"It’s with an extremely heavy heart that I must share the news of my mother’s passing. She left for heaven this morning, surrounded by the family," the TV baker wrote in the heartfelt post. "This is a difficult time for all of us and I do ask for your patience and respect while we let this sink in. Her battle with ALS has ended, she is no longer suffering and I hope she’s dancing to 'I Will Survive' with my dad right now."
Accompanying the post was a sweet photo of Valastro giving his mom a kiss on the cheek.
