AceShowbiz – Meghan Trainor‘s father Gary is doing “so much better” after being hit by a car last month.
The 71-year-old was struck by a vehicle as he crossed a busy road in Los Angeles, and was taken to a local hospital, where he was said to be in a “stable condition”.
And in an interview with People on Sunday, March 08, Meghan opened up about her dad’s condition, revealing that he’s well on the road to recovery.
“At first it was really, really scary,” she said. “But he’s so much better and… the hardest thing for him is to stop moving. So we’re like, ‘Just rest,’ and he’s like, ‘Hate it’.”
Meghan also admitted that she was in London at the time of the accident, and her husband Daryl Sabara was the only member of the family that was in Los Angeles and could immediately get to the hospital.
“None of us were here except my husband, and he saw the worst of it,” she said. “We were just FaceTiming the whole time going home and not knowing – like, we heard our information from TMZ. … So weird, when you’re in the ‘famous’ world, how that’s where I’m getting my information from.”
The “All About That Bass” star is famously close to her dad, and he helped her write some songs on her 2011 album, “Only 17”. He has also accompanied her to several awards shows, including the 2016 Grammys, when she won the Best New Artist prize.
In January, Gary made a surprise appearance on “The Voice UK“, when his daughter, who is a coach on the show, invited him up on stage to play “Shake, Rattle and Roll” on the keyboards, while her fellow judge Tom Jones sang.
