She's bringing her home to meet the family! As a parent, whenever a kid brings home someone that they're dating to meet the family, it's always generally assumed that the relationship is serious — and that seemed to be the case for Meri Brown and her daughter Mariah! On tonight's episode of Sister Wives, Mariah brings home her girlfriend Audrey Kriss to meet her mom, her dad Kody, his three other wives Janelle, Robyn, and Christine, and the rest of their 17 children. While that may seem like a daunting, overwhelming task for Audrey, she looked like she fit right in with the polygamous family's dynamic.
Mariah and Audrey visited the Brown family in Las Vegas while on a break from college for St. Patrick's Day. In order for the whole family to meet Audrey — who is the first partner that Mariah has introduced to her family since she came out as gay last January — Meri cooked a meal and invited the entire family over.
"Mariah and Audrey have been dating for about three and a half months. They started dating toward the end of December. They’re happy and having fun together," Meri said in a clip. "She’s just glowing, she’s always smiling. It’s really cute."
Meri spent some sweet bonding time with Mariah and Audrey as they helped her cook dinner and Audrey revealed that it was very important for her to spend time with Mariah's family during their visit to Las Vegas. "I love hanging out with the family, so I’m really excited! That’s why I asked Mariah if we could get flights earlier in the day so we could hang out with the family," Audrey said.

As I’ve gotten older, my family sees each other a lot less. We all have our own lives and things going on & while it sometimes makes me sad, I’ve learned to really enjoy the small things with them like cups of coffee early in the morning (or late at night), long car rides full of conversation, the way everyone’s laugh ring together, cooking breakfast with everyone. It makes me feel so grateful for the small moments that leave significant marks on our lives💙 . . . . . . . . . . . . #sappypost #sappy #familygoals #familylove #familytime #love #coffee #conversation #carrides #laughs #smallmoments #smallthings #thankful #grateful #fambam #familyiseverything
The rest of Mariah's siblings started to arrive and Meri observed Audrey as she met each one of them, and it seems like mom approves! "Audrey fits in perfectly. She totally does, because she just has fun with all the kids and jokes around with everybody. She’s a perfect fit," Meri said.
