She’s got a very important man in her life! Well, OK, he’s more like a boy. On Sunday, September 8, Alaskan Bush People star Rain Brown decided to show some love to her nephew, Elijah. While promoting the family’s Discovery Channel TV show on Instagram, the teen took the opportunity to give her little man a special cuddle.

“To see more of this cute little fella head over to @discovery at 9:00 p.m. to tune into our season finale of @alaskanbushppl,” Rain, 16, shared on the social media site. “I hope you’ve all enjoyed our crazy adventures. Stay tuned for more to come! #stayhappy #staystrong #apb”

The photo of the two smiling for a selfie is just too cute. Though Rain and Elijah’s dad, her brother Noah Brown, have had drama in the past, it seems like they managed to put it all behind them. The new father and his wife, Rhain Brown, moved away from the bush to temporarily settle in Colorado in March 2019 after some drama with the family, but these days they’re back on good terms with everyone and manage to visit every now and then. When they do, Auntie Rain always makes the most of it.

When Elijah was born, Rain shared an emotional post about the milestone on Instagram. “Dear Elijah Conner, I first met you at 3:30 a.m. Tuesday, February 26th. And I will never be the same,” she wrote. “You have forever changed my heart, and I will spend the rest of my life protecting, loving and teaching you all I know.” During a July visit, she revealed that her relationship with her little man has only continued to grow — and it seems to have helped her relationship with her sister-in-law, too.

“Being an aunt is my favorite thing about me,” she told fans. “Thanks, [Noah and Rhain] for making such a cute little bean. 🤗”
