Yet another show of support from her boo. Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent has had a rough time over the last year, as the unexpected passing of her father, Kent Burningham, devastated the reality star. Her fiancé, Randall Emmett, took to social media to show his love for his fiancee’s late father on what would have been his birthday, March 27. The tribute is just so sweet, folks — it’s not hard to see how much Rand cares about his girl.
“Today we celebrate an incredible man that I and many others were so lucky to have known and loved,” the 48-year-old captioned a cute photo of the 29-year-old and her dad. “Happy birthday Kent, I know [you’re] looking down and taking care of us every day. I love and miss you and thank you for the love you showed me. I promise I’ll take care of Lala and love her always. We miss you always.”

Today we celebrate an incredible man that I and many others were so lucky to have known and loved! Happy birthday Kent, I know your looking down and taking care of us every day. I love and miss you and thank you for the love you showed me. I promise I’ll take care of Lala and love her always. We miss you always
It’s not surprising to see the film producer showing such support for his woman — Lala was pretty vocal about how good Rand was in helping her with her grief in the days following her dad’s passing. “”You are my rock. My heart [and] soul. You saved me — kept me from drowning in the darkest time of my life. I cherish the human you are. Thank you, my love,” she wrote on an Instagram post back on May 5, 2018.
The Pump Rules star even made a pilgrimage out to Utah, her home state, to pay tribute to her pops shortly after his passing and came back with a sick tattoo in his memory. “Back to LA with my sweet, beautiful mama, wearing my dad’s watch, and an epic tattoo. Repping my pops till the end of time (by @chichtattoos),” she wrote. “Dad, I promise I’m going to make you proud. I’m going to be kind and tenderhearted, just like you.”
Lala also made sure to shout her dad out on her own social media, too. “I still haven’t accepted you’re not here anymore. I’ve been with you, on this day, for the last 28 years. I miss you. Happy birthday, dad ♥️,” she captioned her own tribute post, complete with a sweet pic of her dad giving a big smile.
This is the first of her dad’s birthdays without him, so we can only imagine how difficult this one must be for her. We love you, Lala. You got this.
