Media personality Megyn Kelly disclosed that her 58-year-old sister Suzanne Crossley passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack on Friday.
Kelly said that her sister had "died suddenly on Friday of a heart attack" — she noted that her sister had not had "very good health over the past couple of years," and there had been "sort of one problem after another."
Kelly, 51, described her sister's death as "sudden" and "unexpected." She noted that after receiving the news, she "went right up and was there with my mom, and my brother Paul, and my, my nephew Brian, one of her three kids, when she passed."
She said that she decided to do her show on Monday, noting that "it's more cathartic to work," and doing so provided her a bit of time in which she could get her mind off of the issue. She said that "later this week" after she gets the opportunity to "process it more," she will speak more about her sister.
Kelly spoke about the importance of staying connected with loved ones and noted that Fox News Channel's Ainsley Earhardt's mother had passed away over the weekend.
Kelly noted that it is "a reminder to hug the people you love, right? How short and tenuous life is, and how important it is to stay close to the people you love. You know, we can't all be perfect on that front, but we can make a little effort day by day just to, you know, shoot a text, or return a call."
She said that she would appreciate it if people would pray "for my mom and my sister's kids and my sister's one grandchild," who are "hurting today."
