Alaskan Bush People star Bear Brown honors his late father with a special nickname for his son in an emotional post.
Bear Brown’s Touching Post
Bear Brown posted a photo for his young son, River Anthony Billy Isaiah Brown, as the family celebrates his first birthday. In the proud father’s post, he reveals the nickname he has given River in honor of his father, Billy Brown.
“Today is my boy’s first Birthday!!! River is officially one year old! I’ve also taken to calling him Little Billy, in honor of Da, I know without a doubt, my Dad would be proud of me!”
Bear Brown continues, highlighting what an amazing father Billy was to him and his six siblings. Bear also says his dad was wise, headstrong, caring, loving, as well as a God-fearing man.
“I will try my hardest to be as good as a dad as he was! Someone who was always there for me, someone who always had the right answer, no matter how silly or serious the question, someone who always stood up for what he believed in! Someone that helped everyone he came across, someone that cared about people that didn’t care about him, someone that truly loved life! And believed in God with all his heart!
Bear Brown says that he hopes to follow in Billy’s likeness someday. He finished the post by wishing his son a happy birthday once again and expressing his love for his only child.
“I have large boots to fill! And I will give my all to try to fill them!!!! Happy 1st Birthday River!!!! Daddy loves you!!!”
River is dressed very handsomely in a blue bowtie and outfit. He sits on the ground as he plays with blue balloons.
Bear and Raiven’s Rocky Relationship
River is the only child of Bear Brown and Raiven Adams. According to the Sun, the couple was engaged, but two weeks later called off the engagement. They did not specify the reason for the split.
Raiven later filed a restraining order against Bear Brown. She said Brown had allegedly threatened her with a gun and became aggressive when he used cocaine, but she dropped the charge.
The couple, who has since been on and off, has not clarified their current relationship status. However, it seems that Raiven Adams and Bear Brown did not celebrate their son’s birthday together.
