Jep and Jessica Robertson Talk Duck Dynasty Patriarch Phil's Love for Their New African-American Baby, Say 'We Laugh About' How His Words on Race Were 'Misconstrued'

Jep and Jessica Robertson couldn't be happier about welcoming their new addition, adopted son Jules Augustus "Gus" Robertson, and tell PEOPLE Now that family patriarch Phil Robertson feels exactly the same way.

After introducing Gus during the premiere of their spin-off show Jep and Jessica: Growing the Dynasty, the Duck Dynasty couple says that – despite Phil's public history of controversial comments on race and a rush of media scrutiny last week about his reaction to having an African-American grandson – Phil reacted with nothing but love for Gus.

"We've never known him to say anything against any race at all, it doesn't matter who it is," Jessica says. "We laugh about it as a family, actually, because we all know Phil and Kay are. They're the most loving family and the most giving family."

Phil Robertson Tells Men to Marry Underage Girls in Newly Unearthed Video

Originally posted 12/31/2013 09:50AM

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."
