Duck Dynasty got serious last night with the show's fifth season finale.
The episode focused on Mia Robertson, 10. The daughter of Jase and Missy Robertson was born with a cleft palate and received corrective surgery.
If you watch Duck Dynasty online, you're "gonna go from gut-wrenching laughter to crying, because it's very sweet," Missy tells People of Mia's ordeal.
Adds Jase Robertson, the laid-back brother famous for his no-worries attitude: "I was never an emotional guy until I had a daughter who had problems."
"When you hand your daughter off to some doctors and you know they're going to cut on her, that's tough. I lost it. So much for not being emotional."
Were they worried about the public scrutiny Mia (seen with mom, dad and big brothers Reed and Cole above) might face as a result of the episode?
"Of course, that was a worry," says Jase. "There have been times when kids made fun of her for how she looks. We've had to have some serious talks about it."
The Robertsons formed the Mia Moo Fund, whose slogan is "Because Every Kid Deserves A Smile," to raise awareness and help children with similar problems.
