Anthony’s Bourdain's 11-year-old daughter Ariane is showing strength after losing her father last week to an apparent suicide. The legendary food icon’s ex-wife Ottavia posted a photo of Araine on stage.

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.”

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. The pair explained in past interviews that Anthony traveled 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 a friend while shooting his latest season for CNN.
