Not ready to give his blessing. Kody Brown reveals his mixed feelings about daughter Mykelti Brown tying the knot with her boyfriend during Sister Wives‘ season premiere on Sunday, November 27, as seen in Us Weekly‘s exclusive sneak peek.
The TLC series’ preview clip shows Kody, 48, laying down some ground rules before Tony Padron pops the question to Mykelti, 20, who is Kody’s daughter with third wife Christine Brown.
“I definitely was nervous to ask Kody to step aside for me to go talk about Mykelti,” Padron tells the camera. “I mean, who wouldn’t be?”
Kody tells him, “I’d like to give you my blessing, but I’d like to give you just a couple requests.… One thing I would like — and this is going to be a hard one for you, I think — I would like your commitment that you would never discourage your children from plural marriage. I would never want my grandchildren being separated from me.”
Padron says to the camera, “I notice that Kody didn’t say yes right away, so that was kind of a bummer.” He adds, “I respect Kody’s wishes because I was raised Catholic, and I converted to Mormonism back when I was 17. If I had been taught that other options aside from Catholicism were a bad thing, I may have never ended up where I am now.”
But Kody isn’t done and tells his would-be son-in-law: “The other thing I’d like you to consider is, I think that you need time before you get married. And I’m thinking more likely 10 months to a year.”
Watch the clip above to see how Padron feels about putting off the nuptials. Sister Wives returns to TLC on Sunday, November 27, at 8 p.m. ET.
