"We are both very happy with our baby and the success of our home delivery. We were excited [sister wife] Robyn [Brown] could join us via Zoom for the whole labor," Tony, 26, tells PEOPLE. "My wife's the strongest person I know and it shows." 

They've said elsewhere that they filmed the birth for TLC.  How is looking at Robyn's enormous neck and sequins baseball cap on Zoom via someone's cell phone or laptop any type of dramatic enhancement to a birth?  Of course, I don't want to see either.  

Also, Truely was actually in St. George during the delivery, based on the People photos.  Will she get the AuroraBreanna moment of listening to the labor pains through the closed bedroom door and then screaming with delight at the last groan?  A 10-year old, first-time aunt, meeting her niece would be a more engaging aspect of this storyline, and it would give Truely the chance to have her own couch interview (although I think that Tony would be right there).

It's interesting that Robyn's baby fever struck immediately before or around the same time as Mykelti & Tony's decision to start their family.  Also, Meri, Janelle and Kody were about 3 hours away in Rocky Ridge for Bonnie's funeral two days earlier, but Janelle and Kody returned to Flagstaff instead.  (I'd expect Meri to have tended to her own matters at that time.)

A footnote from the People article: "The baby was born weighing 9 lbs. and measured 20.5 inches."

Kody and Bonus Mom Christine flew to North Carolina on last-minute tickets for the birth of Maddie's daughter.  Kody may have flown back and forth twice, because he claimed he had to be back in Flagstaff.  It was a much longer distance and difficult travel based on panicked speculation.  They both claimed that they had to be there or wanted to be there for the new mother and that they would assist her and play with Axel.  Christine even took the burden of Kody off of Janelle, pronouncing that it was one of the benefits of polygamy for all the lowly monogamist viewers.

Mykelti's due date was in March, and she hadn't given birth by March 31, when Kody and Bonus Mom Janelle were much closer geographically.  Bonus Mom Janelle didn't reciprocate for her sister wife Christine in a near-identical situation (daughter delivering a granddaughter and child that also needed attention).  Nor did she stay in Utah to comfort or assist her sister wife Meri in a situation that she herself experienced 3 months earlier.  Their lack of reciprocity and compassion, as well as their seemingly complete disregard, for their bonus daughter and sister wives are more significant than the timespan between events.  

Either the birth or funeral would have overridden whatever other possible schedule conflict that either Kody or Janelle would have had back in Flagstaff.  Neither has a job or is a salaried employee, and both are limiting their activities due to COVID.  In fact, Janelle returned from the funeral for an exercise session a day or more later that lasted less than an hour.  Even Robyn somehow managed to rearrange her schedule of doing nothing to watch the entire birthing process via Zoom.

Notably, St. George is halfway between Flagstaff and Salt Lake City, where they daytripped to whine to the Dargers.  

Let's see if they count Avalon's April 5th birthday as the first in the birthday month.

I was scrolling through Insta and came across this post and wondered who these old people were with a baby. It’s Tony and Mykelti. Oops!

Wow has Mykelti been a chameleon this pregnancy.

She's looked like multiple different family members (Christine) and siblings (Gwyn, Aspyn, etc.) in various photos.  And now in this one I see a lot of Mariah.

And Christine sure looks over the moon in many of the pictures when she's holding the baby.  Maybe having a grandbaby on top of Kody being a jerk will get her to leave him.  (Not that I want her remaining kids at home uprooted again, but I think they'd all do better away from toxic Kody at this point)

It's possible this has more to do with Mykelti's wishes than anything else. Mykelti hasn't seemed particularly close to Janelle whereas Maddie was raised by Christine. Additionally it was known that Maddie's daughter had potential medial complications - so it would make sense to call in more support. 

And I could serious see Mykelti telling Kody to visit later. No need for Dad to watch her give birth.

And of course support for Meri? They don't really like Meri so the fact that Kody and Janelle showed up meets the expectation. I do wonder why Robyn wasn't there. Pregnant perhaps?

But how did Mykelti, Tony and the midwife even know what to do without Kody there explaining how babies are born, like he did with Caleb?  It's a wonder Mykelti still isn't trying to push that baby out without the benefit of Kody's mansplaining yammering wisdom.

Mykelti and Tony already announced that the birth was being filmed for the show.  Kody wouldn't allow them to block his opportunity to be on camera, with his soulmate children, explaining and directing the birth, even if Mykelti screamed, "It's my body and my choice!" like Truely.

Kody had even less of an excuse for an absence, since Robyn was at home, watching on Zoom and taking care of their children.  If Kody was there at or shortly after the delivery, it would have been a convenient excuse for him to avoid or escape Meri in mourning.

She does have small children who have probably never been left with anyone else.  But Grandma and Grandpa Sullivan could have watched them.  Then again they are not in the family bubble.

I agree, they could, but I don't think Robyn asks them to do that.  Which is why Kody probably lives with her most of the time.  She needs another full time adult helping her.  I think she really misses having Mindy around to help out.  I wonder who does all the cleaning in the million dollar mansion?

If Aurora is 18, shouldn’t she be of marriageable age in their religion/culture? I had to look after my baby brother and cousins at 12/13– although not overnight. How old was Robyn when she married that “cookie-stealer” Jessop? I think Robyn wants to juvenilize her kids for as long as possible.

Areola is still sucking away on a pacifier.  They uprooted the whole family to follow Day'n to college. I would be shocked if Sobyn gave her kids any kind of responsibility before they are 30. 

For all we know, the whole gang is still co-sleeping.

So it still looks like Kody hasn’t been there to visit yet based off of Instagram. I will give him the benefit of the doubt that maybe he is waiting 2 weeks in quarantine after attending Bonnie’s funeral to visit his new grandchild.

They're not true, religious, polygamists. They're more like the assholes on Seeking Sister Wife. If they were devout about their polygamist faith, they would be devastated about the chosen lifestyles of most of their adult children. But they don't care at all.

I don't recall Kody caring much about Mykelti, except to criticize her clothing choices occasionally.

He could have thanked/mentioned a number of people; Most certainly Christine, and if not for her, the midwife who helped them through the birth. Definitely not someone who attended via Zoom (I'm sure she had it on mute the whole time!). Mind you, if Robyn had really really wanted to be there, she would have been there! No matter what....A rather cheap way of earning extra Brownie points if you ask me.

“People” might have edited down a longer comment, too.

So on Mykelti’s Instagram live post, she mentioned that Neither Meri or Janelle have seen the baby, and she will have to try and schedule a FaceTime call with them down the line. 
 

now that’s bad. Are you telling me that Janelle has been so busy the last week that she couldn’t FaceTime for a minute to see the new baby?

She's a cute baby, but that bath pic is too much.  Also, I'm old, so some of the things I was told might be out of date, but I thought you shouldn't take a bath after giving birth until you've had time to heal.  Also, I thought you weren't supposed to get the cord wet on the newborn.  I remember doing sponge baths until that happened with my children.

Christine is close with Janelle's kids but the reverse definitely isn't true.

Christine's kids seem close with Robyn, but no one else - which is interesting because we never really saw how that developed.  

This family is not one family and they haven't been for a long time. So it's weird to me they keep trying to sell that idea on the show - especially Janelle now - who didn't even FT with Mykelti.

I take it you mean the picture with the baby in the bath tub? Though I do agree there is no need to post everything on social media (def no bathroom pictures), the bathing with the baby is harmless if you ask me. Close to mummy (I hope) with her head high enough. Definitely not lower than when you hold a baby whilst bathing it in its own baby bath. Besides, she can't go anywhere. Lots of mums (and dads) bathe or shower with their babies.

If anything concerns me, it is taking a bath so shortly after giving birth. It is strongly advised not to, where I am from. Just shower until everything has healed because of infection. Oh and maybe no phone whilst washing baby??

It just seems so unnecessary to me.  Bodies are slippery when wet and even in a shower, how could one properly soap and rinse themselves or the baby while having a firm grip.  There are many other ways to bond with baby.  Besides, that may be the only chance mom gets to have a relaxing shower and shampoo while baby naps.

Along with the fact Mykelti probably should take a shower instead, if it were me I’d have the baby facing the other way.

Having the baby’s ears out of the water would be a good idea, also.

Loved your comment on having some proper mom-time! So true!

As for washing the baby: I guess it probably has more to do with personal preferences. Some of us prefer bathing, others hate it and only use showers. Oh btw; (baby) bodies get slippery when being washed no matter what method you use...😉 So always handle with care, preferably without a telephone in hand.

I think Christine is just the most loving person in the family, and that explains why everyone else’s kids love her, but her kids don’t need to get any outside love beyond their own mom, so they don’t seem close to the other moms. I think Truely is close with Solomon because they are close in age, and Robyn’s two youngest kids are the only kids Truely gets to be a big sister to. There’s also a big gap between her and her other siblings. Also, because Christine really does consider herself a mom to everyone in the family, she would have passed that on to her kids, making them all naturally kind enough to make a big deal out of Robyn’s older daughters’ quarantine birthdays and naturally nurturing enough to care for Sol and Ari. Christine always strikes me as so open and warm, which is why her feelings about her role in the family are so sad. The way she openly hugged and enjoyed her time with the other polygamous family and then also Audrey’s parents during the wedding planning was so different than the other Brown adults. She would have SUCH a better life outside this mess. Someone get her some real therapy, a nice boyfriend, and an interest or hobby that would come with a set of nice friends to hang out with.

Bringing it back to Mykelti, I’m sure the baby will be fine. Everyone parents their own way, and everyone makes their own mistakes too. Nothing in that bathtub photo is alarming. They seem like a sweet, happy little family bonding with their beautiful baby.

Why is Avalon laying on the seat of a car?  I'm trying to figure out any scenario where I would bring my baby into my car for a photo.  I'm not suggesting that's how they drive her around, but it's so odd.  And Mykelti is going to let the baby's hair figure itself out?  It's baby hair, it's going to change.  Don't worry about it.

Also, given what's going on in the world of the Duggars, I find the hashtagging of your 5-week old child's name inappropriate.  JMO.

I think that's what she's doing.  Some people try to use products to make a baby's hair cooperate and lay down especially if they have hair that stands straight up, but she's just letting Avalon's hair do what it does.

Probably just had her diaper changed while at the beach.  Some modesty is nice and better than people who change them on public picnic tables.  If Avalon was born in a tub, she may have an affinity for water.  A sunbonnet would be nice unless it is a very short visit.

In the first photo, she looks dry and the second one looks like she has been dipped in the water, her hair and skin appear wet.  Babies do not develop a shiver response to naturally warm themselves until about 5-6 months.  It can be very dangerous to expose an infant to less than body temperature water.
