The polygamist family is expecting baby number 18

The famous polygamist family featured in the Discovery show Sister Wives is growing.

Kody Brown and his fourth wife, Robyn, announced today they are pregnant with their second child together. They told People, "We are so happy to announce an eagerly expected new member of the Brown family!"

If you're counting, that will make 18 kids for this clan. Watch out, Duggars — they just may pass you.

Kody told the magazine he has learned a few things about dealing with pregnant women over the years. "I try to always be kind and tender, but when a woman is expecting, you have to be ultra-sensitive. And always do the dishes."

That's a good start, I suppose. And with all those other wives to pitch in, hopefully Robyn will be able to get the rest and relaxation she needs. I don't plan to become a sister wife anytime soon, but if I was going to be pregnant again, that's one time I sure wouldn't mind a few extra helpful wives around.

Congratulations to the family.
