The first episode starts with a bang! Rocco and Eli plan on taking up repairs on a Cold War tank, and also a mystery weapon from WWII.

Eli Is Raising a Son after Experiencing Great Loss

Eli’s Instagram may be full of heavy metal and dangerous arms, but every now and then, he posts some sweet and heartwarming pictures with his “mini-me,” Ryden. On Instagram, Eli revealed that Ryden is autistic, but that he is a very talented boy. It is unclear who Ryden’s mother is, but we’re sure his current fiancée is in full support of Eli and his son.

It appears that Ryden is Eli’s second child, as the marksman had to say goodbye with a heavy heart to his firstborn.

The vet shared a picture of the hand and foot prints of a little baby girl back in 2010, and captioned it with a heartwarming message. The prints are of his late daughter, Brooklyn Rose Cuevas, who would have been Ryden’s older sister.

How he and his wife at the time lost the baby is unclear. “Daddy is sorry we never got to meet. But I know you are with god now and I will see you some day.I love you my lil girl. You will always be in our thoughts [sic],” he wrote as a caption.

My lil girls lil hands and feet. RIP Brooklyn Rose Cuevas. daddy and mommy love you and always will and we will never…

Eli Cuevas Is Set to Marry Instagram Star Alex Zedra

The future looks bright! The unconventional couple posted a funny engagement photo in December 2017. They both claim they’re not the gooey romantic types, but are totally in love. They haven’t really announced a wedding date yet, but we’re guessing 2019 might be a great year for them.

Alex Zedra comes across as a strong and rugged woman, complementing her fiancé well, and doesn’t seem to care for “girly-girl” things. Give her some guns and video games, and Alex Zedra is home!

“I won her heart with my sick ass memes, my mediocre looks, and my terrible shot group,” Eli captioned a photo of himself and Alex in what looks like a photo taken during a shooting practice.
