Look who’s excited to be an aunt! Alaskan Bush People star Rain Brown may have had some recent tension with her big brother Noah Brown, but now that Noah and his wife have a baby, she seems ready to put all that drama aside. After the new parents welcomed their son on Tuesday, February 26, it seems like his aunt was one of the first people to meet him — and, judging by her expression, it was pretty much love at first sight. In a new Instagram post, Rain shared a picture of her and her nephew with the sweetest caption.
“Dear Elijah Conner, I first met you at 3:30 a.m. Tuesday, February 26th. And I will never be the same,” the 16-year-old wrote. “You have forever changed my heart, and I will spend the rest of my life protecting, loving and teaching you all I know. ‘May the road rise to meet you, and the wind always be at your back. and the rains fall softly on your fields. May God hold you gently in the palm of his hand.’ Love you, Eli, and I love you, Noah and Rhain. You are amazing parents and you will only get better with time. ♥️”

Dear Elijah Conner, I first met you at 3:30am Tuesday February 26th. And I will never be the same. You have forever changed my heart and I will spend the rest of my life protecting loving and teaching you all I know. "May the road rise to meet you, and the wind always be at your back. and the rains fall softly on your fields. May God hold you gently in the palm of his hand. Love you Eli, and I love you Noah and Rhain, you are amazing parents and you will only get better with time ♥️#staystrong #stayhappy #happyaunt
At the end of the post, she added her usual #staystrong and #stayhappy mantras — but there was an extra hashtag, too. “#happyaunt,” she wrote on the photo, and it’s clear she means it. Even more touching than her words for baby Elijah, though, are her words for Noah and her step-sister, the new Rhain Brown. Back in July 2018, the now-26-year-old father slammed his baby sister for being a “child” who doesn’t have to “worry about paying bills” and “spends her days cuddling bunnies.” In August 2018, tensions escalated further when Rain allegedly accused Rhain of stealing her name. But that message goes to show that everyone is working hard to mend their relationships.
“Noah and Rhain were in the midst of a rough patch with his family prior to their baby news, but the pregnancy has really turned things around for them,” a source told Radar Online in December 2018. “While Rain isn’t fully on Team Rhain yet, she has opened up dialogue and is really excited for the birth. … Everyone thinks it is just a matter of time.” Looks like meeting Elijah may have just sealed the deal. Now can these two R(h)ains hug and make up?
