Kody was apparently inspired by William and Genielle’s polygamist lifestyle, which led to him having four wives. However, other family members may have chosen to live a monogamous lifestyle. This could potentially be the case for Kody’s siblings.

It wouldn’t be a surprise if people in a polygamous relationship have more than five children, especially if there are more than two women involved in the equation. Kody is currently the father of 18 children.

Although his parents William and Genielle (along with Bobbie and Sheryl) didn’t have as many children, it’s still a relatively large family. Read on for details including a sibling who became his wife!

William and his wives did not give Kody 17 siblings. However, like his own children, Kody was raised in a family of multiple brothers and sisters — nine in all. The reality star has five sisters and four brothers, one of whom tragically passed away on August 24, 2013. He also has at least one stepsister, Janelle Brown.

Sheryl, who died December 7, 2020, married William on October 24, 1992. Janelle was born during Sheryl’s first marriage to Robert Alan Schriever, who died in 1972. It is unknown when they met the Browns, but Janelle and Kody are not blood relatives.

“She ended up meeting Kody’s father, and they ended up falling in love and getting married before Kody and I started getting engaged,” Janelle said in a 2013 episode sister wives.

It is unclear which of the nine children mentioned above has Genielle as a mother. However, according to his obituary, which was prepared after his death on August 24, 2013 at the age of 78, each of them are William’s surviving children.

Kody Brown’s relationship with his siblings is unknown and they do not appear in Sister Wives.

Kody’s five sisters are Cindy Hansen, Lorilyn Brown Beck, Christine King, Tricia Brown Garner, and Leah Nicole Lundquist. None of his sisters are on Instagram, but all (except Christine) have Facebook. It appears from their social media that they are all married or in a relationship and at least three of them have children.

Lorilyn’s current Facebook banner is a family photo of her with her father, Genielle, and all her siblings, including Kody.

The four reality brothers are Scott Allan Brown, Travis Merrill Brown, William Michael Brown and Curtis Taylor Brown. Not too much is known about Scott due to his low social media involvement. However, Travis, William and Curtis went into a relationship. Travis and Curtis both had children, however it is unclear if William had children.

Unfortunately, Curtis passed away on June 17, 2013 in a motorcycle accident. He is survived by his wife, Erica, and three children: Carter, McCayde, and Kinlynn.
