Kody Brown of TLC’s Sister Wives might already have a whopping 18 children with his four wives, Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn, but it seems he’s still open to more.
On the January. 19 episode of Sister Wives, “Four Wives, One House,” the 51-year-old polygamist patriarch shocked some of his family members by admitting that he didn’t know if he was completely finished having children.
‘Sister Wives’: Robyn and Kody are open to more kids
When Kody Brown drew up the plans for his dream home, which would include all four of his wives under one roof, he admitted that he left room for the potential of even more little ones. Kody and his 41-year-old fourth wife Robyn are the only brown couple still preparing for the possibility of additional children.
The Sister Wives star told the producers that he believed he was done having more organic children, but he wasn’t entirely sure. “I realize I’m 50 and by the time Ariella [his youngest daughter] finishes with my little girl, I’ll be 70.”
He added that he wasn’t sure whether it was his ego talking or a real desire for more children that led him to keep that door open. “You know, I was either looking forward to being a father or a father for the past 35 years,” he explained. “And I’m worried that it’s some kind of detachment from my ego, that it might be just what I’m doing, so I want to keep doing it. It’s an odd thought that I’m not going to have any more children.”
Robyn Brown agreed and said she was not quite ready to shut herself off from the possibility of adding more children to the Brown family. “To be honest, some of the kids have been shocking about their daddy and him having kids and stuff like that,” Kody’s youngest wife said. “And it’s like, he’s trying to say, I’m young enough to have more kids if I want to.”

I took a chance and ran to @sutcliffefloral early in the morning in my yoga pants and yesterday’s makeup (something I never do) to get some birthday flowers for someone special. They were so wonderful and quickly put together this beautiful bouquet for me- and never lifted an eyebrow at my unkempt appearance. Thank you ladies! I will be a repeat customer. 💐
During a presentation on Christmas Eve with many of Sister Wives‘ children and all four women, Kody revealed his plans for a massive single-family home. On the way, he let it slip that he wasn’t sure that there wouldn’t be more brown children.
“A lot of people, a lot of my peers, are looking forward to an empty nest. I’ve never been that person,” Kody Brown told his family during the presentation. “I’m constantly debating with myself whether Ari is the last one or not.”
The room fell into a surprised silence when some of the adult children and other wives wondered if there was a new baby on the way.
Second wife Janelle’s daughter Maddie Brown Brush (who now has two children of her own) exclaimed in response: “You’re arguing whether Ari’s the last one or not?” “Different subject, different subject,” said her husband Caleb Brush, who was trying to ease the tension.
“Do you see, I’ve got a washboard stomach, sweetheart,” Kody shot back. “That’s testosterone, I promise you.” “Oh, my God!” Maddie cried out as the room exploded into an uncomfortable smile, partly because of the TMI implications about Kody’s ongoing s*x life.
Christine’s daughter, Aspyn Brown Thompson, who recently married Mitch Thompson, shouted, “I’m not listening to you anymore!” “I hope you stay in your cabin,” another daughter joked.

In a more serious way, Robyn Brown explained that she and Kody were trying to make decisions about more children based on spiritual guidance. The fundamentalist Mormon family believes that children are born because souls in heaven are trying to get to the side of the earth.
“Kody Brown and I always try to make sure that our family is complete and that there is not some sweet little spirit in heaven waiting to be born into our family,” said the Sister Wives star TLC producers. “We just want to make sure Ari is really, really the last of our family.”
Still, Robyn wasn’t entirely happy about Kody spilling details about their pillow talk to the rest of the family. “But I don’t know what to make of him sitting here talking about it in front of everyone on Christmas Eve with this house,” he admitted. “I don’t know what to do with it now.”
