‘Alaskan Bush People’: Why Hasn’t Gabe Brown’s Wife Been on Recent Episodes?

by Keeli Parkey

If you have been watching “Alaskan Bush People” recently, you may have noticed that one member of the Brown family has been absent from the popular Discovery reality series.

That member is Raquell Rose, the wife of Gabe Brown. According to Distractify, Rose has shared a few words about her absence from the series on social media. Her Instagram biography now includes the phrase, “Temporarily MIA.”

Of course, that isn’t a real explanation as to why Rose hasn’t been seen lately on “Alaskan Bush People.” While she hasn’t confirmed this, fans of the show can assume that she has stepped back from the series because she and Gabe have started a family.

Let’s take a look at the relationship between Gabe Brown and Raquell Rose. PEOPLE reported that they began their dating relationship in 2018. They even began dating on Valentine’s Day that year. Gabe and Raquell met thanks to his sister, Rain.

Gabe and Raquell were together less than a year when they married. This private wedding day took place in January 2019. Gabe’s brother, Noah, officiated the ceremony. It took place in Washington close to the Brown family’s residence.

This wasn’t the only wedding ceremony Gabe and Raquell shared that year. In June 2019, they repeated their vows in front of the people close to them. This ceremony took place five months to the day after they said “I do” for the first time.

“Gabe is the most loving, kind and funny guy I know — he makes me laugh every day. I’m so excited to start our lives together and thankful for the support of our friends and family and to God for bringing us together,” Raquell said at the time.

Their joy continued in 2019. They announced that they would be having their first child shortly after their second wedding. The birth of the child was announced during May 2020. At that time, a representative of theirs said the parents wanted privacy for them and their child.

Fans of “Alaskan Bush People” finally got to see their child during September 2020. During an episode, the parents took their child, a baby girl they named Sophie, to visit his parents – Billy Brown and Ami Brown.

Gabe enjoys his role as a father, according to The U.S. Sun. “Being a dad is great, you know taking care of little ones. I feel like I was kind of geared for it. It’s definitely different, though, when you’re the dad. Like, you’re the guy. … The buck stops there,” Gabe also said.

While Raquell may not be appearing on “Alaskan Bush People,” fans can keep up with her on Instagram. In August, for example, she shared a photo of Gabe and their daughter alongside Gabe’s brother, Bear, and his son, River.
