Si Robertson has kept his immediate family out of the public eye, despite his skyrocketing fame. He’s admitted he wanted to shelter them from the stress of the limelight. Here’s the truth about Si Robertson’s wife.
Si Robertson’s Wife
Si Robertson’s wife has been the center of much speculation and curiosity for years. In a show so centered around family, it was always strange that we never met Si’s immediate relatives. At one point we met Godwin’s wife and daughter, Martin’s girlfriend turned wife, and even Mountain Man’s relatives. So why would we not meet Si’s wife after all this time?
Well, the answer is health. Apparently Si’s wife Christine isn’t as mobile and active as him. At 69 years old, Si Robertson is incredibly active for his age. Si still duck hunts, walks, bends, and runs. He still gets into shenanigans with his nephews, and he still speaks regularly. He even started a band with two other women and is touring. However, his wife Christine isn’t quite up for as much activity.
Si explained to Us Weekly, “I always told people, ‘She’s got better sense than the rest of us.’ But that ain’t the real reason. Sometimes we film 12 hours a day, and she’s just not healthy enough to go through the rigors of that.”
Fame And It’s Stress
Si also indulged that Christine isn’t disappointed with her private life. He explained, “But, ah, it ain’t no big deal. She wants no part of it anyway. She’s been married to me for 43 years. The last thing she needs is to watch us on a TV show.”
Si and his wife also aren’t pandering for more attention. He prefers the simple things in life to the glitz and glam of Hollywood. He said, “Celebrity life is not all it’s cracked up to be! If I had a choice to go somewhere or stay home, I’d stay home. I’m a homebody. Christine’s the same.”
Looks like Si Robertson’s wife has been happy all along. He’s been looking after her, and we’re sure she enjoys watching her man’s silly antics on television.
