Anthony’s Bourdain's daughter is showing strength after losing her father to an apparent suicide. The legendary food icon’s ex-wife, Ottavia, posted a photo of 11-year-old Ariane, onstage standing behind a microphone in what appears to be a band behind her. 

In her first social media post since Bourdain's passting, she wrote, “Our little girl had her concert today. She was amazing. So strong and brave. She wore the boots you bought her. I hope you are having a good trip, wherever you are.”

Our little girl had her concert today. She was amazing. So strong and brave. She wore the boots you bought her. I hope you are having a good trip, wherever you are.

Ottavia and Anthony were married for nine years and separated in 2016 but continued to raise their daughter together and kept her out of the spotlight. The family shared in their love of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Bourdain explained in past interviews that he travels for 250 days a year shooting CNN's Parts Unknown and tried to spend at least five days a month with his daughter in New York.

The 61-year-old was found dead in his France hotel room by chef and friend Éric Ripert while shooting his latest season for CNN.
