The Brady family has confirmed the death of its first child, Kameyarne Brady, who fell and hit her head while attending a friend’s wedding in Texas.
The Brady children, Josh, 8, and Kari Brady, 10, were in the hospital Friday morning, the Brady family announced in a statement.
“Kari’s family has been informed that she passed away at 12:01 a.m.
ET,” the family said.
“We extend our deepest condolences to Kari’s friends and family, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Brady children and Kameya.”
The Brady daughters, Kamiyar and Kamiya, attended the wedding of her boyfriend, Kevin, and his fiancee, Emily, according to a statement from Kari.
The two were married on Saturday at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Texas, according the statement.
The church posted a photo of Kari and her boyfriend kissing on its Facebook page.
Emily Brady also posted a video of the couple kissing in the church, in which they hug and kiss for several seconds.
Emily is expected to undergo surgery on Friday.
Kari was a senior at Lutz High School in New Jersey and graduated in 2018.
The family had announced in November 2018 that Kari would be the first Brady daughter to graduate from high school.
Kamiyah, 9, is a sophomore at New York City’s Bronx Catholic School, according school officials.
The younger Brady is a senior and was in high school when her father was born.
“Our hearts go out to Kameyan, the family and friends of Kameyah, and the entire Brady family,” New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo said in a tweet.
“My thoughts and condolences go out and extend to her parents, family and close friends.”
A family spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
“There’s a big gap between the Brady kids, and that gap is huge,” said Chris Beech, who was Brady’s college roommate in New England and was not related to the Brady girls.
“You’re seeing the impact of that.
And there’s a lot of work to be done.”
In addition to the two younger Brady daughters and Kargar, Karga and Karna, Brady’s eldest daughter, was the last Brady daughter born.
Kargara was born in 2018, the same year the Brady daughters were born, and she will turn 11 on Sept. 30.
“That was really hard on the kids,” Beech said.
Karna was born on Nov. 4, 2018.
Kameys oldest son, Brady Jr., is currently in high-school in Georgia.
“The boys were really trying to put the kids through school.
They were like, ‘Mommy, it’s so hard.
You’ve got to put your mind to it,'” Beech recalled.
“They were trying to do it all.
They wanted to be the best.
But it was really tough on the family.
It was really emotional for them.”
Beech has been following the Brady boys closely and said he has seen similarities between Kargars upbringing and the family’s current life.
“It’s not like they’re trying to be anything like the Brady siblings.
They just don’t have the same resources as they have,” he said.
He added that Brady Sr. “loves his kids.
He really does.
He just wants them to succeed.”
The New England Patriots have won four Super Bowls and were one of the most successful teams of all time.
Brady is the last quarterback to win the NFL MVP award.
“He was a great quarterback.
I don’t know how else to describe him.
I’ve played with a lot people who were great quarterbacks, and I think he’s a good one,” Bech said.
Beech believes the Brady brothers’ time in New York has taught them something about life.
He said the younger Brady has always been driven and a true professional.
“I just feel like he’s always been the type of guy that just wants to do his job,” Becht said.
Brady has been married for 27 years and is the father of two young sons, Brady III and Brady, with his longtime wife, Heather, and former first daughter, Kai, who is the daughter of his son, son-in-law, former teammate, New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith.
“When you think of Brady, it really is about the family,” Beich said.
