Raquell Rose Pantilla: The Truth About Alaskan Bush People Star Gabe Brown's Wife

Alaskan Bush People stars Billy and Ami Brown have raised seven kids together (Matt, Snowbird, Rainy, Bear, Gabe, Joshua, and Noah), forming a large and tight-knit brood they've dubbed the "Wolfpack." The nickname — which is fitting given the family's time spent in the Alaskan wilderness — might be intimidating to someone interested in dating one of the siblings. That's because wolf packs tend to be unfriendly to outsiders or so-called lone wolves who don't have an established bond and history with the family unit. So perhaps Gabe's wife, Raquell Rose Pantilla, felt a bit nervous when she married into the family in January 2019, almost a year after they started dating in February 2018. Any reservations she may have had hopefully disappeared when the couple announced they were expecting their own pup.

Now that Pantilla is an official member of the Wolfpack, we've decided to take a deep dive into her past and background. By the time we're done, there's a good chance you'll be howling for more info about Gabe's lady love.

Fans are clamoring for news about Gabe & Raquell's baby

Many Alaskan Bush People fans were overjoyed when Gabe Brown and Raquell Rose Pantilla announced in July 2019 that they were expecting their first child together. "God has blessed us in so many ways and we can't wait to meet our little one this fall," they told People in a joint statement. However, the couple's reported due date of November 2019 came and went without any announcement, leading some fans to question the silence with a mix of anticipation and concern. 

Perhaps these two will share their birth story on Season 11 of Alaskan Bush People. "This season also brings new wives and babies into the family. Brothers Gabe and Noah are settling into married life and beginning their journeys as parents in the wild," reads the season synopsis on the Discovery Channel. "Noah moves forward with his plans to build a home and brings Rhain Alisha and Baby Elijah back to the mountain while Gabe and Raquel prepare for a Bush wedding along with the arrival of their baby." Translation: Stay tuned.

Raquell Rose Pantilla has history with the Browns

Some viewers might be wondering how Raquell Rose Pantilla and Gabe Brown met, which is fair considering the couple's relationship seemingly moved quickly. Their courtship, marriage, and baby announcement all happened in less than two years! As it turns out, Gabe's little sister, Rainy Brown (pictured right,) was BFFs with Pantilla and introduced them to one another in February 2018. 

Rainy's big bro is clearly thankful for his sister's matchmaking skills, gushing on Instagram in September 2019: "Never stop dreaming or hoping. Once upon time I was lonely, and sad feeling as though the very spirit that made me, me had faded away as so many things in life do. Thanks to this amazing woman, my loving family, and the power, mercy and presence of God. Bliss has once again become part of who I am." Aww.

As for Pantilla, she's just as smitten with her husband. "Gabe is the most loving, kind and funny guy I know — he makes me laugh every day," she told People. "I'm so excited to start our lives together and thankful for the support of our friends and family and to God for bringing us together."

Yep, it sounds like Pantilla is an adored member of the Wolfpack who will be there no matter what ups and downs the family may face.
