Is the Sister Wives family tree possibly sprouting another branch?
During Sunday’s episode, Kody Brown and his fourth wife Robyn revealed that they may not be done having children, even though Kody is currently already the father of 18 children from his four wives.
Kody and Robyn stated that they have been considering adding to their “nest.”
“A lot of people, a lot of my peers, are looking forward to an empty nest. I’ve never been that person,” Kody– whose youngest child, Ariella, is four years old– said. “I’m constantly debating with myself whether Ari’s the last or not.
“I realized that I’m 50 and so by the time Ariella is done being my little girl, that I’ll be 70,” he continued. “I was either looking forward to being a father, or a father, for the past 35 years… It’s a weird thought for me to think that I am not gonna have any more kids.”

These two are peas in a pod. They pretty much ADORE one another and follow each other everywhere. I just start snapping pics today because they are so cute with each other. Their matching wild hair, half moon eyes and infectious smiles make me giggle. #crazyhairdontcare #daddyslittlesweetie #adorable #daddyisthebomb
Like Kody, Robyn admits that she’s open to the idea of the family growing. At 41, Robyn is the youngest of Kody’s wives. (In case you’re wondering, Meri is currently 49, Janelle is 50 and Christine is 47.)
“It’s like he’s trying to say, ‘I’m young enough to have more kids if I want to.’ Kody and I are like, always trying to make sure that our family is complete and there isn’t some sweet little spirit in Heaven waiting to be born to our family,” Robyn said. “We just want to make sure that, like, Ari really, truly is the last of our family.”
While live-tweeting Sunday’s episode, Janelle commented on the subject, relating it to her experience of giving birth to her own youngest child Savanah, who is now 15.
“Our faith teaches that our families have some pre-destiny,” she wrote. “We choose whose family we want be with before birth. We feel a great calling to make sure that our families are complete when we are having children. I had something like that with my Savanah.”

Kody and Robyn already have five children together, three of whom are Robyn’s children from a previous marriage that Kody adopted in 2015. In addition, they have Ari and a son, Solomon, who is eight years old.
Despite Kody and Robyn apparently considering bringing baby Number 19 into the bunch, Robyn’s friend Kendra Pollard-Parra told In Touch last year that Robyn’s days of birthing babies are in the past.
“No, Robyn is not having another baby,” she said. “She had a really hard pregnancy the last time around and she gained a ton of weight. She already has breathing issues so she has a really hard time losing weight.”
