Paying special tribute to her dad to mark Father's Day, Whitney Port thanks him for supporting her through the tough times in her life.
Marking the annual Father's Day, Whitney Port posted a message on her official website on Saturday, June 19 that was meant to be a special tribute to her dad. "I come from a family of five and my parents have always made us kids their number one priority," she began her post.
"I'm so fortunate to have a father who wanted to be involved in every facet of his children's lives," she continued writing. "He coached little league, helped us with our homework and made family dinners mandatory. Family time played a huge role in my upbringing and even now I take full advantage of the time I get to spend with them."
"These past few years have been crazy and my dad has done nothing but support me every step of the way! I can't imagine going through this huge life transformation without him by my side and I'm eternally grateful for everything he has given me," she gushed. "I'm a daddy's girl to say the least...always have been and always will be!"
The reality TV star then ended her post, writing, "I of course can't recognize Father's Day without giving a special shout out to my Boppa (that's what I call my grandfather)! He truly is amazing and I'm so thankful to have him in my life."
