Tears of joy! Kody Brown has three wives and 16 children, but now his brood is getting even bigger. The polygamist and star of Sister Wives was recently granted permission to legally adopt his wife Robyn’s children from a previous marriage.

In a new sneak-peek clip, moderator Tamron Hall sits down with the family to talk about the emotional moment, saying, “I’ve never see you cry.”

An overjoyed Kody can’t hold back his tears, saying, “There’s a sense, a feeling that everything’s so perfectly right, after that experience.”

“How much of a weight is off your shoulders?” Hall asks.

“Well, technically I’m carrying those three extra kids now,” Kody quips, later responding seriously, “You know what, it was magical. It was just so surreal and I was spinning… I’m just waiting for the other foot to drop.”

It was a happy moment for the family, but now-ex-wife Meri, who filed for divorce earlier this year and was the victim of an online catfishing situation shortly afterward, remained quiet throughout.

Watch the clip to see what she says when Hall asks her about her silence.

Sister Wives airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
