Phil Robertson is a proud man. He loves his family and he’s protective of them. However, when Jase was born, he wasn’t the same man he is today and he wasn’t quite as excited as you might imagine. That’s why Si Robertson stepped up and named the baby boy.
Phil Robertson’s Rocky Past
Phil Robertson had a rocky past. Most Duck Dynasty fans know that there was about a ten year period in Phil and Kay’s marriage where Phil was not a Godly man. In his own words, he,” was a scumbag and a heathen.” He also recalled, “I ran Miss Kay off, and Al was there. I think Jase was too, a little baby. I was like getting high, getting drunk, and getting laid. Pretty well in that order.”
When Miss Kay became pregnant, Phil was in the thick of his sinful ways. Jase told Duck Commander that, “Si went to the river to tell Phil that Kay was having a baby. I’ve always heard that Phil’s response was something to the effect of, ‘What do you want me to do about it?'”
Si Robertson has always had his brother’s back and he knew the baby would need a name. He asked Phil what he should name the baby. Phil responded, “Name him after you.” Jase explained, “So I was given the name Jason Silas Robertson. Maybe that’s why Si and I love to argue so much. My dad called me ‘Jase’ about half the time, and somewhere through the years the name stuck.” It’s crazy to think that Si actually named Jase, although Phil did ultimately give him his nickname.
Perhaps missing the birth of his own child was a sort of awakening. However, things got even worse before they got better. Phil recalled, “I just decided to follow him, when I heard that he in fact, was God in flesh.” He added, “It took the blood of God to remove my sex drugs and rock n’roll lifestyle… I’m sitting there and listening, and thinking ‘man that was a mighty kind thing to do for a scum bag like me.’”
We’re so glad Phil saw the light and we’re so tickled knowing that Si Robertson named Jase after himself. What do you think of this wild Duck Dynasty story?
