Andrea Hermann Cameron, the mother of former Bachelorette star Tyler Cameron, passed away on Friday, February 28. She was surrounded by her family and friends when she passed away in Jupiter, Florida. Andrea is survived by her family which includes her three sons: Tyler, Austin, and Ryan.
The Palm Beach Post confirmed Andrea’s cause of death to be from a brain aneurysm. She was 55.
A family friend, Darlene Urso-Simmons spoke of the devastating news on her Facebook page. Sharing a photo of herself and Andrea she wrote, “I am just completely heartbroken. Mark, Betina, Stephanie, Mama Ann Jeff Paul, Tyler, Austin Ryan! No words I wouldn’t have traded a minute of all the good bad and fun and crazies to be a part of this family and life we shared. Love and hug each other in a spilt second it can be gone!”
A recent transplant to New York City, Tyler headed straight home to Florida to be by her side on Thursday.
Even after Tyler left the reality dating show competition, Andrea remained a huge fan of the show. In a twist of fate, her final Instagram post was a picture of herself watching The Bachelor starring Peter Weber, and cheering on for Madison Prewett to receive his final rose. She captioned the picture of her lounging on the couch with Tyler’s dog Harley, “Here we go Peter……. my pick is Maddy!”
A few days before Andrea died, Tyler also took to social media to tweet about the current Bachelor season, and how it made him think about his mom.
He tweeted, “Just was watching the promo for the next episode and saw Pete’s mom telling him to bring her back and don’t let her go. Good thing that’s not me and my mom. She would have been like look what you did now dumbass and my pops would have been making fun of me.”
