This week, TLC treated us to a special mini episode of Sister Wives on Friday night! After last week’s episode, which was centered Kody and his daughters, it’s time to bring the show back to what really matters—Kody’s fourth (and favorite) wife, Robyn! Wife Number 4 Number 1 apparently has a “big announcement.”
We start out with Kody and Robyn signing the paperwork for Kody to be able to adopt Robyn’s three children from her previous marriage. Forgotten third wife Christine isn’t feeling too hot about their chances of adopting the children, however.
“Polygamist don’t usually win custody cases,” Christine tells us. She is afraid the evil polygamists like Warren Jeffs are giving them all a bad name and the judge won’t grant them custody.
Kody and Robyn (and the three wives who can just be called “The Others”) all head down to the lawyer’s office to discuss the details of the adoption. The lawyer tells them that if the adoption goes through, the kids will be issued new birth certificates with Kody listed as their father.
“Hey, Meri! That’s a payday isn’t it?” Kody says. Meri seems so unenthusiastic. She can barely muster a “That’s cool.”
Christine, however, is all into it.
“He’s a good person to put your kids on paper with,” she says with tears in her eyes.
They also talk about how Robyn’s son, Dayton, will be legally changing his name. His current legal name is David Preston Jessop, after his father. However, he has decided to change his name to David Dayton Brown to reflect his nickname.
In the preview for tonight’s episode, Kody and Robyn sit down with Robyn’s three children, Brianna, Aurora, and Dayton and telling them two huge pieces of news. The first is that Kody signed the paperwork to adopt them.
The second is….they’re getting a new sibling. Yes, of course, Robyn is pregnant again! Everyone knows that the thing the Brown women like to do the most (other than cry, of course) is make babies with Kody!
On tonight’s episode, they break the news to the whole family that they will be adding a new member.
