‘Happy Father’s Day to a man I’ll always love. I yearn for your support and love every single day. Maybe before either of us pass, we can say “I love you” and hug one another again.

Heartbreaking: Stodden says her father doesn’t want anything to do with her
The pair have had a fractured relationship since Stodden left home at 16 and married then 51-year old Doug Hutchinson.
‘My father told me to never contact him again and that he does not have a daughter,’ she revealed on social media last year.
‘The thing is, if my father doesn’t want to be a FATHER then I need to finally accept that,’ she added at the time.
The publicity surrounding Stodden as a teen bride with a man more than 34-years her senior led to appearances on numerous reality television shows like Couples Therapy, with Hutchinson, and Celebrity Big Brother.
Over the years, the couple separated several times and eventually Stodden filed for divorce from Hutchinson in March 2018, that was later finalized just three months ago.
