The Winder family from TLC’s Seeking Sister Wife reality series continues to expand! The Winders announced earlier today that Sophie Winder is currently pregnant with a baby girl!
“✨We’re excited to announce…Baby Girl Winder, coming November 2021!” reads the announcement posted on the Winder family and Sophie Winder social media accounts. The announcement was accompanied by a wonderful gallery of images that includes the whole family.
Here’s the gallery:
In addition to the good news about Sophie expecting, the announcement also teases a positive update on her sister wife Tami’s fertility struggles. “We are also excited to share that we have finally been receiving some answers that will help Tami in her fertility journey and are hopeful we will have exciting news to share in the near future,” the Winder family reveals.
Speaking of fertility struggles, that is something that Sophie has dealt with as well. She opened up about the emotional topic in a two-part blog post in late 2019 that coincided with the announcement that she was pregnant with son Ephraim. From our article:
In the first post from November 6, Sophie reveals that her struggles included a chemical pregnancy and a miscarriage. “Here’s to being open and vulnerable and sharing that I am one of the 1 in 4 women who have experienced miscarriage,” Sophie wrote. “Bringing forward pregnancy loss and miscarriage awareness, my heart goes out to all of you that have experienced infertility, pregnancy loss and infant loss. Losing your baby at any stage of pregnancy is one of the worst pains to have to endure.”

Today’s pregnancy announcement comes less than a month after Sophie celebrated her 29th birthday. Colton and Tami shared their happy birthday wishes on Facebook and Instagram:
Today is Sophie’s birthday, and she may be one year older, perhaps a little wiser (as we all are from day to day, we hope), and definitely as beautiful as ever. We’re so grateful to have her in our family. We’re thankful for the role she’s played in our success, and the blessing she’s been to each of us. We love you, Sophie, and hope you have a terrific day! We hope you’ll all join us today in wishing her a wonderful birthday!
Sophie is such an amazing person! She has been such a blessing in my life. She’s a wonderful mother to both our children, she works so hard to make all our dreams and goals happen; she’s a great friend and spouse to both Colton and I. I’m so blessed by having you as a sisterwife. I love you Sophie! Happy birthday 💕
A very appreciative Sophie followed up with her own post thanking everyone for the well wishes:
✨Thank you all so much for all the birthday wishes ♥️ My Golden birthday was perfect! I was able to spend the day with my family. Sadie started the day off with gift giving and doughnuts for breakfast! Colton gave me some beautiful flowers ♥️ and we all went to dinner together. Here’s to the last year of my twenties!✨
Congratulations again to Sophie, Colton and Tami! I’m just like 99% of show viewers in that I am a big fan of the Winder family, and I love seeing good news from them. Speaking of that, I am excited to hear more about the positive progress being made in regards to Tami’s infertility. Perhaps we will be sharing another pregnancy story soon? 🤞
UPDATE – A commenter on our Instagram post about Sophie’s pregnancy proposed an interesting theory: What if Sophie is a surrogate for Tami? Hmmmm…
