The mourning 60-year-old took to Twitter to share his grief.
“[Four] months ago my Mom lost the love of her life,” the former America’s Funniest Home Videos host wrote on Friday, March 4, afternoon. “Now we've gathered at her bedside.”
Within hours Tom posted a sad update, confirming Kay’s passing.
“Four months apart,” he tweeted, adding a sweet family photo. “Together forever. #RIPMom.”
The late woman’s husband Raymond passed away in October 2015. The 81-year-old's famous son dedicated an episode of DWTS to his dad at the time and then took a much-needed week off from his hosting responsibilities.
While it’s unknown if the ABC personality will salute his mom during the upcoming cycle of the competition series, he willl be taking even more time off for this second tragedy.
After thanking his fans for their “support and sympathy” in this troubling time, the Massachusetts native confirmed he won’t be back to work until March 21 for the Dancing Season 22 premiere.
Our thoughts go out to Tom and we hope Kay rests in peace.
Dancing With the Stars returns Monday, March 21 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
