Beets' father, Tony Beets, is a popular American actor best known for his roles in the TV series Gold Rush (2010), Gold Rush: South America (2013), and Gold Rush: Winter's Fortune (2021).

Tony grew up on a farm in Wijdenes, the Netherlands, and made ends meet by milking cows before moving to Dawson City in 1984. He rose as a machine operator to become one of Klondike's most successful miners. 

His wife, Minnie, and their three children, Monica, Kevin, and Michael work for the family company. 

However, in a 2019 interview with the Monsters and Critics, Tony was asked what he would do if his children decided to change career paths. 

Reported by the Outsider, Tony replied, "If they do, fine. If they don't, fine. Hopefully, they'll find it. Hopefully, they find something that they like as much as mining, and perhaps that doesn't necessarily have to be the mining part, whatever suits them. Right?" 

Alongside Minnie also added, "You know, I really can't tell, I can't speak for my kids. They are all adults right? Right. It's up to them if they want to continue. And if not, then … well, I can't speak for them in that regard."
