Kody Brown has said it many times at this point.
Like, MANY, MANY, MANY times.
She’s delighted she left Kody Brown and has no regrets about making this life-changing decision; in fact, she wishes she had done so years ago.
But here’s what we’ve learned thus far:
Christine’s children are also glad their mom moved back home to Utah in late 2021.
“I have 100% approval [from] my kids,” Christine told Us Weekly on Tuesday, October 18.
“They all see that I’m much happier now and I’m accessible to them…
“I live five minutes from [daughter] Aspyn and half an hour from [daughter] Mykelti and I see them all the time. So they all love it. We love it.”
Kody and the TLC celebrity have six boys and daughters:
Aspyn (27), Mykelti (26), Gwendlyn (21), Ysabel (19), Truely (12), and Paedon (24).
On the most recent episode of Sister Wives, Ysabel stated that she isn’t very close to her father.
“I don’t know what it is. I don’t think I’m that big an ogre,” Kody said on the same installment, showing a total lack of self-awareness.
“I don’t know why she’s not talking to me. I’m open to her.”
Truely overheard a phone call in which Christine stated last year that she was leaving her spiritual spouse on an earlier Season 17 episode.
“I think I was more devastated than [Kody] was about how [Truely] found out,” Brown added to Us on October 18.
“When he came over and spoke with her the next day, she’d already kind of processed that we were getting a divorce and were moving and was super sad.”
Christine added in this interview that she has no plans too reconcile with Kody.
Elsewhere, while Kody has been claiming that Christine blindsided him about a year ago when she announced her decision, the latter calls BS on that allegation in this sit-down.
“The last year for sure, we definitely had the conversations where it was like, ‘I just don’t think this is working,’” she tells Us.
“And we’d get together and we could just tell there really wasn’t anything there anymore.
“And my kids saw, and they noticed.”
As for where things stand at the moment?
“I don’t think it’s coparenting yet, but we, you know, communicate back and forth,” Christine says of Kody’s non-existent presence in Truely’s life these days.
On November 2, 2021, the mother of six wrote on Instagram:
After more than 25 years together, Kody and I have grown apart and I have made the difficult decision to leave.
We will continue to be a strong presence in each other’s lives as we parent our beautiful children and support our wonderful family.
