Gabe Brown from Alaskan Bush People is looking happy and healthy following his illness earlier this year — after posting a string of new images of himself on Instagram.
The fan favorite has put up several photos in recent days of him looking well, accompanied by extracts from the Bible and other religious-themed messages.
In one photo, he showed a tattoo on his left shoulder of a wooden crucifix, along with text from the Book of Acts.

THE ACTS . 10. 34 then peter opened his mouth and said of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons 35 but in every nation he that feareth him and worketh righteousness is accepted with him 36 the word which God sent unto the children of Israel preaching peace by Jesus Christ (he is Lord of all:) 37 that word I say ye know which was published throughout all Judaea and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil for God was with him 39 and we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem whom they slew and hanged on a tree 40 him God raised up the third day and showed him openly 41 not to all the people but unto witnesses chosen before of God even to us who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead 42 and he commanded us to preach unto the people and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the judge of quick and dead 43 to him give all the prophets witness that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. The Holy Spirit given to Gentile believers. 44 while Peter yet spake these words the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word 45 and they of the circumcision which believed were astonished as many as came with Peter because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost 46 for they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God then answered Peter 47 can any man forbid water that these should not be baptized which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? 48 and he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.✝️. God bless us all in the name of Jesus Christ 😋
In his most recent post, pictured at the top of this story, a beaming Gabe Brown, wearing a straw hat, is seen smiling at the camera as he takes a selfie from inside a car.
He wrote alongside the photograph: “As you go about your day remember ‘the hardest lie to see through is the one we tell ourselves, I’m not good enough, I don’t deserve anything, no one could ever love me, so on and so forth.’ -Darwin Edgar Jr. God loves us all smile and be happy.”
In another post, Gabe showed himself looking side-on at the camera, with the caption: “Sometimes we go through things so horrible we start to think that’s life (it’s not) trust in God and just let go.”
In another, Gabe quoted Psalm 28: “Blessed be the Lord, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications. 7 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.”
Gabe’s healthy look and upbeat posts come after he suffered a mystery illness last year, which Radar Online recently reported meant he had to spend time apart from his family so mom Ami, who is in remission from cancer, “didn’t catch anything”.
The website previously posted a story back in April revealing Gabe had been suffering from a “flu-like illness”. Another story back in March made reference to the star’s mental health, saying he was suffering a “bizarre mental breakdown” with the headline: “DOWNWARD SPIRAL? Gabe Gone Mad! ‘Alaskan Bush’ Star Continues To Unravel In Bizarre Mental Meltdown.”
Alaskan Bush People matriarch Ami’s battle with cancer made headlines last year after she underwent months of gruelling chemotherapy treatment before medics gave her the good news in December that her body was beating the disease.
Ami underwent further checks in recent weeks, with son Joshua Bam Bam Brown revealing on Twitter that she was still in remission. He said: “So thrilled that my mom is still in remission and grateful to all of the doctors at UCLA for caring for her/us so well. We are very blessed.”

The Brown family recently moved to Washington to set up their new home, after leaving Alaska last year so Ami could receive treatment at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. Alaskan Bush People Season 8 is currently filming and is expected to air later this year. Filming was initially delayed due to an unusually long and harsh winter in the location where they are now living.
