Sister Wives star Kody Brown welcomed his 17th child yesterday.

Today, we bring you the first look (courtesy of TLC) of Solomon.

Solomon Brown was born at the polygamous family's Las Vegas home at 2:02 Wednesday morning, weighing in at 9 lbs, 10.5 oz. Here is the little angel with father Kody, mom Robyn, and sort-of moms Meri, Christine and Janelle ...

Robyn's pregnancy was the focus of Sister Wives' Season 3 premiere.

Solomon joins Mariah, Madison, Savanah, Logan, Hunter, Garrison, Gabriel, Aspyn, Mykelti, Gwendlyn, Ysabel, Truely, Paedon, Dayton, Aurora and Breanna.

Three of the children are Robyn's from a previous relationship, so this is her first child with Kody, who has fathered the other 13 kids with the Sister Wives.

Congratulations to the happy, unconventional, ever-expanding family!

Sister Wives star Kody Brown and fourth wife Robyn welcomed their first child together - and his polygamist family's 17th overall - to the family on Wednesday.

Solomon Brown was born at 2:02 a.m. on Wednesday in the family’s home in Las Vegas, Nevada, and he weighed in 9 lbs., 10.5 oz., with a length of 22 inches.

He and Robyn are both resting comfortably.

Congrats to Kody Brown and the whole family! Robyn's the one in the middle!

Proud papa Kody said, “He's perfect and we couldn't be happier."

His controversial family is documented on TLC's Sister Wives, on which Meri, Janelle and Christine welcomed Robyn to the extended family last year.

The family recently left Utah and are struggling with the vast array of changes in their lives, separated in four houses in more-accepting Nevada.

Robyn's pregnancy was the focal point of the third season premiere of the reality show. We anxiously await Solomon's debut on a future episode.

Your thoughts on the Sister Wives crew:

With 16 combined kids and one more on the way, the titular stars of TLC's Sister Wives decided it was time to drop a few pounds and get back in shape.

Think the network encouraged/forced that nonsense at all?

Regardless, Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn were evidently quite serious about getting healthy so they visited a personal trainer, Biggest Loser style.

As if jealousy issues weren't already prevalent, this had to foster such feelings or did it? Perhaps meeting with theology teacher to gain "perspective" balanced it out?

Kody Brown, Wives

The wives all met up with Bill, Meri's personal trainer, at which point the four Mrs. Kody Browns got weighed in front of each other, much to Janelle's abject horror.

She weighs 271 pounds.

"My physical appearance has always been my Achilles' heel," she says, unclear on what that means, since she's still married with kids by the same guy as the rest.

Meri opines, "Kody loves me for me. Kody loves Robyn for Robyn... I know Kody likes my curves." Robyn concurs ... and despite being pregnant weighs the least.

Poor Janelle.

Who says you can't go home as a polygamist again?

This week on TLC's Sister Wives, Kody Brown and his four wives paid a visit to his hometown (Lovell, Wyoming), which was a pretty big deal for the Brown Bomber and Co. because it was his "first time going back openly as a polygamist."

Think TLC encouraged/forced that field trip at all?

Kody was hella nervous, understandably, because when you go in and have the "Scarlet 'P' on your shoulder, you just don't know if people will ostracize you or not."

Most of us will never have that issue, but the sentiment rings true.

By and large, they were well received, which was nice. Even if you don't like what they do, they seen like nice people and are basically harmless, so c'est la vie.

A few people even congratulated Robyn on her pregnancy, while their critics basically concurred that these were good people who just had the "wrong idea."

"Sometimes, I don't like this."

Pretty much. Being married to one woman is hard enough. Imagine four! Or think about sharing your husband with three other women. Not what we signed up for ...

Only for Kody Brown and his quartet of spouses, they did sign up for it. This is what they do, and like all of us, their lives feature drama and tension beneath the surface.

Unlike all of us, there's a TLC show devoted to the Browns ...

Robyn, Meri, Janelle, Christine Brown

So what went down last night? While Kody was excited to announce the sex of Robyn's baby, he reflected on the problems he faced with his first three marriages.

Marriages that are still going on, of course.

Christine, with whom he's currently having serious marital discord, expressed frustration with the family's new Las Vegas living situation. It's been an adjustment.

She is lonely. She feels Kody coddles Robyn, although she adores Kody and Robyn. It's just that he leaves for four days at a time, and frankly that blows (our words).

If last week's Sister Wives season premiere taught us anything, it's that life in a polygamist household entails a different spin on some of life's rites of passage.

Case in point from last night's episode: "The Talk."

As in the talk about s-e-x. How does a man with four wives and 17 kids (or something, we lost count) broach this topic? What values does Kody Brown instill?

Sister Wives Picture

In the living room of one of the family's new Nevada homes, the Brown Bomber took charge, telling the kids he doesn't want them to date in high school.

That did not exactly go over well.

"You should not be sexual until you've graduated high school ever," he said, adding that he'd "prefer" they wait until marriage to become sexually active.

"I don't really want to talk about my daughters marrying ... or dating," Brown says later. Understandable, given that he's married four people's daughters.

New state, bigger family, same drama baby. On the Season 3 premiere of Sister Wives, Kody Brown and his many spouses settled in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In four different homes, all close to each other.

The biggest development since we last heard from the giant family is that Kody and Robyn are expecting. That leads to complications with the other wives, of course, such as the jealousy from Robyn's BFF Meri, who can't bear more kids.

Sister Wives Cast

Robyn approached her about it personally, however, and Meri showed her true colors like the classy lady that she is. She even lamented in her response that people feel they have to be so sensitive to her regarding the child-bearing topic.

Everybody in the family was pretty psyched about the news, save for teenagers Aspen, Hunter and Maddie. You know teenagers, though. Always brooding.

Since Robyn's three kids have a different father, this is really her first with Kody Brown, and a big step in terms of being indoctrinated into the family unit.

What else went on in the premiere?

Sister Wives' Kody Brown wants to take the State of Utah to court, according to reports, challenging the legitimacy of bigamy laws that ban his lifestyle.

Brown and his four-wife "plural" family claim they're filing a suit against Utah, challenging the state's bigamy law. Whether he'll succeed is another story.

Their family attorney, who will file the lawsuit, posted the following on his website: "We are not demanding the recognition of polygamous marriage."

The lawyer continues, "We are only challenging the right of the state to prosecute people for private relations and demanding equal treatment with other private citizens in living their lives according to their own beliefs."

"It is a legal challenge designed to benefit not just polygamists but all citizens who wish to live their lives according to their own values - even if those values may run counter to those of the majority in the state."

Kody Brown of TLC's Sister Wives and the fourth of four wives, Robyn, are expecting another baby! Congratulations to the couple ... and the whole family!

"You should've seen the look on his face when we found out," said Robyn Brown, who has three kids of her own from a prior marriage. "It was priceless."

The baby, due in October, will be the first for Kody and Robyn. It will be the 17th for Brown, including her kids and Kody's with his three other wives.

Kody and Robyn Brown (middle) are expecting!

Kody and Robyn, who moved to Vegas with the rest of his fundamentalist Mormon family in January, got married last year on Season 1 of Sister Wives.

Kody is also married to Meri, the legal wife, Janelle, and Christine.

He and the Wives have been under investigation ever since their polygamist lifestyle started being broadcast on TLC, but no charges have been filed yet.

Polygamy is illegal, technically, but if no minors are being corrupted or other crimes are involved, Utah or Nevada authorities rarely if ever prosecute.

What do you think? Should they be?

Still under police investigation, TLC Sister Wives polygamist Kody Brown is taking his four wives and 19 kids straight out of Utah and into Nevada.

Sources close to the Browns say that they will be relocating to the Silver State so he and his gigantic brood can "explore new job opportunities."

Sister Wives Wives

Of course, scrutiny over their lifestyle may also play a role. Cohabitation between a man and his unlicensed "wives" is not a crime in Nevada.

ONE MAN, FOUR WIVES: Kody Brown's life is like a less attractive Big Love.

Brown family attorney Jonathan Turley says that to this point, neither Kody nor his wives have been hit with charges stemming from the Utah investigation.

Bigamy is a crime in Utah, however it is rarely prosecuted on its own merit because there would be many more cases than officials could possibly deal with.

Unless one of the wives is a minor or there are other crimes involved, which don't appear to apply to the Browns, it's likely they'll be off the hook.

What do you think? Should they be prosecuted?
