Remember when Rain Brown had the world thinking she was engaged at the ripe old age of 16? Well, she definitely does. The Alaskan Bush People star fueled so many fan questions in April 2019, after she posted an Instagram picture of her new puppy, Jackson. Cute dogs will always get the spotlight, but viewers couldn’t help but notice the ring on her left ring finger.

As you might expect, fans were soon wondering if she was engaged to a mystery man. The concept itself might seem a little silly, but at the time she was still living in Alaska. In AK, it’s legal to get married at 16 with parental consent, as long as they’re 18 or older. Later on, she added the hashtag “not a wedding ring” to the picture.

Rain Brown has done it once more (used the hashtag, that is). She’s 19 now but still felt the need to let people know she’s not engaged. She posted a selfie to Instagram over the weekend to show off her new hair. The star recently switched up her brunette locks for an all-over blonde look. In the selfie, she’s got her right hand up and on display. She’s wearing rings on her right ring finger and her pointer finger. Even though it’s the opposite hand, and no one seemed to say much about it, she still included the hashtag. If nothing else, it’s a precautionary addition.

Rain Brown Reflects On Family’s Hard Times

2021 was a rough year for the Alaskan Bush People clan, to say the least. Their family farm in Washington was caught in wildfires, and in February of 2021 the father of the clan passed away suddenly. Billy Brown was the patriarch and leader of the Browns, and his presence is greatly missed.

A day after his death, Rain brown posted a heartfelt and sorrowful message to fans: I lost a true friend. Not forever, but only in this world,” she posted. “Please hold my family in your thoughts and prayers, especially my mother. Please hold your family tight for me. Words cannot express how wonderful he was and is. But I will say, the closest thing to an angel I’ve ever known. God bless you da I love and miss you dearly. You will always be my hero. God bless everyone.”

The youngest of seven kids, Rain Brown says that she still feels her dad’s presence. She isn’t the only one, though – she shared that all of the kids still feel him in their own ways. According to Rain, these moments happen when she’s been thinking about her father. “It’s too strange to be a coincidence,” she said.

She and the rest of the Brown clan have committed to fulfilling their patriarch’s legacy and dreams.
