Just a few weeks ago, Sister Wives star Maddie Brown Brush and her husband, Caleb Brush, became new parents. The baby boy, whom they’ve named Axel James, came into the world happy and healthy after his mom’s pregnancy was chronicled on the hit reality show.
Now, the new mom has taken to social media to talk about what it means to be a new mom, and how she’s handling the new responsibilities.
According to In Touch Weekly, Sister Wives star Maddie Brown Brush has said that she loves being a mother, but she’s sad that time is flying by so quickly.
“She seemed a little sad that two weeks has already passed since she became a first-time mommy. “This little stud is two weeks old today,” she wrote, adding a crying face emoji. “I’m torn between wanting to watch him grow and wanting him to stay small forever.” Since giving birth, she’s posted a few more photos of her adorable baby boy — and she even shared one where her newborn son showed off his cute little smile! “I am that mom I swore I wouldn’t be, posting tons of pictures of this handsome boy. How could I not though!?”

Naturally, as any good grandparents would, Sister Wives star Kody Brown and his wife, Jenelle — who are the parents to Maddie — were quick on the draw with their own parenting advice.
The Brown family patriarch, who has more than his fair share of experience with children, told In Touch Weekly in a different report that he was confident in his daughter’s abilities to parent, but he wasn’t afraid of giving her advice regardless.
Furthermore, because this is the Brown family’s first grandchild, Maddie had the birth at home, with Kody and Jenelle present, and Kody said that the experience was “intense.”
“He said Maddie was in labor for 72 hours — 12 of which were hard labor — and as her father, it was a little difficult to see her go through that. But they got through it together as a family. “It was interesting because we were all there together and everybody was kind of cheering her on and I think, honestly, that she was drawing strength somehow from having us all be there,” he said. Maddie’s mom jumped in and said that she thinks her first grandchild is “perfect.” She gushed over how adorable baby Axel is, and she gave her daughter some advice on how to adjust to parenthood.”

Unfortunately, according to a previous report by The Inquisitr, this may be the last time we see the Sister Wives clan on TV. TLC has yet to renew the hit show, and there’s talk that it may not come back after all.
There are many reasons why this is so, but declining ratings and all the controversy surrounding the Brown family are the two big reasons why the network is hesitant to bring the show back.
“TLC has yet to announce if Sister Wives will be renewed for another season. However, the network still gives occasional updates regarding Kody Brown’s family. Recently, TLC released pictures from Maddie’s pregnancy photo shoot, showing her adorable baby bump. Maddie’s baby with husband Caleb Brush will be the first grandchild for Kody Brown and the whole Sister Wives family.”
We’ll keep you informed with any Sister Wives renewal updates as they become known to us.
