The Gossip Girl alum shared a touching photo of herself and her father, Ernie Lively, who died on June 3 at 74, to her Instagram story. In the picture, which Blake captioned with a brown heart, she is nuzzled against her dad's shoulder. Thus far, the star has not issued a statement on her dad's passing. Ernie most notably starred on the sitcom The Dukes of Hazzard as Longstreet B. Davenport. He also made guest appearances in shows like TV shows like The X-Files, Seinfeld, Murder, She Wrote and The West Wing. He even starred opposite Blake as her onscreen dad in The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. Ernie was with his family when he passed away from cardiac complications. His death comes more than 17 years after he suffered a massive heart attack in 2003. In addition to Blake sharing the photo, her husband Ryan Reynolds also showed support by reposting her tribute on his own Instagram story.
