The dynasty continues! Duck Dynasty's Jep and Jessica Robertson have adopted a baby boy. The married couple introduced their new son, Jules Augustus, on the Wednesday, January 20, series premiere of their show Jep & Jessica: Growing the Dynasty.

The A&E show has an eight-episode run and will follow the couple as they finalize the adoption process. 

Following the premiere, Jep posted a photo with the family's newest addition, writing, "Thanks for the love! This has been a crazy, awesome ride but so worth it! Me and Gus signing out! #JepAndJessica."

Jules joins the couple's four biological children, Lily, Merritt, Priscilla and River.

Jessica told Country Rebel in an interview published earlier this month that they felt encouraged to adopt after appearing on their family's hit series and getting introduced to fans who are less fortunate.

"The past few years with Duck Dynasty, our eyes have been opened and we've seen a lot of kids that are in need," she explained. "Knowing that we can make a difference and take a child in that maybe would never have a mommy or daddy, you're changing a child's life forever. And he's going to change our life forever."

Duck Dynasty viewers know Jep as the youngest of Phil and Miss Kay Robertson's sons. His brother Willie and Willie's wife, Korie, also have an adopted son.

Jep and Jessica: Growing the Dynasty airs on A&E Wednesdays at 10 p.m. EST.
