Phil Robertson‘s controversial comments about gay and black people clearly haven’t had an effect on his bank account. Though the Duck Dynasty star is currently on an “indefinite hiatus” from filming, he splashed out on a sparkly ring for his wife, Miss Kay, for Christmas.
The Robertson matriarch posed happily showing off her new rock in a photo posted by granddaughter Sadie Robertson on Christmas Day. Phil, barely cracking a smile, points emphatically at his gift.
“After 50 years of marriage, Papaw Phil finally gave Mamaw Kay a wedding ring for Christmas,” Sadie wrote.

The gift had certainly been a long time coming: The couple have weathered serious ups and downs throughout their marriage because of Phil’s admitted infidelity and drinking and drug use in the 1960s.
They’ve claimed it’s been smooth sailing ever since he found God, but Miss Kay still didn’t have the ring of truth — until now.
Could Phil also have been apologizing for putting his better half through the ringer this month after his comments to GQ ignited a firestorm of controversy?
