Vanna White mourns the loss of her father, Herbert White Jr., who died on April 1 at the age of 96, she revealed.

“It is with great sadness that I announce that my 96-year-old father passed away peacefully this morning,” she wrote on Twitter. “He lived a full and happy life and will be remembered as one of the kindest and most wonderful human beings in North Myrtle Beach. I love you so much dad. RIP #love #bestdadever.”

Last year, White, 64, said her father was doing well and she was in constant communication with him.

“He’s awesome,” she told co-host Pat Sajak when asked how her dad was doing. “I call him every morning to say ‘Hi’ and that I love him. He’s special.”

According to the Daily Mail, the late 96-year-old was not White’s biological father. The outlet said White was raised by the realtor in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, after her real father, Miguel Angel Rosich, and mother, Joan, separated while White was still a baby.
