Before marrying Kody Brown, Sister Wives star Robyn Brown was married to someone else. In 2010, Robyn joined the rest of the Brown family as Kody’s fourth and final wife. She’s the most recent addition to the family. Now, she shares her husband Kody with Meri Brown, Janelle Brown, and Christine Brown.
Before joining the Brown family, she was married to a man named David Jessop. The two got married in June 1999 and divorced in 2007. They had three children together, David, born in 2000, Aurora, born in 2002, and Breanna, born in 2005. Ultimately, David and Robyn split up because he was treating her and the kids poorly.
Fortunately, Robyn was able to get out of her marriage to David and protect her kids. In 2018, David was arrested for assault, so it doesn’t sound like anything has changed.
Since marrying Kody, Robyn has had two more children, Ariella and Solomon. A current storyline on the show is the possibility of Robyn having another child, but she knows she doesn’t have much more time. She’s 41 years old and having a baby at this age may not be doable. Viewers are interested to see what happens with this storyline.
I have several family members that live in Utah. My Dad and Mom live there and I would LOVE to be able see them more and be able to be around them during this time in their life. Moving to Utah is such a temptation! I just don’t think it is fair to do that to our kids.

Robyn Brown reflects on past marriage
In an episode of Sister Wives, Robyn opens up about her past relationship. She says, “I promised myself that as I came out of my divorce that I was like, ‘If I ever marry again, I’m just going to be more cautious and more careful.'”
She explained to the other wives, “I am a little more quiet. I have a tendency to be cautious.”
In a confessional on the show, Robyn explains that she and Kody don’t really fight. Despite being together for over a decade, they manage to avoid conflict. She says, “Let’s just say that it’s rare that I fight with him. I probably could name five real fights in the last 10, 11 years we’ve been together. Probably five real fights. Maybe not even that.”
She reflects on her marriage to David, saying, “I was married before, and in that marriage there was a lot of fighting and there was a lot of pain.”
Based on Robyn’s past relationship experience, it makes sense why she would be cautious in her marriage with Kody. She wants to protect herself, and she has experienced a bad relationship firsthand.
