"Jep & Lily Lulu playing with our new pup Gizmo," Jessica Robertson Tweeted alongside a photo of her husband and their 11-year-old daughter Lily cooing at the fluffy white pup.

Phil Robertson has been reinstated by A&E after a brief suspension for making anti-gay remarks, but the Duck Dynasty patriarch is caught up in a new controversy thanks to a video in which he advises men to marry girls as young as 15.
The footage, which surfaced Monday on YouTube, is said to be from a 2009 Georgia Sportsmen's Ministry event. In it, Robertson offers what he calls "river rat counseling," and warns men not to marry girls who are out of their teens.
"Look, you wait 'til they get to be 20 years old, the only picking that's going to take place is your pocket," he says. "You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16. They'll pick your ducks. You need to check with mom and dad about that, of course."

Duck Dynasty will resume filming in the new year – with Phil Robertson.
A&E Networks – which had earlier suspended the family's patriarch after he expressed anti-gay beliefs and made statements about pre-Civil War African-Americans in an interview with GQ magazine – released a statement Friday saying that it has decided to resume filming later this spring "with the entire Robertson family."
Revealing that they had spoken to the family, A&E said that while they do not share Robertson's views, "Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man's views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family … a family that America has come to love."
