Hey, it’s what sister wives are for, right?
As Wendy Michaels reports over on Strollerderby, on the season finale of Sister Wives, Robyn offered to be a surrogate if Meri wants to have another baby.
The conversation went down right after Robyn gave birth to her and Kody’s first child together, but the seventeenth child in the Brown family:
Robyn: “I want to get you while you’re good and emotional. I want to know if you want me to be your surrogate. Taking pieces of you and pieces of Kody . . . I’m offering it, wholeheartedly.”
Meri teared up and said “Wow, thanks.” before she leaned down to hug Robyn and cry.
Meri has struggled with fertility issues since giving birth to her and Kody’s only daughter, Mariah, fifteen years ago. Meri has expressed her desire for more kids while watching wives 2 and 3 go on to have six kids apiece. And, you may remember, during the first season Kody said he was willing to try IVF with Meri, who replied that she was done with that part of her life.
So the question remains: will Meri take Robyn’s offer? I guess we’ll have to tune in next season…
Would you be a surrogate to a close friend or family member? Even though I have horrible pregnancies I absolutely would.
