In addition to Mykelti, Christine and Kody share five other children together: Asypen, 27, Paedon, 23, Gwendlyn, 20, Ysabel, 19, and Truely, 12. Kody also dad to Mariah, 26, with Meri Brown; Logan, 28, Maddie, 26, Hunter, 25, Robert Garrison, 23, Gabriel, 20, and Savanah, 17, with Janelle Brown; and Solomon, 10, and Arielle, 6, with his legal spouse Robyn Brown.
As documented on Sister Wives, Kody was “spiritually married” to Christine before their separation. During the Sister Wives One-on-One special earlier this year, the 53-year-old patriarch said major factors that led to their breakup were his resistance to work on their intimacy, as well as having to deal with rumors that Christine wanted to separate.
“I was at a point where I wanted her to address the rumors that I’ve been hearing from the kids, that she was threatening to leave,” he said, adding if they have had that difficult conversation, “How frank are we going to get? I don’t want her to leave.”
