Kody Brown is going to be a father again!
The patriarch on the controversial TLC reality show, Sister Wives, confirms to People that he and his fourth wife, Robyn, are expecting their first child together in October.
“You should have seen the look on his face when we found out,” Robyn, 31, told the magazine.
Though the baby will be the couple’s first, Robyn has three other kids from a previous marriage, and Kody has a combined 13 children with his other wives — Meri, Janelle, and Christine — bringing the total to 17 children in the Brown’s fundamentalist Las Vegas household once the new addition arrives. And lots of little helpers for Robyn!
The other day I wanted a sip of iced coffee,” recalls the expectant mom, “and Aspen and Mattie (two of her sister wives’ teenaged daughters) were with me and said, ‘Oh no you don’t. You shouldn’t be drinking coffee.’ It was cute. They’re so protective. And I can’t even tell you how many times a day I have kids kissing my belly.”
The proud papa is “overjoyed” about adding to his family, but one point of contention between he and his newest wife has been deciding between having a home birth, or delivering at a nearby hospital.
“If Kody had things his way, he’d have me go to the hospital,” says Robyn. “But I just like having home births. I’m not big into sitting around in a hospital.”
They may not agree yet, but Kody seems willing to negotiate on the matter. After all, this isn’t his first rodeo!
“I try to always be kind and tender,” says Brown, “but when a woman is expecting, you have to be ultra sensitive. And always do the dishes.”
