Robyn Brown posted on Twitter this week, saying she has lived in secrecy most of her life.

Kody Brown’s fourth (and only legal) wife detailed her post, saying, “Living in secrecy most of my life was very hard and I am so happy that my family and I get to be open about who we are.”

“It hasn’t been easy but it has been worth it. A lot of families do not get to be open and do not get to own who they are.”

Robyn’s tweet was possibly a follow-up post in response to the family’s Sister Wives episode on Sunday.

Open for business! 🎉 Sister Wives star Meri Brown recently revealed that she reopened her B&B Lizzie's Heritage Inn after closing it to mourn the loss of her mom, Bonnie, who was the innkeeper. ⁠
⁠
Meri admitted she's "nervous" about running things the way her mom did and shared, "As I’ve spent the last couple weeks getting the house ready, I’ve smiled, I’ve cried, I’ve come across things I need to tell her.”⁠
⁠
She continued, "now I know why the electrician didn’t call you back that day, why the doorbell only works sometimes and not others, and you should try this new rice crispy treat flavor we planned on doing together. I’m nervous about doing this, she had it so dialed in and knew the drill.”⁠
⁠
Despite her nerves, Meri is also excited and appreciative of her team! ❤️ Catch more details on Meri and her B&B at the #linkinbio! ⁠

In the last episode, the Browns visited the Dargers in Utah, where polygamy has recently been decriminalized. The Dargers played a role in the legal change.

The Browns were living in Utah when Robyn entered the family, but fled to Las Vegas to escape criminal prosecution for polygamy, another possible reference for the motive of her tweet.

Robyn grew up in a plural family

Robyn grew up in the lifestyle, or the “principle,” as sister wife Janelle explained in the season opener. Robyn and the rest of the Brown family consider themselves fundamentalist Mormons.

Not a lot of information is available about Robyn’s early life. She was raised by parents who practiced plural marriage, while she was only married monogamously before meeting Kody and his other three wives.

Robyn has mentioned in Sister Wives episodes that growing up in a polygamist family was hard. Children were often afraid their families would be torn apart if their fathers were arrested for polygamy.

Robyn first entered the Brown family when Kody’s third wife, Christine, was pregnant with her sixth child. Robyn brought three children from her previous marriage into the family.

Kody’s first wife, Meri, legally divorced him in 2014 so he could marry Robyn legally in order to adopt her three children, Dayton, Aurora, and Breanna.

Robyn is Kody’s fourth wife, joining sister wives Meri, Christine, and Janelle. Kody has spiritual marriages with his other three wives, since the law only allows one legal spouse.

Robyn has received a lot of flak for being Kody’s “favorite” wife, with some fans theorizing that she’s plotting to become Kody’s only wife.

Kody recently shared that, since the pandemic, he spends a lot more time at Robyn’s house. He also told TLC’s cameras that he isn’t advocating for polygamy anymore, leaving fans to wonder if Robyn and Kody have planned to be a monogamous couple all along.

Sister Wives airs on Sundays at 10/9c on TLC.
