After months of separation due to COVID-19, Bear Brown has finally met his son, River Anthony Billy Isaiah Brown. The baby was born March 9th, 2020 to his former fiancé Raiven Adams. Although the couple has separated, they remain committed to co-parenting their first child.

Although the engagement has been called off, Bear and Raiven are committed to becoming dedicated parents.

The ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE new dad could barely contain his excitement, “It’s an unbelievable feeling to have a son! So exciting to get to hold this little bundle of joy finally! I have been video chatting with him for a while now, thanks to Raiven! With everything going on with the coronavirus and stuff, it just wasn’t possible to see him until now! River is so amazing! And to put it simply, there is no feeling as awesome as getting to hold your son for the first time!”

The reunited family captured the meeting with an adorable photoshoot to commemorate the special occasion.

Mom, Raiven Adams said, “Seeing Bear hold River was very surreal with COVID being the main issue with the boys meeting. It was very difficult to be so far apart for so long. But the boys have been video chatting and I’ve been sending tons of photos. Not the same by any means, so it was very exciting for them to have that moment. I can’t imagine a better feeling than watching someone love our son as much as I do. It was like he had met him from day one – they just got along immediately. Like he just knew.”
