Landon Clifford, the hugely popular star whose YouTube show 'Cam & Fam' documented his and wife Camyrn Clifford's life as teenage parents, has died at the age of 19.

Camryn confirmed her husband's death on her Instagram page to her 473,000 followers in a heartfelt post where she decried how he would be missing out on the life of their young daughters, Collete Brian Clifford, 2, and Delilah Rose Clifford, who was born in May.

"August 13th, 2020 was Landon’s last day being the best dad and husband he could be," she wrote. "After spending the following 6 days in a coma he passed on and donated several organs to people in need all over the country. He died saving the lives of others. That’s the type of person he was. Compassionate, loving, thoughtful, kind, and gentle. He was an amazing husband and the best father those girls could have ever asked for. It saddens me deeply that they will never get to truly know him. He was so young and had so much more life to live. This isn’t how things were supposed to go. "

The mom said she was devastated at the prospect of their children never remembering their dad and how he would never get to walk them down the aisle when they eventually got married in the future.

"He was meant to make it to his next birthday," she continued. "He was meant to walk his daughters down the isle. He was meant to die old with me. Words can not come close to describe the pain I feel. All I can do now is make sure our girls know how much he loved us. He’s looking down on us from heaven and his light will shine through the clouds when we look up at him. May he rest peacefully."

The couple's popular video series featured them opening up about the struggles of being teenage parents, contemplating their future, and of course, what it was like to have two young girls around the house all the time, and had seen them amass 1.29 million followers on YouTube.

A GoFundMe page that has been set up to raise money for the family has already crossed it's $20,000 goal and revealed that Landon had been put into a medically-induced coma after suffering a "brain injury." However, it is still unclear how the teen suffered this injury.
