Kody Brown, pictured here with his four wives, has a brand new baby boy to take care of. Fourth wife Robyn Brown, pictured here on the right in a floral shirt, gave birth at 2:02 a.m. Wednesday morning in the couple's home in Las Vegas.

The baby boy, who has been given the name Solomon, weighed in at 9 pounds, 10.5 ounces, and is 22 inches long. "He's perfect and we couldn't be happier," Kody Brown tells People magazine. "We are so thrilled."

Baby Solomon joins a blended family of 16 siblings. Kody is legally married to Meri, with whom he has 16-year-old daughter Mariah. He and Janelle (the first of Kody's wives brought into the family by spiritual union) are parents of Logan, 17, Madison, 15, Hunter, 14, Garrison, 13, Gabriel, 10, and Savanah, 6. The 43-year-old Kody and Christine share children Aspyn, 16, Mykelti, 15, Paedon, 13, Gwendyln, 10, Ysabel, 8, and Truely, 1.

Robyn Brown, who wed Kody on the season one finale of Sister Wives, has children Dayton, 11, Aurora, 9, and Breanna, 7, from a previous marriage. With the birth of baby Solomon, she is now the mother of four.

News of Robyn's pregnancy was confirmed in April when Kody shared, "I'm overjoyed. This connects Robyn and I together in a way that nobody can take away." Fans of TLC's Sister Wives watched Kody and Robyn announce her pregnancy to their large family on the season two premiere episode.

Congratulations to Kody Brown, Robyn and the entire Sister Wives family on the baby news!
