The 21-year-old has had quite an eventful storyline during Season 8 of the hit reality TV series, and she’s allowed cameras to document everything about her engagement and wedding to her husband Caleb Brush. But now that she gave birth to their first child – a son named Axel — in May, TLC is considering giving the couple their very own show!
“Viewers adore the pair and TLC is getting lots of sponsorship offers, so they want to do a show with Maddie and Caleb,” an insider reveals exclusively to Life & Style. “People love Maddie because she is so down-to-earth and Caleb because he is such an outdoorsman. They make the perfect couple.”
Sister Wives documents the lives of the polygamous Brown family, spearheaded by patriarch Kody Brown. Kody has four wives — Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn Brown — and Maddie is his oldest daughter with Janelle. But Maddie and Caleb’s spinoff would be more focused on their lives as a married couple and their experience as first-time parents.
Although the paperwork hasn’t been signed yet, TLC has been sharing a lot of Maddie and Caleb-centric content on their YouTube page. The couple introduced viewers to their baby boy in a video clip back in May, and they opened up about what it was like seeing and holding little Axel for the first time.
“It was a bunch of relief cause I was done with labor, it was surreal,” Maddie gushed and her hubby said it was an “emotional” experience.
“I was crying ‘cause I was just in love with this little boy,” Caleb revealed.
Maddie gave birth to Axel on May 20 during a home birth in her parents’ home in Las Vegas, and Kody and Janelle opened up about what it was like to watch their daughter give birth to their very first grandchild.
“Having Maddie give birth in our home was pretty intense,” Kody told TLC cameras. “It was interesting because we were all there together. Everybody was kind of cheering her on — I think honestly she was drawing strength somehow from all of us being there.”
