'Sister Wives' Stars Have Baby Number 17

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 27th 2011 9:37AM
Uh oh, bad news for the Duggars ... Kody Brown and the 'Sister Wives' are nipping at their heels for the title of reality TV family with the craziest number of kids: Baby number 17 has arrived.

His fourth wife Robyn gave birth to her first child with Brown, a baby boy named Solomon, Wednesday morning at the couple's home in Las Vegas. "He's perfect and we couldn't be happier," Kody told 'People.' "We are so thrilled."

Solomon's birth will be featured in the 'Sister Wives' season finale, which airs Sunday November 27. He joins Robyn's three children from a previous marriage and the 13 other children ranging in age from one to 17 in the Brown family.

The Browns moved to Las Vegas from Utah after being threatened with prosecution for bigamy and Robyn's pregnancy has featured heavily in the current season. We've watched the couple go for doctors' visits and even discover the baby's gender on-camera. Brown admitted that the family had been split down the midle about wanting another boy or girl, but they all seemed pretty thrilled nonetheless.

Frankly, we're just wondering how they can afford to feed and clothe so many kids. The adults told Wendy Williams recently that their income is supplemented by being on a reality show, and with Kate Gosselin reportedly hoarding coupons since 'Kate Plus 8' was cancelled, we're betting that they'll all be lobbying for more seasons of 'Sister Wives.' Diapers don't come cheap.

'Sister Wives' airs Sundays, 9PM ET on TLC.

Christine, gets it. Something is wrong...old Robyn figured out how to be #1 now and forever...told Kody she was going to create 42 year honeymoon like her parents had...what guy would'nt want to spend his time there...Robyn got so jealous in a shopping incident and in a home incident some time ago she figured out how to get him mystified...

Christine, Meri and Janelle, go get slim, fix hair and makeup, get new clothes (not granma looking)...you might not even care if Kody is around then...and if you do the playing field will be equal

This is simply a veiled coverage of a man who wants to sleep with multiple women and call it God's Will.....there is not a sicker representation of how bad we have gone as a society that we elevate sexual addiction as a lifestyle and slap Jesus on the cover..... and believe me, this guy gets off on the jealosies these women certainly have amongst themselves....that's a better head rush for a guy than a bottle of viagra....sick sick sick.....God's will my arse....

It is easy to see that these women ARE jealous of each other.
I also believe if you watch close you will see little cracks in the foursome.
It is NOT good for these children. They do not get individual attention from their
father that ALL kids need. I know they are nice people but the kids WILL be the ones that lose.

...There is no need to "watch close" to see the cracks. You can "hear" the cracks with your eyes closed.
Ahh, this Kody Brown must be, or have been the "cheese of a boy"......That's how my grand-dad referred to my dad....My grand-dad could not see, for the life of him, why my mon thought he was the "cheese of a boy"
On a more serious note, the kids are the victims. I believe they need their dad as a daddy, and not as a visitor.

All the women are beautiful in thier own way, remember beauty is not just on the outside but true beauty comes from within. That's the true treasure!

I watched this show going in with judgment! but I have to say I'm happy for them. They and the children are happy and well cared for. I am a Christian and I am married with only one child. I don't know where in the bible it says you can't have more then one wife? A man did it all the time in the Old Testament, but it was different for a women. My husband and I talked about it and laughed at the idea of a sister wife, but knowing myself, I don't think so buddy keep dreaming I told him. To each their own! I wished I had had a big family growing up or at least was able to have more children, I believe these kids will be well rounding and adapt well to life and change as well as good social skills plus the parent are supportive on what each one would choose for their own lives, that's great:)
