Sister Wives star Meri Brown took to Instagram yesterday to wish her pride and joy Mariah a happy birthday. As those who follow the TLC star knows, Mariah is the daughter of Meri and Kody Brown. According to her very sweet tribute to her daughter, Mariah turned 25 years old yesterday!
Meri Brown dotes on her beautiful daughter on her birthday.
This type of birthday is pretty bittersweet for most parents. These parents enjoy celebrating bringing their children into the world. They enjoy reflecting on all the wonderful years. But, they don’t like how much older than feel when they are celebrating their child moving through adulthood. Meri Brown, however, had nothing but great things to say as she wished Mariah happy birthday.
The sweet birthday tribute came attached to an adorable photo of her daughter as a baby. As a bonus, the post was a collection of three photos. Fans also got to see a second baby photo of Mariah as well as a photo of her when she was a few years older.
As we previously reported, Meri was a bit taken back by the fact that Mariah was the spitting image of a great-great-great grandmother named Sarah in her family tree.
The Sister Wives star admitted she felt “blessed,” “lucky,” and “fortunate” to have Mariah as a daughter. Mama Brown was exceptionally proud of the woman she had grown up to be.
She feels deep and loves hard. She cares passionately.”
Meri Brown continued to gush: “She fights for her beliefs and her rights. She stands up for the underdog.”

July 29, 1995 10:02 AM 7 lb 12 oz 21 inches Just numbers to some, but to me, the world's best numbers, for those numbers were the ushering in to this world, my miracle. A quarter of a century today. 25 years of my sweet kid gracing us with her presence. 25 years of happiness and love. 25 years getting to be her mom. I consider myself blessed and lucky and fortunate to have her. She has brought me so much joy!! She feels deep and loves hard. She cares passionately. She fights for her beliefs and her rights. She stands up for the underdog. She always has. She always will. Just a few memories in these photos, but a lifetime of them in my heart. I am grateful, honored, and proud to be Mom to this amazing human. Happiest of Birthdays to my Sunshine, my Punky Poo girl, my Mariah!! @MariahBrwn 💙💙💙 #HappyBirthday #BestKidEver #MyDaughter #Memories #25Years
Meri added as she concluded her sweet tribute: “Just a few memories in these photos, but a lifetime of them in my heart. I am grateful, honored, and proud to be Mom to this amazing human.”
Did she intentionally snub Kody Brown?
Per InTouch Weekly, some fans couldn’t help but notice Meri Brown seemed to snub her husband Kody in the tribute. More specifically, there was no mention of him anywhere in the tribute. While the tribute really had nothing to do with him as it was a tribute to their daughter… Some Sister Wives fans found it a little odd that his name wasn’t at least mentioned somewhere in the post. After all, this was his daughter too.
A quick scroll through Kody Brown’s Twitter reveals he hasn’t been active in over a week. So, if he did wish his daughter a happy birthday. He didn’t do it on social media.
Her followers wished Mariah a happy birthday.
Meri Brown’s fathers were happy to join her in showering her daughter with sweet birthday wishes.
“Beautiful words Meri.. What an amazing and loving young woman your Mariah is… lucky you and well done you!! Happy happy birthday Mariah, I hope you have the best day ever…” One follower gushed.
