Former Bachelorette contestant Tyler Cameron has broken his silence after losing his mother last week.
Tyler hadn’t said anything about his mom Andrea’s sudden death until last night, and his social media had remained quiet ever since a post on Twitter revealing he had to rush home for a family emergency.
Now, Tyler has shared a photo from the hospital and it’s heartbreaking — with the image signaling his final goodbye to his mom.
Tyler Cameron shares heartbreaking photo
The photo shows him holding his mother’s hand alongside two others, possibly those of his siblings.
In the caption, Tyler told how heaven had “gained an angel” and that his mom would continue live on through her family. He then asked his followers to “tell those you love that you love them”, and also for privacy so he can grieve his mother.
The news that Tyler’s mom had passed away broke yesterday after he cancelled an event he was set to host. He initially said that he had to cancel because of a family emergency and it was later revealed that Tyler’s mom had passed away.
On his Instagram photo, fellow Bachelor Nation stars reached out to him, sharing their condolences.
Jade Liz Roper commented, “I am so deeply sorry, Tyler,” while Kristina Schulman wrote, “Keeping you and your family in our thoughts.”
Even Peter Weber reached out, as the two filmed Hannah B’s season together, with him writing, “Sending your family all my love and prayers.”
Tyler Cameron didn’t reveal the cause of death
At the present time, Andrea’s cause of death has yet to be revealed. It’s unknown whether she had health problems prior to her death.
However, it does appear that her passing came suddenly and that Tyler had no idea that his mother would pass away.
While filming The Bachelorette with Hannah, Tyler did reveal that his father had issues with his health, and during a conversation revealed that he struggled with signing away his father’s rights as he came close to death.
His father was recovering when they filmed the hometown dates for The Bachelorette. Tyler told the cameras that he hadn’t seen his father in weeks as he broke down in tears. His parents are divorced.
It appears that Tyler has put the show behind him in recent months. Back in December, Tyler decided to delete all of his photos from his Bachelorette journey and of Hannah Brown from his Instagram account.
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
