Janelle Brown is happier than ever!
The proud mother, who shares six children with her husband, revealed that the couple’s son Hunter would be starting his adult life close to home.
Janelle Brown’s Son Becomes ‘Local-ish’ For The First Time In Years
On Monday, July 25, Janelle updated her Instagram account with a picture of herself and Hunter, looking like two peas in a pod as the mother-son duo smiled sweetly at the camera.
The pair, who bore an uncanny resemblance to each other, stuck closely to themselves for the selfie, but their posing choice was not the only thing that drew them together.
Burning with excitement, the 53-year-old revealed in the post’s caption that she would not have to travel long distances to visit her son as the 25-year-old chose to move close to home. The reality TV star wrote:
“This mommas heart is bursting. My son Hunter is ‘local-ish’ for the first time in 7 years. He was home during Covid for a few months, of course. But now he is truly ‘adulting’ and not very far away from me.”
Many fans echoed similar joy in the comment section, hoping that Hunter’s stay would be permanent, as military life typically separated people from their loved ones.
Janelle’s Son Turns 25!
The news of Janelle’s son’s relocation came after the 25-year-old went down the military route by attending the United States Air Force Preparatory School.
Hunter also pursued a Master’s degree at the John Hopkins University nursing school, which his mother proudly announced in her birthday tribute to the hardworking student.
On February 8, the TLC star shared a carousel of images on Instagram featuring her son on different occasions, including snaps of the celebrant with his mother and his friends.

This heartwarming post was captioned: “Happy Happy 25th Birthday to my son Hunter. To my son, who knows how to work hard and still have goofy fun! I love you, honey.”
Hunter is Janelle’s third child and Kody’s sixth. His five siblings are 27-year-old Logan, 26-year-old Maddie, 23-year-old Garrison, 20-year-old Gabriel, and 17-year-old Savanah.
The “Strive with Janelle” founder joined the polygamist family in 1993 when she spiritually tied the knot with the Brown clan’s patriarch instead of having a legal marriage.
Kody has four other children with his two current wives, Meri and Robyn Brown. The TV personality also has six kids with his ex-wife Christine Brown.
On their TLC series, the family Is working on building individual homes on Coyote Pass, their property in Flagstaff, Arizona. While Janelle, who lived in an RV on the land, would no longer be using the temporary home with her daughter Savanah.
More details about the Brown clan will be shown on the new season of “Sister Wives,” which TLC plans to broadcast on September 11, 2022.

Earlier this year, The Blast reported that Janelle loved being a grandmother as much as she enjoyed being the proud mother of six children.
The 53-year-old confessed in an Instagram post where she showed off one of her two adorable grandchildren, a girl named Evangelynn ‘Evie’ Kodi.
In the picture, the certified health coach sat by a wooden table with her granddaughter, who happily gave the TLC star a bite from a chocolate-covered donut.
The tender moment captured Evie watching her grandma eat the tasty-looking treat while Janelle wrapped a protective arm around the youngster.
According to the “Becoming Sister Wives” co-author, her precious grandchild always insisted on feeding the 53-year-old whatever she ate, a kind gesture that marked one of the great benefits of being a grandparent.
The TV personality concluded her caption by crediting the photographer Haley Manning for capturing the sweet moment alongside hashtags expressing her love for donuts and family time.
Evie is the child of Janelle’s daughter Madison and her husband, Caleb Brush. The toddler also has a brother named Axel James.
