What is Leon Brown of 'Sister Wives' doing now? Apparently, enjoying life as a newlywed.

Leon said "I do" to their longtime partner Audrey Kriss on Oct. 29, 2022 in Colorado, per People.

Both spouses have stayed mum on the nuptials, but aren't shy when it comes to gushing about one another.

Leon previously called Audrey "the one," while Audrey took to Instagram to praise Leon in a 2022 post, writing in part, "Through it all we've been there with each other and there is no one else I want to do life with. Being your partner and watching your growth and coming into yourself over the years has been an honor and joy."

Leon Brown revealed they underwent top surgery.

In addition to getting married, the past few years have brought other changes to Leon's life.

On Jan. 22, 2023, Leon took to TikTok to reveal they underwent gender-affirming top surgery. In the video, they stood topless in their kitchen while preparing coffee and bread and butter. (The original video is no longer available because their account has since been set to private.)

Leon narrated the video (per The U.S. Sun) with: "These little tasks like blooming the coffee in my French press and putting some butter on a yummy sourdough slice become rituals, little pockets of my day where I see how much beauty, how much divinity is in the mundane, is in these little pockets of time that we so easily pass over."

They continued: "It reminds me of when I was little and I saw the movie Click for the first time. I was mortified to see Adam Sandler's character fast-forwarding through these little moments of his life. It is the little moments that become the big moments and missing them is like missing your whole life."

Leon Brown came out as trans in a touching Instagram post in 2022.

In a social media post that has amassed nearly 20,000 likes in under 24 hours, Leon explained they were "pretty young" the first time they knew they weren't a girl. "Unfortunately, I grew up in a context that was incredibly gendered and restrictive," they continued. "So I continued to be socialized as a girl and later a woman."

"I'm finally ready to share my favorite self with the world," they wrote. "And that self is incredibly genderqueer, trans, and unapologetic."

"Being queer and trans are definitely some of my favorite parts of myself," Leon added. "And yet, there are so many things that I am learning to love about myself through this process. Here's to me getting to know myself, share myself, and continually evolve to be the person I am, to be my favorite self in all contexts."

Shortly after Leon published their photos on Instagram, future spouse Audrey Kriss voiced their support by sharing Leon's post with stickers that read, "Love you now and always" accompanied by the trans flag. Audrey themself came out as transgender on Dec. 4, 2021, in a statement posted to Instagram.

Leon clarified at the bottom of their post that they are sharing this part of themself "to let folks in, and also to set some boundaries." They concluded: "If you choose not to use my correct name or pronouns, then you do not need to speak to or about me. My name is Leo or Leon, and my pronouns are they/them. Please only refer to me in that way."

The self-described "radical humanist" has earned the support of their mom, Meri Brown, Kody's first wife, who was legally married to him until 2014 when they dissolved their marriage so Kody could marry Robyn and adopt her three children. In an Instagram story, Meri shared Leon's post along with a sticker that reads, "You are my sunshine."
