Bear Brown and Raiven Adams have had a tumultuous relationship from the very beginning. But the most wonderful that came out of all the drama is little River Brown.
Bear Wishes Son A Happy Birthday
Bear, 34, shared a sweet Instagram snap of his son and a Birthday caption.
“Today is officially River’s birthday!!!” the TV personality said in the caption of a photo of his son in a shopping cart taken on March 9th.
River, boasting a full head of blond locks, played with a toy while wearing a fuzzy headband in what appeared to be a Walmart.
For an early celebration, we took him to a water park, which he thoroughly enjoyed, but we still have more surprises in store for him!!
“Happy Birthday River boy,” Bear Brown Said.
The Ups and downs Of Bear Brown & Raiven Adams
He has a two-year-old son with Raiven, whom he married in January 2022 after originally becoming engaged in 2019 before a temporary breakup.
They exchanged vows in front of friends and relatives.
“It feels incredibly amazing to be a married man,” Bear Brown told PEOPLE. “I’ve loved Raiven for a long time, and it’s an honor and a joy to finally be able to call her my wife.”
“She is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen and still takes my breath away! I only wish Da had been there, but I know he was watching from the best seat!
“I look forward to building a life, a family and a home with Raiven, she’s the love of my life and my heart belongs to her and her alone.”
Raiven added: “Was so very happy to have our friends and family that were able to make it. Bear looked very handsome and I’m very grateful for the family we’ve made.”
Bear & Raiven Overcome Bitter Court Battle
After Bear applied for shared custody and confirmation that he was the father of the baby boy, Raiven claimed exclusive custody of their son in a bitter court battle.
Bear filed documents claiming he wasn’t the legal father of Raiven’s child just days after she gave birth, according to The Sun.
Bear would have been relieved of his child support and other financial obligations if the petition had been granted.
However, if a DNA test proves he is River’s father, the Discovery Channel personality has demanded joint custody.
Bear said that his original submission was a “mistake by the court.”
In March of 2020, he submitted a petition to establish himself as the child’s father.
Missing Billy Brown
The news also comes one year after Bear’s father, Billy, passed away.
The father of the Brown family died suddenly in February at the age of 68.
Inside the family’s Washington home, he had a deadly seizure.
Members of the family can be heard shouting, “Wake up, dad!” on video from the incident.
