Last night's viewers got to see Jessica and Jep Robertson on their new show, and they even brought home their new baby Jules. Everyone was happy to see that after an attempt at adoption failed, Jep and Jessica were able to bring their baby boy home with them. This morning, Jessica and Jep were on Good Morning America to talk about how things are going now and their new show Jep and Jessica: Growing the Dynasty. ET Online shared what the two had to say on the show this morning.

This show was their first live interview since Gus joined their family. The baby is named Jules, but they are calling him by his middle name. Jessica Robertson shared that after their fourth child River, she had some health problems which kept her from having another baby. After several years of talking about it, Jep and Jessica Robertson decided that this was something they really wanted to do for their family. Jep Robertson teased that he wanted a full basketball team. Jep also said if they can spoil a child, then they are doing it.

Yahoo shared that Jessica Robertson actually had to have multiple caesarean sections with her older children, and was told by her doctor that she could not have another baby biologically. They also had two adoptions that failed and didn't work out for the family in the end.

"He always said, and I guess this never got quoted, is that, 'We're all part of one race, the human race.' He loves him."
"I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. They're singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, I tell you what: These doggone white people -- not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues."
