Since “Sister Wives” first premiered in 2010, TLC viewers have known all the ins and outs of the Brown family. Kody Brown has 18 children with his four wives: Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn Brown.

“Sister Wives” was intended to show an example of plural marriage in real time. Today though, Kody is only married to his fourth wife, Robyn. Christine announced that she was leaving Kody in November 2021. A little over a year later, Janelle revealed that she and Kody broke up on a TLC special. Meri said that she and Kody also broke up and that he “made the decision”.

Can’t keep up with the Brown family tree? We’ve done all the research so you don’t have to.

Meri and Kody’s children

Kody and his first wife, Meri, have a son together: 27-year-old Leon Brown.

Leon announced that he is transgender and uses the pronouns they/they in an Instagram post in June 2022.

“I remember the first time I knew I wasn’t a girl. I was very young and unfortunately grew up in an incredibly sexist and restrictive context,” the reality star wrote at the time. “So I continued to be socialized as a girl and later as a woman. And here it is, I’m finally ready to share my favorite self with the world. And that self is incredibly genderqueer, trans, and unapologetic.”

Meri supported her son following the announcement and posted a birthday tribute to Leon over the summer.

“Laughter runs through her veins, strength and inner wisdom abound! 27 years in this world, 27 years learning, growing, loving. Always proud of this son of mine, forever grateful for his existence,” she wrote, sharing a series of photos from Leon.

Children of Janelle and Kody

Kody and his second wife, Janelle, have six children and two grandchildren.

Hunter Brown, 25, falls right in with Janelle’s kids. In July 2022, the proud mother announced that her son was now living close by her and expressed her excitement.

“This mom’s heart is bursting ❤️. My son Hunter is ‘local-ish’ for the first time in 7 years. He’s been home during Covid for a few months of course. But now he’s truly ‘adult’ and not much far from me,” she wrote on Instagram at the time.

Garrison, 24, is one of Janelle’s two children who has a strained relationship with their father, Kody. In a Season 17 episode, the mother of six discussed their ongoing feud.

“Kody and my kids are very distant. He doesn’t even want to see their point of view. He’s like, ‘You offended me. You offended those close to me (aka Robyn). You have to come… apologize and humiliate yourself. You know, my boys are just not going to do it,” she said at the time.

In season 17 of “Sister Wives”, Gabriel discussed the tension between him and his father. He revealed that he stopped talking to Kody when he forgot to wish him a happy birthday.

“I shouldn’t have done it, but I did it anyway. I didn’t remind him it was my birthday because I wanted to see if he remembered and he didn’t,” she said.

Gabe explained that it was “just a phone call” for dad Kody, but it was “much worse” for him.

“He tried to call me back, say ‘congratulations’ and make up for it. And that was the last time I spoke to my father,” he said.

Savanah, Janelle and Kody’s youngest daughter, recently turned 18 and her mother posted a sweet message for her daughter on Instagram.

Children of Christine and Kody

The divorced couple has six children together: five daughters and one son.

Eldest daughter Aspyn (27) lives just minutes from Christine, who moved to Utah in 2022. The proud mom recently told that she loves getting together for spontaneous dinners with her daughter.

Mykelti, 26, lives half an hour away from her mother and has three children with her husband Tony Padron: daughter Avalon Asa (20 months) and twins Archer Banks and Ace McCord (born in November 2022).

Truely, 12, is Kody and Christine’s youngest child and lives in Utah with her mother. In season 17 of “Sister Wives”, the former couple clashed over custody of Truely as they worked through their divorce.

When Truely learned that her parents were separating while filming “Sister Wives”, she was upset by the news. As she reflected on the moment, she told Christine how it made her feel.

“I kind of noticed the earlier signs that you weren’t that happy, but you didn’t really show it much, so of course I didn’t really know. It was a little painful at first, but I’m fine now,” she said.

Robyn and Kody’s children

Breanna, 18, is next in line and the youngest of Robyn’s three children from a previous marriage. In a 2018 Instagram post, Robyn described her daughter as “shy, quiet and kind until someone she loves is stalked, then she’s so fierce.” The mother of five also said that Breanna is an “incredible listener and writer”.
