Sister Wives star Robyn Brown faced a lot of ridicule from TLC fans for employing a nanny when she and her husband are home full time. Plus, three of her children are old enough to babysit. So, no one could understand why she needed this nanny… until now.
Sister Wives: Robyn Brown Caught on Camera
For Robyn Brown, that old saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words” fits in nicely for a recent photo making the rounds online. An unknown fan saw Robyn and Kody Brown out and about with their kids, and they took a photo of the group.
One of the first things fans seem to notice is Kody Brown. Comments from Sister Wives’ fans suggest that he looks a bit disenchanted. It also appears as if Robyn is directing their family on where to go, as she’s pointing her finger.
In the middle of all of this is the nanny, Mindy Jessop. It seems obvious that she’s performing a particular duty. It’s a duty most moms and dads find themselves doing when on an outing with kids.
But not Kody or Robyn during this outing. Also, fans point out that the nanny looks about as excited as the Sister Wives patriarch does. You can get a glimpse of this in the photos below.
Robyn’s Nanny Perplexes Fans
Remember the big hoopla over Robyn’s nanny? Christine Brown made the saying “What does the Nanny do” famous for a few weeks across social media.
That’s because it was hard to understand where this Sister Wives nanny fits in. With Kody and Robyn home full-time and three kids who are old enough to help out, people became perplexed.
Solomon Brown, 11, and Ariella Brown, 7, are Robyn’s youngest two kids. They are past the ages where kids wear diapers, so that’s not most likely not a task any longer.
The fourth wife’s two youngest kids are too old for bottles, so middle-of-the-night feedings are also likely out. So, the kids probably don’t wake her up in the middle of the night, disturbing this mom’s sleep.
While it looks like wife number four and her husband can easily share in the childcare, Robyn said she won’t bother her Sister Wives hubby. That’s because he has a full plate. So, this is why they’ve employed a nanny.
Now it looks as if Sister Wives fans get to see more of this in the new season. Especially since Kody is down to one wife. He confirmed his new monogamous lifestyle recently.
It seemed Robyn kept the nanny under wraps for a while. Maybe she knew that she’d get backlash. That she did, once fans found out she employed a nanny when she was a stay-at-home mom.
Sister Wives: So What Does the Nanny Do?
This new photo of Robyn, Kody, and their two youngsters seems to indicate the nanny helps out by carrying their coats around behind them. Fans noticed that Mindy doesn’t appear too happy in this photo.
But the camera only captured a few seconds in time for this Sister Wives family. So, while smiles are missing, and they look as if they are not having fun, you need to keep in mind these photos offer only a quick glance.

But fans saw plenty of smiles through the decade of Sister Wives seasons, like the ones above. That’s back when four wives seemed to adore their shared husband.
Today it’s only Kody and Robyn Brown. Still, the fans got a quick look at one of the tasks Mindy performs. And it looks like they may see more of this when Season 18 debuts on TLC in September.
