Our hearts are breaking for country singer Ned LeDoux and his family. On Sunday, October 27, the musician revealed that his 2-year-old daughter, Haven, passed away one week earlier. On October 20, the toddler died in a “tragic choking accident” at home. Though the LeDoux family didn’t release any more details, they did share a statement with fans on the artist’s Facebook page.

“It is with great sadness that Ned & Morgan [LeDeoux] inform friends and fans that their 2-year-old daughter, Haven, passed away on October 20th due to a tragic choking accident in the home,” read the post. “The LeDoux family appreciates your love and support and is requesting privacy at this time.”

The musician and his wife helped their daughter celebrate her birthday just a few weeks earlier on September 15. “Turned the big #2 today! Happy to be home for this special day,” Ned, 42, wrote on Instagram. “What a character this one [is]. 😋” Over the summer, he shared a sweet post saying goodbye to his little one as he headed out to tour. “This is my lil girl saying, ‘See ya soon Daddy,'” he captioned a shot of her waving up at him. “We’ve got [a lot of] ground to cover this summer. Looking forward to every show along the way.”

For now, it seems parents Ned and Morgan will be staying home with Haven’s older brother and their 9-year-old son, Bronson. The words of support and well wishes have already started pouring in from fans, though. “I’m so sorry for your loss. May God give you and your family strength during this hard time,” one fan commented on a photo of the little girl. “There is nothing to say except I’m SO sorry,” wrote another. “Sending love and prayers up for you and your family. ❤️❤️❤️”

Relatively private, the couple first announced Haven’s birth two weeks after she was born. “It’s a girl! Spent [some] time at home to welcome in a brand new LeDoux,” the dad wrote on Twitter. “Haven Jo is 2 weeks old now and doin’ good.” The musician has incorporated his welcomed his family life into his work life, though. In 2018, he even used his son’s drawing as the album cover for his very first Christmas song. “Proud to have had my son do the artwork for this special release,” he told fans. It’s clear the family was very close, and we’re sending so much love and light to them during this difficult time.
