Willie Alexander Robertson has been with the Robertson family ever since he was two weeks old. The youngest son of the family, Alexander was adopted by the Robertsons much like his elder sister, Rebecca Robertson. Even though the Robertsons have been candid about how they didn’t have enough money to adopt Alexander, they wanted to make sure that he had a family he deserved. Despite the family struggles, Willie and Korie ended up adopting Alexander, and he is one of their own. Despite the obvious differences in the family heritage and culture, Alexander feels at home with the Robertsons and it is the only home he has known. So, for this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Willie Alexander Robertson.
Not much is known about Alexander’s early life. He was born in 2001 and was adopted by Willie and Korie Anderson when he was just five weeks old.
An African-American by birth, Willie knew he was different from a very young age. Alexander recalls the moment when he first found out that he was bi-racial and how it finally explained why he was so tan. But despite his racial identity, Alexander has always been at home with the Robertsons. Something that the star is quick to admit.
“First of all, it’s awesome. I wouldn’t be where I’m at today for sure, because I don’t know where I would be right now. But other than that, it’s brought me a lot closer to Jesus and it’s brought up my maturity a lot.”
He also admitted that while he often had fights with his siblings, particularly Sadie, during his early years, they have long graduated from being kids and are best of friends. He graduated from high school in 2020 alongside his sister Bella and brother, Rowdy.
Growing up in a famous family:
When Duck Dynasty began in 2012, Alexander was just nine-years-old. He went by the nickname ‘Little Will’ and would often pop up in episodes here and there. Over the years, Little Will has been seen in a fair share of episodes and has grown leaps and bounds in the five years Duck Dynasty was live on TV. Fast forward to 2020, and Little Will is no longer little but still retains the same charm and humor as he did when he first made an appearance on the series. Little Will also made an appearance on the family podcast and revealed what it was like for him to grow up in a famous family.
“It has gotten a lot harder just walking around places because you just walk even in like a gas station or the movie theaters and people are like, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s Willie Robertson’s son!’ I remember we were at Sam’s Club and I walked past a check out lane and I saw a Chia Pet, but it was dad!”
Despite all the family struggles, Willie and Korie Robertson are glad to have adopted Little Will and feel proud that they were able to give him a home and a place to belong.
