The sad news comes after Tyler canceled an appearance on Good Morning America for National Workout Day late last week. In a plea to fans on Twitter, the 27-year-old Bachelor Nation fan-favorite revealed he had a “family emergency” and asked fans to pray for his mom as he left New York to presumably head to his Florida hometown.
An insider told Us that Tyler is “devastated” over his mother’s unexpected passing, which occurred on Friday.
“They are very close,” the source said of the family, which also includes Tyler’s brothers Ryan and Austin.
There are no details on what medical emergency Andrea Cameron suffered before her death. Tyler has not returned to social media since announcing his GMA cancellation, but Daily Mail notes that Tyler’s brother Ryan shared a video of him and his mother to Instagram and wrote, “God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers” before also asking followers to pray for his “momma.”
Tyler frequently uploads family photos on his Instagram page. In October, he posted a snapshot with his mom on which he wrote how much he loved and appreciated her. Fans flocked to the comments section of that post to offer condolences to Tyler following his mother’s sudden death.
“So sorry for the loss of your beautiful mother,” one follower wrote.
“Nothing can describe this pain and you’re way too young to feel it,” another fan said. “I am so sorry Tyler!”
“I am so, so sorry Tyler! There are no words. We all love you! Prayers going up at this time,” a third person wrote.
“Stay strong Tyler,” another Instagrammer added. “So sorry. Sending prayers.”
On Twitter, fans also offered their thoughts and prayers to Tyler as he deals with the devastating loss of his beloved mother.

Fans of ABC’s rose-filled reality TV franchise met Tyler’s mom last July during the hometown dates episode of Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette. In a sweet scene, the mother and son had a heartfelt chat during which Tyler revealed his plans to propose to Hannah. Fans know that Hannah rejected Tyler’s proposal and instead chose Jed Wyatt.
During Hannah’s season of The Bachelorette, Tyler also detailed how he helped his father, Jeff, through a major health crisis. At the time, the ABC reality star said it was one of the hardest things he had ever gone through.
