SISTER WIVES Aspyn Brown is engaged to Mitch Thompson

Sister Wives Aspyn and Mitch engaged

The Browns are quickly gaining on the Duggars for the title of TLC reality show family with the most engagement announcements! The latest Sister Wives star all set to tie the knot is Aspyn, daughter of Kody and his third wife Christine. 22-year-old Aspyn said “yes” to her 25-year-old burly beau Mitch Thompson during a romantic proposal in Seattle just before the new year.

“We got dressed up and took a walk to the waterfront before dinner, where he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him,” Aspyn tells People of the question popping. ” I was so happy, I said yes immediately and pulled him up to kiss me before he could even put on the ring.”

Here are some photos of the couple in Seattle posted the day before Mitch proposed:

Aspyn and Mitch (full name David Mitchell Thompson) met while the Browns still lived in Utah, and later reconnected at a rally. “We were raised in the same church group, and I had a little crush on him,” Aspyn reveals. “We went different directions until a rally some of my family attended in Utah, where we both happened to be. My dad’s brother asked what ever happened between us, which was nothing, because neither of us did anything about it. So I decided to call him.”

Mitch, who works as a carpenter, still resides in Lehi, Utah. It’s unclear what the couple’s plans are as far as a wedding date or location. “The dream wedding is anytime, anyplace just as long as we are getting married to each other,” Aspyn says.



One thing that viewers (and Kody) should be prepared for as far as the wedding is that Mitch is all about his Scottish roots and has been quite vocal on social media about his fondness for kilts. (I’ve got $20 that says we see Kody wearing a kilt at the ceremony with bagpipes playing.)

In their announcement video (included below), the couple reveal that they are already making plans to move in together — which I assume will be in Utah.

Aspyn’s mom Christine and a couple of Christine’s sister wives took to Twitter to share the People article and express their joy over the news being made public:

UPDATE – A tweet from Kody:

Congratulations to Aspyn and Mitch! I’m a huge fan of all the Brown daughters and I’m thoroughly enjoying the wedding parade! Of course, I’m like everyone else in that I am just counting down the years until the biggest reality television event of the century: Truely’s wedding. 😉

Here’s the video announcement from Aspyn and Mitch, as shared by TLC me:

    The Brown kids seem normal, unlike the Duggars it doesn’t seem like they were forced into their parents weird cult. And their parents let them too, I’ve never heard any of them make a huge deal over none of the kids wanting a plural marriage. Now if a Duggar kid chose a different lifestyle from their parents….

    3 girls in a row getting married and he’s paying college tuition….I bet Kody is super glad Sister Wives is back on the air!

    The difference between them and the Duggars, is that these kids actually get to know their spouses beforehand, and are allowed to make their own decisions regarding who they marry. They’re also allowed to be who they want, and aren’t forced to follow in their parent’s ideals in terms of religion and procreation. Did I mention that all of their kids are smart, well-written and seemingly happy? I still don’t see polygamy as normal, but this is style miiiiles better than the Duggars.
