‘Sister Wives’ star Meri Brown dramatically revealed deep loneliness caused her to have an online affair. Now husband Kody Bown and sister-wife Robyn are ready to show how loved she is by possibly naming their unborn baby after her, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY report.
Meri Brown, 44, shocked her Sister Wives family when she admitted she’d been the victim of “catfishing” on the season finale, which airs on TLC Nov. 15. Meri sat down with Kody Brown and her sister wives to divulge what really went down during her online love connection, admitting she did it because she was so lonely. Now all is forgiven and not only has her family come together in support, HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that Kody and pregnant Robyn Brown are considering naming their new daughter after Meri. How sweet!
Following lonely Meri’s catfishing scandal, “They’ve all vowed to make sure she never feels that way again, since she came clean the whole family has rallied around her to show their love. There’s even been talk about naming the new baby girl after her. It would be a tribute to her, to let her know how important she still is,” source tells Hollywoodlife.com EXCLUSIVELY. What an honor that would be.
“Meri would love it if they name the baby after her, it would show her that they’ve truly forgiven her and maybe then she’d be able to forgive herself,” our source continued. Meri admitted that she’d sought out love online in early 2015, only to later find out that the man she thought she was developing feelings for turned out to be a woman in Oklahoma who was catfishing her.
There’s another reason that Robyn and Kody should feel thankful for Meri. She made the gut-wrenching sacrifice to legally divorce her husband in early 2015, paving the way for Kody to tie the knot with Robyn in more than just a spiritual sense. Meri’s decision meant that Kody could formally adopt Robyn’s three children from her first marriage. Sadly, Robyn’s first husband rarely saw the children and paid nothing for their support. Now her kids receive insurance and benefits since Kody is now legally their dad.
