Lala, 29, shared a picture of her father on March 27 captioned, “I still haven’t accepted you’re not here anymore. I’ve been with you, on this day, for the last 28 years. I miss you. Happy birthday, dad.”
The VPR star then showed off roses she received from her fiancé, Randall Emmett, in honor of her father’s birthday.
Randall, 48, also posted a photo of Lala and her dad. He captioned the picture, “Today we celebrate an incredible man that I and many others were so lucky to have known and loved! Happy birthday Kent, I know your looking down and taking care of us every day. I love and miss you and thank you for the love you showed me.”
He continued, “I promise I’ll take care of Lala and love her always. We miss you always.” As VPR fans know, Randall proposed to Lala shortly after her dad passed. He revealed he was able to get the SURver’s dads permission to marry her before he died.
Lala has had a rough season with her VPR castmates as she deals with her grief. The SURver admitted to heavy alcohol use after her father died but made a pact to get sober with Randall.
On the March 24 episode, her friends accused her of using the “dad card” to excuse her bad behavior.
