Congrats are in order! Sister Wives star Janelle Brown proudly revealed her and Kody Brown’s son Hunter will be graduating the Air Force Academy on Saturday, April 18. The TLC alum won’t be able to attend the ceremony in person because of the coronavirus outbreak, but she’s still overjoyed about finally getting to see her son take the stage.

“This year is full of the unusual and bittersweet. Not how we imagined we would be watching Hunter commission and graduate, but here we are. Big graduation ceremony tomorrow. #airforcemom #proud,” the TV personality, 50, wrote.

Janelle first opened up about his journey with the Air Force Academy in 2015, sharing a photo of him looking suave in his uniform. As expected, several of his loved ones showed their support as he worked hard to achieve his goals.

“Nothing makes me more emotional than this stud serving our country! So proud of you hunter man!!!” Maddie Brush (née Brown) captioned a photo with Kody, Christine, Meri and Robyn Brown that September.

Hunter, 23, has kept fans in the loop throughout his experience, sharing an exciting update in August 2019. “Awesome opportunity and learning experience to work as a squadron commander for Charlie Squadron during the Preparatory School BMT,” he wrote. “Really proud of Charlie Squadron and the development they had during BMT. It was also very cool to have the opportunity to come full circle and spend my last summer at USAFA at the same place I spent my first summer!”

Janelle even cheered on her son after he reached another milestone in January 2020. “Five solo skydives,” he captioned a pic with his squad. “None without a true thrill and all with good friends.”

Hunter’s brother Garrison previously enrolled in the National Guard on July 12, 2016 and graduated. Kody and Christine’s son Paedon also graduated from National Guard Boot Camp in April 2019.

Earlier this month, Kody, 51, shared an update on his brood and revealed “normal life had ceased” for them amidst the pandemic, but luckily, they are all still chatting with each other on a daily basis.

We bet most of them will be watching Hunter’s graduation tomorrow!
