An emerging star in Hollywood, Cole Hauser plays ranch hand Rip Wheeler on Paramount Network hit series “Yellowstone.”

When not busy on the set of Yellowstone, Hauser enjoys spending quality time with his young family. He and his wife of 15 years, Cynthia Daniel, have three children young children together. Daniel is a photographer and former actress most known for her role in teen drama Sweet Valley High. Together, they have two sons, Ryland and Colt, and a daughter named Steely Rose.

Hauser enjoys sharing his family outings with his fans and followers on social media. In a recent Instagram post, he shares a photo of him and his daughter hitting the snowy California slopes. The “Father and Daughter time” pic shows the beautiful California mountains with freshly fallen snow under a crystal clear blue sky.

“Cali skiing at its finest,” the proud father says in the post’s caption space. “Father daughter time another beautiful day.”

Hauser’s Friday social media post drew 4,500 “likes” only a few moments after it went live. Fans of the actors wish him a safe trip in the comments section and say they are ready for Rip and Yellowstone to return.

Cole Hauser Readies for New Yellowstone Season

Rip Wheeler has emerged as a fan favorite on Yellowstone and Hauser’s portrayal of the rough and tough cowboy is a big reason why. Rip is fiercely loyal to the Dutton family and especially to Yellowstone Ranch Owner John Dutton. He serves as an enforcer of sorts for the Dutton family, making quick work of their enemies. He is very unafraid of getting his hands dirty and we have seen him beat up and even kill individuals threatening the ranch he loves.

We have also see Rip’s softer side, another element Hauser handles extremely well. He loves John’s only daughter, Beth Dutton, but struggles last season to muster up the courage to ask his boss for her hand. Sensing his anxiety, Beth instead proposes to him and the two become engaged.

With the family he so dearly loves under attack in the previous season, it is likely viewers will get to see Rip do what he does best and that is kicking butt and taking names. It is almost a sure bet he will be out for revenge in season four after his fiance, boss and friend were ambushed at the end of season three.

With season four now just months away, Yellowstone fans will be getting the answers they crave very soon.
