9-year-old YouTuber Everleigh Rose's dad dies aged just 29

The Youtuber's father has tragically passed away at a very young age

World-famous YouTuber Everleigh Rose has tragically lost her father at just 9 years old.

Rose's father Tommy 'unexpectedly' died at only 29 years of age last Friday (9 September).

Taking to Instagram, Everleigh's mother, Savannah Rose LaBrant shared the news to her 7.1 million followers yesterday (15 September).

Tommy Smith died age 29.

She posted a photo of Tommy and Everleigh and captioned it: "Our hearts are incredibly heavy as we process the loss of Everleigh’s dad, Tommy.

"He loved Everleigh immensely. As we navigate through this difficult time we kindly ask for privacy so that our family may continue to love on Ev, pray and grieve with her.

"Your prayers for Everleigh are so very appreciated," the short post concluded.

The post did not outline the cause of the late Tommy's death, however his obituary states that young father 'gained his wings unexpectedly', according to the Mirror.

"He was a father, son, brother, grandson, family and friend to all. His love of living life to the absolute fullest along with his free spirit will be missed immensely," it reads.

Savannah and Tommy welcomed baby Everleigh Rose to their lives at the young ages of 19 and 20 years old.

The mother, who is also a YouTube star like her daughter, has since coupled up with Cole Labrant, with whom she shares three children.

Tommy's current girlfriend, Courtney Santaella, also took to the social media platform to share her heartfelt grievances following her 29-year-old's boyfriend's 'unexpected' death.

She wrote: "9/9/22 you were taken unexpectedly to be with Jesus. My heart is broken into a million pieces writing this.

"I feel numb and can’t think of words to say other than I wish this was a horrible nightmare.

"What I do know for sure is that I would not be the woman I am today without you.

"You taught me so much and I am forever thankful that you came into my life and that we were able to make so many amazing memories together.

"I will cherish those and hold them so tightly to my heart the rest of my life. I know you’re dancing and cracking jokes in heaven now.

"You will forever hold a special place in my heart. I love you so much Tommy," she concluded.
