Meghan Trainor’s father is “in stable condition” after getting hit by a car, her representative, Luke Burland, confirmed Sunday.
The singer shared a black-and-white throwback photo with Gary Trainor on Sunday, letting fans know she’s “with my dad now.” A photo on her Instagram story appears to show Meghan holding her father’s hand from a hospital bed.
“Thank you for all your sweet messages,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “It was all very scary but he is the strongest man I know.”
Gary was hit by a car Friday night in Los Angeles while crossing the street. The accident was an apparent hit and run.
Gary Trainor played a huge part in Meghan’s musical upbringing in Nantucket; she grew up singing in her Methodist church, where he played organ, and she, along with her brother Justin and her aunt Lisa, played with him in a local cover band as well. In her 2016 Billboard cover story, Meghan even credits her dad for inspiring his vocal style.
