A lot of things about the Brown family from Sister Wives are different from the average American family, while other things are extremely similar. Though they balance four wives, one husband, and 17 children, they also go through the same things as any other family. They're currently adding to the size of their family, as fourth wife Robyn is pregnant and due in 2016. She's been posting updates about her pregnancy since she found out about it a few months ago, and it will surely be a part of the new season of Sister Wives, because Robyn's three children were one of the main reasons why Kody divorced Meri, who had been his wife for over 20 years, and legally married Robyn.
Robyn just posted about reaching the halfway mark in her pregnancy in late August. That means that her due date should be sometime in January. People has the due date as Jan. 7. Obviously having a baby is never completely predictable, but come shortly after the new year, there should be a brand new member of the Brown family. And it's not just Robyn who is preparing for the new baby — all four wives and 17 children are joining in.
