ALASKAN Bush People star Bear Brown has shared the first picture of him finally holding his baby son six months after his ex Raiven Adams gave birth.
The 32-year-old met his first child after living over 1,500 miles apart since River's birth.
Raiven travelled from Texas to Washington to allow Bear to meet River, and the reality star has kept his fans posted on the momentous occasion on Instagram.
In their first family photo together Bear holds River's little hand and the adorable kid laughs, while Raiven flashes a huge smile.
Bear captioned the photo: "There is no feeling in the word like holding your very own !!!
"It was so awesome to finally get to see and hold this beautiful little baby! River is perfect! It was great to see Raiven too!"
The reality star's fans were over the moon for him, as one said: "Fatherhood looks good on you Bear! River is so cuuuute!"
Another said: "I am very happy for you greetings from Germany! Thanks for sharing!"
His ex fiancée Raiven traveled from Texas to Washington to introduce Bear to their son this week.
He told People Magazine about meeting his son: "It's an unbelievable feeling to have a son. So exciting to get to hold this little bundle of joy finally!"
While Bear has "been video chatting" with River, the opportunity to meet his son in person had been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic and his rocky past with Raiven.
The proud dad told the publication: "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!"
Raiven added: "Seeing Bear hold River was very surreal."
The 22-year-old continued: "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."
The mother-of-one added that Bear and River "got along immediately."
Before the reunion, Bear revealed in an Instagram video that he was an hour away from meeting his son for the first time.
He hinted that the meeting went well when he posted a snap on Instagram of a rainbow, which he captioned: "Things are getting better, getting better everyday!"
While the friendly exes are now getting along, it hasn't always been smooth sailing for the Alaskan Bush People star and Raiven.
The young mother revealed she was pregnant soon after they called off the wedding.
In February, Raiven filed for a restraining order request against Bear and accused him of "erratic" and "abusive" behavior.
She dropped the request days before she gave birth to their son.
Bear then filed for joint custody of River in March, with Raiven responding by requesting he receive “restricted visitation” with their son.
As The Sun previously reported, Bear and Raiven reached a custody agreement in June after months of fighting.
Raiven filed a proposed child support order on September 15.
Bear was also ordered by the court to provide financial information in August.
