Martin concluded by saying that her father had a “spirit for life” and wrote that he was probably “having a party in heaven.”
According to BravoMartin’s relationship with her father wasn’t always perfect, and she opened up about feeling abandoned by him during her earlier years during an episode of Real Housewives of Miami’s fourth season.
At the time, she revealed that he was jailed on money laundering charges, leaving her mother Sirel to raise her children as a single parent.
However, the reality TV personality softened her stance on her father and began making attempts to reconcile with him after welcoming her son Greyson.
‘I know this won’t be easy. But I know I have to let this go if there is any hope of a real connection with my father,” she said.
