Garrison, whose legal name is Robert Garrison, was one of six children Janelle, 54, shared with Kody. The twosome are also the parents of Logan, 29, Maddie, 27, Hunter, 26, Gabriel, 21, and Savanah, 18. Garrison appeared on Sister Wives starting in 2010 alongside his parents and siblings.

Over the years, Garrison had a rocky relationship with his father which was documented on the reality series. Sister Wives documented that Garrison and Gabriel didn’t agree with Kody’s strict COVID-19 rules.

Meanwhile, Kody wanted his sons to apologize to his fourth wife, Robyn Brown, after he claimed they were mean to her and he said the boys would not be welcomed at family events if they refused. (Kody legally married Robyn in 2014 after his legal divorce from his first wife, Meri Brown, so he could adopt Robyn’s children from a prior relationship.)

Despite dropping the demand for an apology in season 18, Garrison, Gabriel and Kody still had a strained relationship. In a November 2023 episode of Sister Wives, Kody shared that he was “pretty sad” that he was not close with either Garrison or Gabriel anymore. However, Janelle was hopeful that the trio would make amends in the future.

“Even if they maybe don’t reconcile, but they come to a peace, because I feel like when there’s static in relationships, especially in a parental relationship, it does affect your life,” Janelle exclusively told Us Weekly in November 2023. “It does affect them when they don’t have a good [relationship] with their dad. So, I’m hoping that in the future, things can get better.”
