Perfect family-Matt with his wife and son

Later, on August 21, 2021, Matt and Katie welcomed a baby girl named Ruby Raney. 

The happy duo shared precious moments with the world via their hit reality show Homestead Rescue.

Matt revealed that Indy was the happiest as he was now a big brother.

"Indy has been excited to be a big brother long before we had Ruby in our lives! He calls her "Little Sister" and helps and cares for a Ruby really well."

Similarly, as per the reality star, the name Ruby was both an homage to his birthplace Alaska which has a town named Ruby, and to Katie's father, who used to work in that town.

"Ruby is a beautiful name that we both liked, it also is a place in Alaska on the Yukon river with less than 200 people. Katie's Dad spent a lot of time working in and around the town of Ruby, and always spoke fondly of it."

The adorable family is often featured on the show, and fans love their chemistry.

The Raney Family

Raney is especially into hunting and is considered the best among the Raney family. 

In 2015, he alone brought in over 1,000 pounds of fish, caribou, moose, and sheep. 

The meat was shared between the family members, including his siblings and parents, to get through the extreme Alaskan winter.

"I've had encounters with bears, wolves and run naked with the Caribou," says Matt. "Our family has embraced a lifestyle of subsistence. Throughout all the years our only objective has been to fill out a freezer full of salmon, halibut, caribou, doll sheep, and moose. We've had good years and bad, but I can't remember the last time I ate at a fast food place or bought meat from a market."

He was first seen with his father on National Geographic's 'Ultimate Survival Alaska’-an expedition through the Brooks Mountain range. 

Later, Matt joined the reality show Homestead Rescue, where he helps people build their farms, and houses, hunt, and survive the extreme environment with his father and sister.

In 2020, the family introduced the new reality show Homestead Rescue: Raney Ranch. 

The series is about the challenges and battles the Raney family faces to finish their multi-generational homestead.
