This is the first child for Kody, 43, and Robyn, 33, who married into the family last year. Robyn has three children from a previous marriage. Their wedding was shown on the TLC reality show.

Kody’s other wives are Janelle, Christine and Meri, who is his only legal wife. The entire Brown clan moved to Las Vegas last year after officials in Utah launched an investigation against Kody for felony bigamy. The family is currently involved in a lawsuit challenging Utah’s polygamy law.
