“Today is @glennwilliamthorejr 79th birthday! My brother and I love my father dearly every day, but today I want to reflect on what my father has meant to our family,” the My Big Fat Fabulous Life star wrote.
“How lucky are we to have been raised by a man who was always so proud of us, who never missed a performance or Daddy-daughter dance class?” she continued. “Who coached our soccer teams and always answered the phone at work when we called him, undoubtedly for something completely unimportant.”
She shared that there isn’t a day that goes by when Glenn doesn’t tell her how much he loves her. More importantly, she has always had his support throughout her life and in her career as an adult. According to Whitney Way Thore, her dad has been the perfect model for what it means to be a great father and husband. She said that he has never let her down.
