How do I repair a couch brace?

by Mari

As you can kind of see in the photo, this support piece on the bottom of our sectional is broken. it has been repaired before and the wood is weak. I’m not a carpenter and have NO clue what to do. My husbands family is coming in tomorrow and they are not small people. I’m afraid someone will go straight through!! Lol

So sorry for the bad pics, but in the part you cannot see, the wooden brace was just held in to the top beam by multiple nails and has pulled away from all of them. Help!!!
