Bachelor Nation star Tyler Cameron mourns late mom Andrea following her tragic death from brain aneurysm in February: ‘A beautiful soul and a beautiful spirit’
Tyler Cameron on Sunday observed his first Mother’s Day while mourning his late mom Andrea, who tragically died at 55 less than three months ago after suffering a brain aneurysm.
Cameron, 27, took to Instagram Sunday with throwback shot of himself flanked by his mom, writing, Always had my back. Still do.’
The Jupiter, Florida native, speaking with Entertainment Tonight, has remained in the Sunshine State to quarantine with family in the wake of her tragic passing February 29, weeks before the national shutdown to flatten the curve of the coronavirus outbreak was implemented.

‘Easter was tough, so I can only imagine what [Mother’s Day] is gonna be,’ said the reality star. ‘But we are going to make the most of the day. We’re going to honor her, we’re going to celebrate her.
‘That’s the most important thing – we’re going to celebrate her and be grateful for the years we had with her.’
Cameron, who is with his brothers Ryan and Austin in Florida, said that the ‘silver lining’ to emerge from the family tragedy was that he was with his family when the shutdown was implemented, instead of New York City, where he had been residing.
‘It’s the silver lining within all of this, is that although it was tragic what happened to my mother, I couldn’t imagine being back in New York,’ Cameron said. ‘I’ve seen the challenges and the tough times that they’ve faced, because I got to be here.

I’m so excited to share it with you guys. It’s just so much fun, and it’s just a fun cute show and for all dog lovers out there.’
