Alan Thicke's Ex Provides Update on His Kids After His Death

Alan Thicke‘s ex wife Gloria Loring has provided an update about how her two sons with the actor: Robin, 39, and Brennan, 41, are dealing with his death.

“[They're dealing with it] in their own way,” Gloria, 70, told Entertainment Tonight. “I told them I was ready to come in and be with them if they wanted me there. They said, ‘Give us a day; we just need some quiet time.’ I said, ‘I’m there if you need me.’”

“Everyone has their own way of grieving,” she added.

Gloria went on to explain how she found out Alan had passed.

“Brennan sent me a text because he was on the way to the hospital. He said, ‘Dad’s had a heart attack and it’s a big deal.’ I called and spoke to him briefly and said, ‘Tell me what happened,’ and he said they’d taken him to the hospital, they were very close, they were taking him into surgery.’” And then a very short time later, Brennan texted me and said, ‘He’s gone.’”

Gloria and Alan were married from 1970 to 1984. Alan passed away on Tuesday (December 13) from a heart attack.
