Welcome To Plathville: Olivia Plath’s Brother Passed Away Suddenly
Ethan’s wife has siblings, but some people feel a bit confused because a Wiki page claims they are called “Lydia, Joshua, Nathan, Sophia, and Elisey.” Fans don’t really know the family of Olivia (nee Meggs) and they don’t appear on the TLC show, But some names overlap. There was a Joshua (deceased) in the Plath family, and there’s a Michah Plath as well. But the recent tragedy didn’t involve him. Instead, it was a sibling of Olivia’s named by the media as Micah Meggs.
Welcome To Plathville fans heard about the TLC star’s brothers before. Back in June last year, Nathan Meggs was arrested for DUI. That could have been a tragedy in the making.

Olivia Plath took to her Instagram Stories and told fans that she would not be available for a while on her social media.
