The whole world is mourning the death of a legendary broadcaster Larry King. Married eight times to seven women, he has a total of five children, nine grandchildren, and four great grandchildren.

But two of his children have recently passed away—August 2020 to be exact. The host posted last August 23 on his Instagram account, “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.”

He shared more details of his two children, “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. Losing them feels so out of order. No parent should have to bury a child.”

Larry King had type 2 diabetes, along with other medical issues such as heart attacks among others. It was further complicated with his battle with Covid-19 which he eventually succumbed into. He was 87 years old.
