Sadie Robertson, who grew up right before America’s eyes on her family’s reality show “Duck Dynasty,” is just five weeks away from giving birth to her first child. In a new interview, the 23 year-old addressed the possibility of letting cameras in the room to film her giving birth.
Sadie sat down with Entertainment Tonight along with her parents, Korie and Willie Robertson, to talk about their new Facebook Watch series “At Home With the Robertsons.” In this interview, Sadie said that while it has not yet been discussed whether or not filming will take place while she gives birth, she is not necessarily opposed to it.
“If I had cameras, maybe that would help me do better,” Sadie said. “I’d feel the pressure and look a little more decent.”
Sadie went on to acknowledge that it’s likely not possible to have cameras in the delivery room because of COVID-19 protocols anyway. Regardless, she is very ready to give birth to her baby girl.
“I’m so ready,” she said. “I know currently I have a little booty in my rib cage, so I’m ready for her to be [out] in the real world. I can’t wait.”
Meanwhile, Willie and Korie are excited to welcome their first granddaughter, as they are already grandparents to two boys.
“Well, we’re getting better at it,” Willie confessed, referring to being a grandparent. “We’re all kind of close. We hang out together, and it’s been really fun, just in the whole process and running around with grandkids, and it’s fixing to double.”
“There’s a lot happening but we love being grandparents,” Korie added. “It’s so much fun and all of them live close to us. So, we get to spend a lot of time [together]. They get to spend the night at our house … and it’s a lot of fun.”
The three of them also talked about their new show, which will involve them inviting celebrity guests into their Louisiana home to have open discussions on a variety of issues.
“We’ve had a little time off since Duck Dynasty, which has been nice. We’re just kind of waiting for something that we wanted to do, but more with a purpose,” Willie said. “So when this idea came along, we thought, man, this would be great, because we feel like that what our country needs now more than ever is just to sit down and talk. And we thought, ‘Let’s just invite people into our homes and sit down and talk.’ There’s a lot of heavy issues out there, and seems like there’s a lot of disagreement and arguing and fighting. So, we want to try to see if we can change that a little bit.”
Korie added that they are not afraid to delve into sensitive issues.
“We’ve involved all of our family and we’ve talked about issues that are very personal to our family,” she said. “I don’t think we even knew we were going to go there that far. And then you get in this conversation and, yeah, there’s something really special about just sitting across the table from somebody and learning and hearing and being open.”
“But one thing that I think has been really fun and special is just the friendships we made through this. We’ve done this as a show and these celebrity guests have come in and you’re like, ‘Oh, we’re going to spend a day with them.’ And then we end up there staying after we get done filming and hanging out and having dinner,” Korie added. “Everyone stayed after for dinner. … We love having friends that maybe just think a little different than us because I think that it’s kind of opened your mind to other people and what they’re going through in life.”
