Dr. Nicole Martin announced the sudden death of her father, Miguel, in an emotional Instagram post on Sunday.
After sharing the ups and downs of their relationship on the last few seasons of The Real Housewives of Miami, the 38-year-old, who is currently expecting her second child with husband Anthony Lopez, confirmed her dad’s death as she was flooded with support from her castmates and another Real Housewife star.
“I haven’t been able to find the words and still can’t. Everything happened so fast and it still doesn’t seem real,” Nicole wrote on November 19. “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. Rest in peace dad. Love you.”
Following the sharing of the post, Nicole was met with tons of love and condolences from the RHOM cast.
“I love you so much my beautiful friend,” wrote Guerdy Abraira, 45. “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. He 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.”
“I’m sorry for your loss. Sending you love and light,” said Alexia Echevarria, 56.
“I cannot imagine the pain and heartache you’re feeling my dear friend,” added Kiki Barth, 34. “I am praying for your peace and comfort. Praying for your family. I’m here for you.”
Adriana De Moura, 57, weighed in as well, saying, “So sorry for your loss, my friend. My deepest condolences to you and your family.”
Crystal Kung-Minkoff, 40, of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, also offered support.
“I’m so sorry, Nicole. Sending you all my love,” she said.
“So sorry for your loss. Sending [you] lots of love and prayers,” shared Larsa Pippen, 49.
“Oh no! My sincere condolences to you and your family!” proclaimed Lesa Milan, 34, of The Real Housewives of Dubai.
Then, after Lisa Hochstein, 41, said, “So sorry for your loss [Nicole Martin]. My deepest condolences,” Julia Lemigova, 51, posted a praying hands emoji and a red heart emoji.
