Duck Dynasty‘s Robertson family is full of characters. Willie wears a ridiculously big bandana and appears to run a multi-million dollar company from a tiny wood-panelled office in the back of a warehouse. Jase can be thrown completely off his day if he sees a frog in a pond. And Phil can preach the gospel of not becoming a yuppie like no one’s business. But, in this family of huge personalities, one Robertson still stands out: Uncle Si.
Si is many things. He is Phil’s brother and Willie, Jase, Jep, and Alan’s uncle. He’s also Great Uncle to all their kids. He’s the chief reed cutter in the duck call room as well as the head beaver hunter (and munitions expert). Si’s a vietnam veteran, and he’s the best advertisement for sweet tea and blue plastic cups in prime time history.
UPDATE: We’ve rounded up two more great pics of Silas and Christine. One is recent and the other is an absolute can’t miss from 1993! Check ‘em out here.
But, although you wouldn’t know it from watching the show, Si has at least one more very important role: husband. That’s right, Si’s married to Christine Robertson, and has been for many years. This Fall, Jase mentioned Christine in response to a question that a fan posted to his twitter account, and just last week Jep’s wife, Jessica posted the pic below. Her caption read:
Me, #Si & his sweet WIFE Christine @Mrs.Kay’s 65 bday party! So blessed to have such a large & close family.
So, it’s true! This is the woman who fills up the tea jug for him every morning and makes sure Si has a clean blue cup to carry with him through the day!
She’s married to Si. Let that sink in. What I wouldn’t give to be a fly on that wall?! This must be one special lady! Let’s hope she decides to come out from behind the scenes and let us get to know her a bit.
