LeAnn Rimes is mourning the loss of her stepfather, Ted Miller.
She celebrated his life with a post on social media. "Goodbye Ted. Rest well! Your joy and childlike heart will forever be ingrained on mine," LeAnn wrote on Instagram. "You encouraged me to be nothing but a kid when I had the whole world of adult expectation on my shoulders. You gave me a space to play and be love in the fullness of my being and for that I am forever grateful."
LeAnn's mom, Belinda, married Ted in the early 2000's. They met when Ted, who was a professional photographer, was at an event to take pictures of the performers, including LeAnn.
