Talk about a twist! Just days after Bear Brown‘s former fiancée called off their engagement, model Raiven Adams announced the one-time couple is actually expecting together. The future Alaskan Bush People star shared the pregnancy news on her private Instagram account on Thursday, September 12.
“Quickly after deciding friendship was best for us, we found out we had a little surprise coming our way,” Raiven, 21, wrote on Instagram. “After a quick engagement, because we felt that was the right thing to do, we talked about things and ultimately decided being coparents was best for us as well as our baby. We are super excited and surprised to announce this, especially due to current events. We are excited to coparent as friends and do our best to be the best we can be.”
“We can’t wait to find out the gender!” she continued. “Being in the earlier stages means a lot of sick and sleepless nights.” Speaking directly to her baby, she added, “That’s OK, because you are for sure worth it.”
Based on the mom-to-be’s post, it seems like the engagement the couple announced in August was based on the discovery that she was pregnant. When they realized they didn’t have to get married to be good parents to their child, they decided to follow through with their original plan of staying friends instead of being in a romantic relationship. It’s clear that, platonic or not, these two have a lot of love for each other. “Sometimes two people are meant to be in each other’s [lives] … but not in the way they thought,” Raiven wrote on Instagram on Monday, September 9.
Don’t expect too many updates from the parents-to-be, though. When the model announced her split from Bear, 32, she revealed that one of her reasons for doing so was to avoid the public spotlight. “I think this life is too much for me. The drama, the articles, the harassment. The mean people who have nothing better to do,” she said. In a post written after her pregnancy announcement, she continued, “I realize here and now, no matter what I say or do, the hateful people will trash me. … I will no longer explain myself as I can see you don’t want the truth … and I have no time for that.”
