How many kids does ‘Sister Wives’ star Kody Brown have?


The story of the Brown family from TLC’s “Sister Wives” stands out not just due to the unique dynamic of Kody Brown, the patriarch, and his multiple wives, but chiefly due to the sheer size of their family, which remains a compelling aspect of their narrative.

Having practiced polygamy for over three decades, Kody married Meri in 1990, followed by Janelle in 1993, Christine in 1994, and Robyn in 2010. The family tree boasts a staggering eighteen children through these marriages, as well as five grandchildren, offering a fascinating glimpse into their extraordinary family dynamics.

Kody and Janelle were the first to expand the Brown family, welcoming their oldest child, Logan, in May 1994, followed by five more children – Maddie, Hunter, Garrison, Gabriel, and Savanah. Through their daughter Maddie, the couple now has three grandchildren – Axel, Evie, and Josephine.


From Kody’s first marriage with Meri, they have one child, Leon, born in 1995. Leon, who came out as transgender in 2022 after previously identifying as a lesbian, recently married their partner, Audrey Kriss. The ceremony, reportedly held without any witnesses, drew attention, despite Leon’s private nature.

Kody and Christine have six children together – Aspyn, Mykelti, Paedon, Gwendlyn, Ysabel, and Truely. Christine’s departure from their Arizona home for Utah, taking their youngest daughter Truely along, marked the first permanent separation among the sister wives. This move sparked contentious childcare negotiations and post-split family gatherings, causing strife among Kody’s other wives and children, impacting his relationships with Meri and Janelle.

After Kody’s legal divorce from Meri to marry Robyn in 2010, he adopted Robyn’s children from a previous marriage – David, Aurora, and Breanna. Together, Kody and Robyn have two biological children – Solomon, born in 2011, and Ariella, born in 2016.

The ongoing story of the Brown family, with its intricate relationships, parenting, and personal journeys, continues to captivate audiences as they navigate the complexities of their polygamous lifestyle in the public eye through the lens of the reality TV series “Sister Wives.”
