Our thoughts and condolences are with Bridgit Mendler today, as the former Disney Channel star just announced that her grandpa has suddenly passed away.
Bridgit posted a black-and-white photo of her and her grandfather earlier this morning with a heartfelt message. She wrote, "My grandpa passed away suddenly. Wishing I could have given you one last hug, but I'm glad you are at peace now. I love you forever. 💜..."
What heartbreaking news! We know it must not be an easy time right now for the Mendler family — and hopefully Bridgit's boyfriend Shane Harper is there to support her — and our hearts go out to them in the wake of this devastating news.
