Sister Wives star Robyn Brown is pregnant, and it seems the family is quite excited that it will soon grow by one more. The family shared the big news first via People and a big family photo, and many of the family members have since taken to social media to share their excitement. What’s known so far about the big addition?
As fans of the show know, Kody Brown and his four wives already have a large brood. Now that it’s been revealed Robyn Brown is pregnant, that means this will be the 18th child in the family. This will be Kody’s 15th biological child, and the family has also fully embraced Robyn’s three older children from her previous marriage.
People shares that the new Sister Wives baby is due on January 7. This will be the second biological child for Robyn and Kody together, as the two also have Solomon who was born in October 2011. Kody has one daughter with Meri, his first wife, six children with Janelle and six with Christine.
After People announced the news on their site, Kody and the wives shared the news via Twitter as well. While Kody and Janelle simply shared the link without comment while others added some additional notes or thoughts.
Christine wrote, “I’m so excited @LuvgvsUwngs is pregnant. I’ve been teasing her for months about having a baby girl for Truely to play with.”
Robyn shared the link and added, “Finally! We are so excited!”
Many have been worried about Meri’s reaction, some even noting that in the family’s photo announcement she didn’t look necessarily thrilled. Sister Wives fans know that Meri had always wanted to have another child with Kody, and she even officially divorced Kody last year so that he could formally marry Robyn.
Despite the worries from fans, Meri did tweet about the pregnancy and congratulated Robyn and Kody. She added that she’s happy for them both. Meri’s post did prompt a lot of support from fans who adore her and worry about how she’s doing in the midst of all these family changes.
Fans have been very curious to know when a new season of Sister Wives would begin on TLC. Though the network has yet to formally announce anything, Robyn did indicate in her tweets when asked by a fan that the show returns in September. For now, though, viewers will have to stay tuned for a specific premiere date.
Viewers will surely be interested to watch things play out this fall when a new season of Sister Wives begins and Robyn Brown’s pregnancy is revealed to the family and fans.
