on the details. Kay was a cheerleader and a debutante during her high school years. Kay met Phil while still in high school and the pair began dating in 1964. The pair tied the knot after two years. Many sources claim that Kay was 16 when the pair first tied the knot and gave birth to her first child, Alan Robertson when she was 17. The pair’s second child Jase Robertson was born on the 16th of August, 1969, and was followed by Willie Robertson who was born on the 22nd of April, 1972. The pair’s youngest son, Jep Robertson, was born on the 28th of May, 1978.
Struggles, Duck Commander, and other things:
When Phil decided to start up Duck Commander, Kay supported her husband wholeheartedly and the pair soon opened their doors to duck hunters across Louisianna. And while the business prospered over the years, Kay’s personal life was far from ideal. She struggled to keep up with Phil’s antics, over the years and fell back on faith to help her through a tough time in their marriage. Kay believes that her faith in Christ has helped her marriage and has changed Phil for the better.
“Christ has meant everything to our marriage. It was my commitment to Christ and the words from my grandmother that made me stick with Phil when there wasn’t much to hold on to. How has Phil changed? Do you have a year to hear about it? His love for the outdoors, his pioneer spirit, and his quest for adventure has not changed. But his heart has been turned inside out. He’s a new man in every way that involves relationships.”
Cooking, family, and other things:
Apart from being the matriarch of the Robertson household, Kay is also an excellent hand in the kitchen. The reality star who is best known for her appearances in the TV series Duck Dynasty is just as good at cooking ducks as her husband is in hunting them.
As a young kid, Kay spent most of her early life with her grandmother and it was her grandmother who first taught Kay the ins and outs of a kitchen. Now, Kay loves to cook and has even roped Phil into cooking.
“My Nannie always seemed to be cooking in the kitchen. If someone was sick or had a death in the family, Nannie was the first one to take a comforting dish of food to them. Now as I pass my love of cooking down to my grandchildren, I make sure to wrap our cooking in my unconditional love for them.”
