Dr. Nicole Martin has announced the passing of her father Miguel.
The Real Housewives Of Miami star, 39, shared the heartbreaking news on her Instagram, where she posted photos of her late father.
‘I haven’t been able to find the words and still can’t,’ Martin began in the post.
‘Everything happened so fast and it still doesn’t seem real. Part of me is still waiting for one of your crazy phone calls.
‘So many things left unsaid and moments we didn’t share. Trying not to dwell on the missed moments and focusing on the improvements we made. You had a zest for life and I know you’re having a party up in heaven.
The Bravo star, who recently announced she is expecting her second child, concluded her message by writing: ‘Rest in peace dad. Love you.’
Several of Martin’s friends sent their condolences via the post’s comments section, and her castmate Guerdy Abraira also wrote a message to share her support for the reality television personality during her period of mourning.
‘I love you so much my beautiful friend. This Thanksgiving as you mourn, also be thankful for the good times. I’m so happy that your last moments with him were positive and loving. That’s all that matters, the good memories,’ she wrote.
Abraira added that Miguel ‘was the life of the party and always so positive and THAT is definitely a vibe to live by, counting each day as a blessing.’
Alexia Nepola wrote that she was ‘sorry for your loss,’ while Larsa Pippen added that she was sending her friend ‘lots of love and prayers.’
According to Bravo, Martin’s relationship with her father was not always perfect, and she spoke about feeling abandoned by him during her earlier years during an episode of Real Housewives of Miami’s fourth season.
At the time, she revealed that he had been jailed on charges of money laundering, leaving her mother Sirel to raise her children as a single parent.
However, the reality television personality softened her stance about her father and began making attempts to reconcile with him after she welcomed her son Greyson.
‘I know this isn’t going to be easy. But I know I’ve gotta let this go if there’s any hopes of having, you know, a true bond with my dad,’ she stated.
