Filming is underway for the upcoming season of Sister Wives — but some fans of the long running reality series might not know that Kody Brown shares a family tree with his third wife, Christine Brown.
A little research confirms that Kody Brown and Christine Brown share a distant grandparent. Nelson Allred was Kody’s great-great grandfather, and brother to Byron Allred — who was Christine’s great-great grandfather. The relational link makes Kody Brown and Christine Brown — the mother of six of Kody’s eighteen children — fourth cousins.
Most devotees of the TLC show know that Janelle Brown was once married to Adam Barber, Meri Brown’s brother. Another all-in-the-family twist points to Kody’s fourth wife, Robyn Brown’s ex-husband, David Preston Jessop, who also shares a connection with the Brown clan. Jessop is Christine’s first cousin and Kody’s third cousin.
Polygamous bloodlines often intersect — and the twisted Brown family tree is no exception.
