ALASKAN Bush People’s Bear Brown is having his first Father's Day despite never having met his son.
Even amid their ongoing custody battle, Bear's ex, Raiven Adams, wished the 31-year-old would be able to meet his son River before next year's Father's Day.
Raiven, 22, posted an emotional tribute to her ex on Instagram alongside adorable pictures of baby River, including one of him cuddled up in a green blanket and smiling widely.
She wrote: "Happy Father's Day! Hopefully by next you've met, and can have a fun day together.
"Until then enjoy these cute smiley photos dad.
"Lord knows we didn't do everything right but we made a pretty cute kid."
Raiven gave birth to River on March 9, 2020 and has been raising him on her own, as Bear was not present for the birth.
Bear and Raiven have had a tumultuous relationship, and she filed a restraining order against Bear in February, accusing him of exhibiting “erratic” and “abusive” behavior.
She claimed he threatened her with a gun and boasted that “gun laws don’t apply” to him, however, the restraining order has since been dropped.
Raiven has she demanded sole custody of their son after Bear filed for joint custody, alongside confirmation that he is the father of the young boy.
Raiven's court filing read: “It is in the best interests of the minor child that defendant Raiven Adams have sole legal custody of the minor child.”
The documents also read it is in River’s best interests for Raiven to have “primary physical custody of the minor child.”
She is asking for Bear to have “restricted visitation” with his son.
The 31-year-old – who initially denied he was 13-week-old River's dad – confirmed he is the father of River in May after taking a DNA test.
Bear said in the Instagram clip: “Hey everybody, I've got some awesome news to share with you all. It is one hundred per cent official – River is my son, I got the results in today.
"It is awesome news it was never any doubt but in order for me to get equal rights as a parent that is one thing I had to prove that I am actually River's dad.”
Despite her warm Father's Day post, Raiven most recently said she was finally "free" from a "toxic relationship".
Raiven shared the post which read: "If you've walked away from a toxic, negative, abusive, one-sided, dead-end low vibrational relationship or friendship, then you've won.
"Even though your heart might hurt at times, you are free. Free to finally be what you always wanted to. Happy."
