SISTER Wives star Janelle Brown has revealed her son Gabe’s drastic new look in a shocking photo.
The star caught a glimpse of her and her ex-husband Kody Brown’s son on her Instagram Story.
On Wednesday, Janelle, 53, took to social media to reveal how Gabe lent a helping hand to his mother after a major snowstorm.
In a previous Instagram story, she revealed that she had just returned home from a trip to blankets on snow.
“So yes. I guess it snowed a bit while we were gone,” she said in the first clip.
“Now find the car.”
A subsequent post showed her finding the car, while another photo showed the TLC star digging a car out of a giant pile of snow.
The Sister Wives star noted Gabe’s friendly gesture in her caption while drawing attention to his new look.
“Gabe brought a shovel to help us out,” Janelle wrote.
“(Check out his new cropped haircut). I’ll post more about it tomorrow.”

The haircut is a big change for Gabe, who previously rocked hair that hung past his shoulders.
He appeared in the last season of Sister Wives with this look.
Otherwise, he largely stays out of the limelight.
During his appearance on the show, Gabe broke down in tears after revealing a major snub from his father Kody, 54.
In the episode, the Brown family patriarch opened up about his wife Robyn and their daughter Branna, who had just contracted COVID.
Towards the end of the segment, the TLC star was seen taking his temperature – the thermometer read 99.8 degrees – as he explained that he too had finally been infected with the virus.
Kody lists his symptoms before declaring that he “feels like crap,” while also revealing that he’s “spoke a little bit with Gabriel” about his son’s successful recovery from the illness.
In a separate confessional, Gabe announced: “In January I get COVID. I didn’t even have a fever, I just lost my smell.
“October rolls around, more specifically the eleventh of October, my birthday.”
The 21-year-old was already choking when he revealed: “Dad calls me and we have a little discussion about how bad my COVID was.”
Near tears, Gabe says, “I shouldn’t have done this, but I did it anyway. I didn’t remind him it was my birthday because I wanted to see if he remembered.”
Looking away from the camera, the Sister Wives star voices say his dad “didn’t do it.”
“And for him it was just a phone call just asking me about COVID,” Gabe shared before becoming visibly emotional and bursting into tears.
Gabe tried to calm down, crying into his hand and covering his face with his hair.
Soft sobs could still be heard from beneath his long mane before raising his head to admit, “It was a lot worse than just a phone call for me.”
Tears roll down his cheeks as he finally admits, “That was the last time I spoke to my father.”
After the episode aired, fans resurfaced an old tweet from the star, which resulted in him being mercilessly mocked.
With a year to go before his son Gabe’s 21st birthday, the TLC star gushed about the importance of such celebrations in his family.
He wrote at the time: “We’ve always capitalized on birthdays. Maybe even an excess of some opinions. But I defend big birthdays as a tribute and celebration of each family member. It’s important.”
Meanwhile, his son Gabe recently broke down in tears after his father snubbed him on his 21st birthday.
Fans took to an online thread dedicated to the TLC series to slam Kody over the bug.
“He contradicts himself with less and less time between contradictions,” said one critic.
Another chimed in sarcastically: “Only children of faithful wives get birthday wishes from dad.”
One person remarked, “And that’s exactly why Gabe was devastated when he forgot his birthday. He makes a big deal out of birthdays and that’s how you know he has feelings for you when yours gets skipped.”
“That makes it worse! My heart broke for Gabe,” responded another.
