On November 17, 2022, sister wives stars Mykelti and Tony Padron welcomed twin boys Archer Banks Padron and Ace McCord Padron. Mykelti’s mother, Christine Brown, was there for the birth and her father, Kody Brown’s fourth wife, Robyn Brown. Tony posts photos of the two of them, thanking them for being such “awesome moms.”
Mykelti and Tony welcome twins Archer and Ace
Mykelti and Tony already had their hands full with their 1-year-old daughter, Avalon Asa Padron. Now her family of three is a family of five. On November 17, Mykelti was induced at a hospital at 6:30 am. Because the children were breech, the doctor performed an emergency C-section. And just hours after being induced, Mykelti welcomed two healthy babies. See a photo of Padron’s new additions below (via TLC):
Archer Banks arrived at 10:54 a.m. and Ace McCord arrived two minutes later at 10:56 a.m. At birth, both children were 19 inches long. Archer was 6.15 pounds and Ace was 6.8 pounds. She revealed that they were sent home after a day at the hospital and that everyone is fine.
Tony thanks the amazing mums Christine and Robyn for being by Mykelti’s side during the birth.
After Christine divorced Kody and moved to Utah, she hasn’t had much of a relationship with Robyn, especially now that she’s no longer a sister wife. Although their relationship is not the best, the two women had to put aside their problems and be there for Mykelti, Tony and her grandchildren. After the twins were born, Tony posted a tribute to all the moms who supported them. Check out the Instagram post below:

Tony captioned the post: “I just want to say thank you! Our amazing moms who came to help us. All of you the best!!”
Mykelti’s close relationship with Robyn
Even during the more than 12 years that Christine and Robyn were sister wives, their relationship was never close. However, Mykelti became very close to Robyn when she first entered the family in 2010.
In sister wives Season 17, Robyn was asked by Mykelti to be present at the delivery of her first child, which she joined via Zoom. “I adore Mykleti. She came to live with me before she married me to Kody. And so we have a very close bond,” Robyn told the sister wives cameras
“Robyn and Mykelti have a very, very special bond,” added Christine. “When Robyn entered the family, she immediately hugged Mykelti. And I will always, always love and respect Robyn for her relationship with Mykelti,” she concluded.
sister wives fans are divided on whether Robyn is there with Christine. While some aren’t fans of Robyn, they think it’s amazing that she continues to support Mykelti. However, some sister wives fans feel that Robyn’s presence could be taking away from Christine’s big day as a grandmother.
new episodes of sister wives Season 17 airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
