Relax, relax -- baby Solomon and mom Robyn are healthy and doing fine. It wasn't Solomon's actual birth (which, yes, took place at home) that made the Sister Wives season finale so shocking, it was what happened directly afterward. But I'll wait to talk about that until after the jump, because man, what a SPOILER ALERT!!!
Anyway, no biggie, because there were plenty of surprises that happened before the birth to concern ourselves with now. Like Christine's big reveal about what a hard time she had accepting Robyn into the family. Well, that in and of itself wasn't a huge surprise, but the part about how she felt like she treated Robyn badly was kind of unexpected. I never really noticed her being mean to Robyn, did you? I always thought it was Meri who had the major issues with wife #4.
Which is what made the aforementioned afterbirth event SO SHOCKING!
Okay, here goes. After baby Solomon was born (FYI: Kody was, not surprisingly, a pretty awesome birth coach. You could swear he had experience or something!), and each sibling had a turn holding their new little brother (a fairly lengthy process), Robyn told Kody that she needed to speak to Meri alone. Hmmm ...
What could she have to say to her family's founding wife? I figured it was going to be something like, "Hey, I'm glad we've grown closer over these months and thanks for sticking up for my kids, etc."
But no! Just moments after pushing out yet another member of the Brown family (by the way, those are some damn strong genes Kody has! Kid looks like him already!), Robyn offered her services as a surrogate to the fertility-challenged Meri.
Um ... wow?
Of course Meri cried, and Robyn cried, and the episode ended on a will they or won't they? note, with Robyn assuring Meri that she didn't have to feel pressured to make a decision right away.
Although, you know, if the Sister Wives really want to get picked up for another season ... might not be a bad idea ...
Do you think Robyn should be a surrogate for Meri?
