Warning: Sister Wives Season 17 spoilers ahead.
Kody Brown worries for Janelle and Savanah
At the beginning of the Sister Wives Season 17 Premiere, Janelle Brown reveals her boys have COVID. She worries she’s been exposed and might end up with COVID. She, however, remains hopeful she was lucky enough to keep her distance and avoid it.
Later in the episode, a very watery-eyed Janelle Brown reveals she got tested after feeling sick. She tested positive for COVID-19. Things get worse for Janelle when she learns Savanah also had COVID. Janelle admits that she knows she isn’t in the best condition heath-wise. And, she hopes she’ll be able to get through COVID as smoothly as possible
Talking to the camera, Kody Brown describes Janelle and his daughter Savanah having COVID as an “unknown” situation. He admits he’s stressed out and he’s worried for his family. He hopes Janelle and Savanah will be able to survive COVID and get better quickly. There, however, is nothing he can do but wait it out and see what happens.
He has also had COVID
As Sister Wives fans know, Kody Brown has also had COVID-19. Fans suspect he got it from his nanny as it was around the same time he and Robyn learned she also had COVID. Fans thought it was a bit ironic that Kody got COVID after placing such strict rules on the family. On Cameo, Kody Brown did admit battling COVID wasn’t easy. He, however, recovered and was doing better than ever.
Are you surprised to learn both Janelle and her daughter Savanah Brown had COVID? Considering how large the Brown family is, statistically it makes sense that some of the family would get COVID regardless of how careful they were or weren’t being.
