While studying, she has also found herself a job: ”I work at a coffee shop most days, so my school schedule revolves around that if I work from 7:15-1:30, then I would go straight from work to my math tutor’s house, work for a while, then to a coffee shop to finish the rest of my classes.”
Her father, Willie, is a businessman, TV personality, and CEO of the “Duck Commander” company. An avid and passionate hunter, grandfather Phil invented the Duck Commander, and launched the company that sells duck calls and turkey-hunting merchandise. Utilizing his experience and knowledge, Willie turned the company into a multi-million dollar business. Bella’s mother Korie, a Harding University graduate, came into the spotlight starring in the family reality show.
Bella has five siblings: John Luke, Sadie, Will, Rowdy, and Rebecca, three of whom are adopted. Upon finishing his studies, John Luke shifted his focus from “Duck Dynasty” to writing, and produced the series entitled “Be Your Own Duck Commander”, then in 2016, he published his second book entitled “Young and Beardless: The Search for God, Purpose and a Meaningful Life”.
Sadie, her biological sister, is also a YouTuber, with her own channel entitled “Sadie Robertson”, which currently counts 500,000 followers.
Her parents adopted Will when he was just a couple of weeks old; he’s known as a shy and private individual, compared to his other siblings, mainly because he rarely appeared in the reality show.
Rebecca is the second child, even though she was not legally adopted – she initially came to the family as a foster, and simply stayed with the family, Korie saying “She came to us when she was 16 as an exchange student from Taiwan, and didn’t speak a word of English. I thought, ‘Oh, no, I’ve got like four little kids, like two to six, and now I’ve got a 16-year-old who doesn’t speak English; what am I gonna do?” The latest addition to the family is Rowdy, who was adopted at 13-years-old. In an interview, Korie said:” We are always open to adoption. We feel like adoption has blessed our family in so many ways. And we are so thankful for our kids both biological and adopted. So ‘never say never.’ That’s for sure.”
