‘Sister Wives’: Maddie Brown and Caleb Brush Undertake a Couple of Big Adventures

Maddie Brown Brush has a lot going on in her life right now. Not only is the 23-year-old preparing to welcome her second child over the summer, but she’s also undertaken a colossal move. When the Brown family left Las Vegas to put down roots in Flagstaff, Arizona, there was no question that Maddie, her husband Caleb and their son, Axel, would not be going with them, but fans never suspected she would take on her own massive move.

In January 2019, Maddie Brown and Caleb Brush packed up their home and headed for North Carolina. Officially East Coast residents, Brown and Brush are now excitedly awaiting the arrival of their second child.

Do Maddie and Caleb know the gender of their second child?

While Maddie’s due date isn’t until August, the family of three have opted to find out the gender of their newest addition. The couple announced that they are expecting a girl in a sweet Instagram post. Maddie and Caleb welcomed their first child, a boy named Axel in May of 2017.

According to People, the couple is ecstatic to be expecting a little girl to add to their family but being so far away from the Brown family seems to sting a bit. Janelle recently opened up about the difficulty she had with having to leave her grandson behind when Kody led the plural family 250 miles away. Axel is currently the family’s only grandchild.

Why did Maddie and Caleb move to North Carolina?

Maddie and Caleb didn’t exactly have ties to Las Vegas, and once the Brown’s headed off to Arizona, there was little reason to stay in Sin City. The couple, who were married in Bozeman, Montana in 2016, quickly packed up and headed out on their new adventure. According to The Ashley, their move to the East Coast was a calculated one. Caleb works as a mine equipment repairman and was offered a new position in Greenville.

While they seem to be settling in nicely, it appears that there was some anxiety surrounding the decision. After all, the young couple is leaving behind their entire family and putting 2,000 miles between them. They both noted that while they were excited about forging their own path, living in a location with no family is anxiety-inducing.

Do Maddie and Caleb plan to take on sister wives?

Eagle-eyed fans revealed that Maddie Brown and Caleb Brown were related through marriage before they became husband and wife. Caleb’s sister, Erica Brush Brown married Curtis Brown, the brother of Kody Brown, long before Caleb and Maddie ever met. Curtis Brown, however, died tragically in a motorcycle accident in 2013.

Regardless of the familial collection, both Caleb and Maddie seem to agree that a plural lifestyle is not for them. While they are clearly open to the idea of children, they don’t seem to be interested in adding sister wives and sister moms to the mix anytime in the future.
