Their reality show is unstoppable, with the fourth season premiere of “Duck Dynasty” shattering records with 11.8 million viewers, turning it into the most-watched non-fiction series telecast in cable TV history.

But before the fame and resulting fortunes, the Robertsons were just your average family — and they still are, according to friends of the family.

Life & Style has obtained this never-before-seen family photo taken back in 2001 — with surprisingly clean-shaven faces, and wow, what a difference.

“Willie has always been the jokester of the family,” says the insider. “Alan is the only one who kept the clean-cut look. And Jase and Jep have always been quieter and more reserved than their brother Willie.” But it seems time is standing still for their mom. “Kay looks even younger now than she did back then!”
