December 13 21:54 2016

Alan Thicke, star of Growing Pains and father of Robin Thicke has died at the age of 69 from a heart attack.

TMZ was the first to report he was playing hockey with his son Carter and was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead this afternoon. The news has since been confirmed by other sources.

A source shared with E! News, “Alan was healthy and his heart attack was a complete shock.”

Thicke was most recently seen on Fuller House and This is Us. In an oddly timed post today, he expressed excitement over being on Fuller House, saying, “Season 2 Fuller House looking good. I even like the ones I’m not in.”

Friends of the actor have already taken to social media to express their grief.

Thicke is survived by his three sons Robin, Brennan and Carter and wife Tanya.
