Megan Hilty

Megan Hilty recently confirmed the passing of her sister, nephew, and brother-in-law after a plane crash. Last Wednesday evening, the 41-year-old star of Smash put up a heartbreaking post in which she mourned the death of her family earlier this week. She posted a picture of her late sister, brother-in-law, and their son, and spoke about them for the first time ever since their unexpected and shocking deaths.

She mentioned that their small plane crashed into Puget Sound on Sunday afternoon- which had her sister, her brother-in-law, and their son in it. What made the news even more unfortunate was that her sister was eight months pregnant and they were expecting to welcome their second son next month.

Megan Hilty further mentioned that the last three days had been the worst of their lives. And naturally, there were no words that would truly express the grief that she felt. Megan also stated that she didn’t necessarily plan on addressing the losses, however, she did feel the need to mention that her nephew had been misgendered in the news and that no one had even mentioned their baby Luca.

The deceased parents will be survived by their daughter who has occupied the central part of Hilty’s life. Hilty requested that the personal information regarding the daughter be made private considering she is a minor and had just been through a major trauma. 

Megan Hilty didn’t forget to acknowledge the support that she had received- along with the outpouring of love and support. She concluded that it was extremely comforting to know that her sister and her family had been so well loved and respected by everyone. The float plane was carrying 10 people when it crashed in Puget Sound on Sunday.
