Kody Brown and his four wives already have 16 children. But it’s news about the 17th that shakes up the household on the new season of Sister Wives, which premieres Sunday (9 p.m. ET) on TLC.

A new preview of season 3 shows Brown revealing to the family that his fourth wife, Robyn Sullivan, is pregnant. But not everyone seems thrilled at the announcement.

Later, Sullivan – the first new wife to enter the family in 16 years – breaks down as she recalls the somewhat chilly reception to her news by some of the family’s older children.

“I was looking for a reaction from everybody,” she says. “And it stung a little bit, because I wasn’t really sure at the time, you know, what to think.”

That’s not the only drama the family will face this season. The Browns, including other wives Meri, Janelle and Christine, also have to adjust to their new life in Las Vegas, where they moved this past January, saying they were forced to leave Utah in order to avoid prosecution for felony bigamy.
