Two of Larry King’s children have tragically died in the last three weeks.
On Sunday, Larry spoke on their passing for the first time.

In a post on Facebook, King wrote, “It is with sadness and a father’s broken heart that I confirm the recent loss of two of my children, Andy King, and Chaia King. Both of them were good and kind souls and they will be greatly missed.”
Chaia was 51 and Andy was 65.
“Andy passed away unexpectedly of a heart attack on July 28th, and Chaia passed on August 20th, only a short time after having been diagnosed with lung cancer,” he wrote, “Losing them feels so out of order. No parent should have to bury a child.”
“My family and I thank you for your outpouring of kind sentiments and well wishes,” he added.
Larry, 86, adopted Andy in 1962 after he married his mother, Alene Akins. Larry and Akins had Chaia in 1969.
The “Politiking with Larry King” host is also the father to Larry Jr., from his second marriage, and college-age sons Chance and Cannon, from his most recent marriage to Shawn King.
Prayers go out to Larry King and his family.
