Why Uncle Si’s Wife of 47 Years Never Appeared On ‘Duck Dynasty’

It may come as a surprise to some, but crazy Uncle Si from of the popular A&E reality show Duck Dynasty is spoken for.

Unlike the rest of his family, he was never joined by a significant other on camera, but he has been married since 1971 to a woman who he adoringly calls Miss Christine.

During a behind the scenes interview with ABC News a few years ago, he revealed that he had to ask Miss Christine for her hand in marriage quite a few times.

I asked this woman to marry me at least 100 times. She finally said yes and hey, that’s the end of that story,” he said.

As any fan of the show, we have wondered why the woman who keeps Si in check wasn’t featured in the eleven season run! According to an interview in Us Weekly, Si revealed that Miss Christine has a “better sense” than his whole family for choosing not to appear on Duck Dynasty.

The real reason she has chosen to stay out of the limelight is the rigorous filming schedule.

“Sometimes we film 12 hours a day,” Si revealed. “And she’s just not healthy enough to go through the rigors of that. 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.”

Although he is arguably the most well-known Robertson, he doesn’t always like being the center of attention.

“Celebrity life is not all it’s cracked up to be!” he shared. “If I had a choice to go somewhere or stay home, I’d stay home. I’m a homebody. Christine’s the same.”

Si is also a romantic at heart. For the couple’s 43rd anniversary, they renewed their vows and he recorded an entire album dedicated to his “Smokin’ Hot Honey.” Take a listen to one of his songs below.
