The Bachelorette’s Tyler Cameron breaks silence on his mom Andrea Cameron’s death
Days after Andrea was reportedly hospitalized for a health scare on Thursday, Tyler has broken his silence.
Today heaven gained an angel,” Tyler captioned an Instagram photo on Monday that showed three hands — presumably belonging to Tyler and his two brothers — holding their mother’s hand in the hospital.
“We will love and miss our mother dearly. She will live on through us and through those that she has had an impact on.”
Tyler then requested two things from fans while his family mourns this seemingly unexpected and tragic family loss.
“While we grieve, we ask for two things: First, tell those you love that you love them; and second, please let us take this time to celebrate her life in private. Thank you for all of your love and support,” Tyler concluded, along with a red-heart emoji.
Andrea, who worked as a real estate agent in Florida, died after being taken to the hospital on Thursday, February 27, Us Weeklyreported.
Tyler first indicated his mother was going through a health crisis that same day on social media.
“Have to cancel GMA group run tomorrow. Family emergency,” The Bachelorette alum wrote on Twitter and Instagram at the time, explaining why he’d be missing out on a Good Morning America appearance he had been looking forward to.
Please pray for my mom and my family.”
Tyler’s brothers, Ryan Cameron and Austin Cameron, wrote similar messages of support for their mother on social media at the time.
The actual cause of Andrea’s death has yet to be reported.
But a source told Us, “Tyler is utterly devastated and in shock. It doesn’t feel real. His entire family is strong as hell but their world has been shattered.”
TMZ obtained photos of Tyler looking somber and distraught sitting at a table in the Brass Ring Pub restaurant on Sunday in Florida.
Tyler appeared to be dining with a group of loved ones, and at one point, he reportedly buried his face into the palm of his hand.
Tyler has been very open about his tight relationship with his parents and brothers ever since starring on The Bachelorette’sfifteenth season last year.
Tyler brought Hannah Brown to his hometown in Florida and gushed about the love he had for his parents. At the time, however, his father Jeff Cameron had been the one with health issues.
Tyler’s reunion with his father Jeff Cameron — who apparently “almost died” — was an emotional one on the show. Tyler said he helped his mother a lot when Jeff was in the hospital and the former general contractor took over many of the responsibilities of his dad’s business.
