Kody Brown, the shaggy-haired patriarch who stars on TLC's Sister Wives, and his fourth wife Robyn, are expecting a baby.
"You should have seen the look on his face when we found out," Robyn tells PEOPLE exclusively. "It was priceless."
The baby, due in mid October, will be the first for Kody and Robyn, who has three children from a previous marriage. This will be the 17th child for the family, which includes Kody's three other wives and their kids. Kody and Robyn, who moved to Las Vegas with the rest of his fundamentalist Mormon family in January, were married last year during the first season of Sister Wives. Kody is also married to Meri, his only legal wife, Janelle, and Christine.

Sister Wives star Kody Brown is used to chaos. After all, he has four wives and 16 kids. But now that Utah authorities are pondering charging him with felony bigamy, Brown is definitely feeling the heat.
"I just hope," Brown tells PEOPLE in its new issue, "they don't put me in jail for loving four women."
Since going public on TLC's Sister Wives about his polygamist lifestyle, the affable 42-year-old ad salesman has found himself at the center of a legal showdown that could land him in prison for up to five years.
Last week, Lehi, Utah, police submitted their findings to the Utah County Attorney, who has yet to decide whether to charge Brown with a crime.

Police in Utah have wrapped up an investigation into the Sister Wives stars for potential felony polygamy and submitted the case to prosecutors to decide whether to file charges.
The case focuses on Kody Brown and his wives Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn, whose lives are depicted on the TLC reality show that premiered last month.
The Utah County Attorney's Office received the case from Lehi, Utah, police on Monday. Polygamy cases are extremely rare in the state and authorities say this one was prompted by the publicity from the show. The maximum penalty for felony polygamy is five years in prison.

Still, their children have mixed feelings about cameras capturing their everyday lives.

Before their legal troubles, the Browns had to deal with different kind of drama at home.
The stars of TLC's Sister Wives, who are under police investigation in Utah for a possible charge of felony bigamy, reveal they clashed over a lip-locking incident.
"Kody sealed the engagement [with his fourth wife Robyn] with a kiss and I freaked," Kody Brown's third wife, Christine, says in a preview of Sunday's new back-to-back episodes (10 p.m. ET). "We didn't kiss until over the altar because I didn't feel right about kissing a married man."
