Country singer Ned LeDoux is mourning the loss of his child after a choking accident.
An announcement was made Sunday to LeDoux’s Facebook page, announcing the passing of 2-year-old Haven LeDoux at the family’s home in Kansas.
“It is with great sadness that Ned & Morgan inform friends and fans that their two year old daughter Haven passed away on October 20th due to a tragic choking accident in the home. The LeDoux family appreciates your love and support and is requesting privacy at this time.”
Further reports explained, “Paramedics were called to the family’s northeast Kansas home on October 20th and arrived quickly, but attempts to resuscitate her were unsuccessful.”
42-year-old LeDoux and his wife, Morgan, have been married for 11 years. They have another child, a son named Branson.
An Instagram photo shows that Haven just celebrated her 2nd birthday in September. While standing over a table of treats, the smiling child can be seen wearing a shirt that read, “Two Cool.”
“Turned the big #2 today! Happy to be home for this special day. What a character this one.”
LeDoux, known for songs like “Brother Highway” and “Some People Do” also shared a photo of his daughter listening to him strum the guitar.
“This is my lil girl saying “See ya soon Daddy”. We’ve got alota ground to cover this summer. Looking forward to every show along the way.”
LeDoux is the son of former country music star and rodeo champion Chris LeDoux, who was an inspiration of Garth Brooks and famously mentioned in the country hit, “Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old).”
Chris LeDoux passed away from cancer in 2005 at the age of 56.
