Former Bachelorette contestant Tyler Cameron’s mother, Andrea Cameron, has passed away after being taken to the hospital on Thursday, February 27.
The 27-year-old former reality star first disclosed there was something wrong with his mom on Thursday when he announced he was canceling his Friday, February 28, Good Morning America appearance.

“Have to cancel GMA group run tomorrow. Family emergency,” Tyler tweeted via Twitter on Thursday. “Please pray for my mom and my family.”
He was “devastated” after learning of Andrea’s condition, an insider told Us Weekly, sharing that the two “are very close.”
After Tyler’s mother was hospitalized, both of his brothers, Ryan Cameron and Austin Cameron, asked for prayers for Andrea and her recovery.
“God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers,” Ryan, a football player for the Florida Atlantic University, wrote via his Instagram Stories on Friday, sharing a video of himself with his mom on a boat for her birthday. “Pray for my momma.”
“Pray for my momma y’all,” Austin, a Florida State University student, wrote via his Instagram Stories.
The three boys had a very close relationship with their mother, who was a real estate agent in Florida. Although Tyler moved to New York City after his stint on The Bachelorette, he maintained a strong relationship with Andrea.
Last November, Andrea came to town to support Tyler as he ran the New York City Marathon ad posed with him after he finished the race.
“So grateful for all of the support that I got from my family, friends, and BN! Couldn’t have done this race with out all of y’all. So thankful for all of the support,” he wrote via Instagram at the time. “NYC marathon was a day I will always cherish. So much love and joy being shared from stranger to stranger. Everyone needs to go check out their local marathon and feel that love and energy. Nothing like it. I will also never forget when pops pulled up on me at the club dancing. Had us all dying. So grateful. Love y’all❤️.”
