ALASKAN Bush People's Bear Brown posted a rare photo of his mom Ami on her 58th birthday months after her husband Billy's death.
The reality star lost his father in February after the 68-year-old suffered a seizure in the family's Washington home.
Bear shared a group shot on Instagram of his mother holding his one-year-old son, River, and his baby's mother Raiven.
The family photo was in honor of his mother's birthday as they stood in front of gold balloons that spelled out Happy Birthday.
The TV star captioned the post: "I’d like to wish my mom a very Happy Birthday! Don’t know what I’d do without her! Happy Birthday Mom!
"I’m lucky to have you still and very lucky to have my lovely lady and son by my side too!"
The family has been struggling since the death of their patriarch earlier this year.
Bear confirmed his father's passing in February with an emotional message on social media.
"We are heartbroken to announce that our beloved patriarch Billy Brown passed away last night after suffering from a seizure.
"He was our best friend – a wonderful and loving dad, granddad and husband and he will be dearly missed. He lived his life on his terms, off the grid and off the land and taught us to live like that as well.
"We plan to honor his legacy going forward, and to continue with his dream."
On Mother's Day, the ABP star claimed that his mother, Ami, "lost her true love" with Billy's passing, and has had to take care of the whole family during their mourning period.
In June, the TV personality shared a sentimental note to fans on his birthday as it was the first time he would be celebrating without his dad.
Bear thanked fans for sticking by his family, and noted how much he "misses" his dad Billy.
He posted a selfie in a tuxedo, and wrote: "Today is my 34th birthday!
"Where dose [sic] the time go? Seems like just yesterday I was a kid running wild in Alaska, hunting, fishing, surviving, but also living and loving life in a world that seems very different from mine today!
"Today is the first time in 34 years that my dad won't be around for my birthday, I miss him so much!" he gushed.
"I wish I could talk with him again, I wish I could give him a hug! This year has been the hardest of my life!" the TV star confessed.
Bear continued: "I appreciate everyone who has stuck with me and with my family! I'm gonna still try to have as much fun today as I can!
"I know that's what he'd want! Everyday is a blessing, I think too many people forget that! Thank you everyone for your support!!! God bless!!!"
