Bear Brown may be famous, but he has not forgotten where he came from.

The Alaskan Bush People star recently shared a touching tribute to his dad, Billy Brown, in honor of his 67th birthday. Now that Bear is expecting a baby boy of his own with ex-fiancée Raiven Adams, fatherhood seems to have given him a whole new appreciation for the Brown family patriarch.

Bear posted the birthday message for "the most awesome dad ever" on Instagram alongside a photo of Billy and his mom, Ami Brown. Both of his parents have struggled with their health, from Ami's grueling cancer battle to Billy's mysterious surgery earlier this year. Bear acknowledged his father's strength during these difficult times, writing that he "always faces the storms and never blinks."

"I'd like to wish a happy birthday to the most awesome dad ever! My dad! I have seen him be strong at times it seemed impossible! No matter what he always faces the storms and never blinks! He always stands for what he believes in! He taught me to be true to myself and to others he taught me how to be a real man! Even if I sometimes fail he never has! I only hope I can be half as good as a dad as he has! Happy birthday Da! Your my hero!"

Here's to another great year for Billy and the rest of the Brown family!
