“My sweet Stu!! We knew this day would come,” Drummond wrote. Adding, ”Today was my handsome nephew’s last day of filming my cooking show. He stepped in with my kids during the early days of the pandemic and helped shoot a couple of episodes on iPhones, and he also helped do some dishes. That was April 2020…and those “couple of episodes” turned into like 80 or more.”
The Food Network star went on to share her love for her nephew who has grown into a young man, “His name is Stuart, but I still call him Tooie like we all did when he was little. Usually I go a step further and call him Tooie Booie,” she wrote.
“Since he’s well past the age of 18, I told him I was going to stop calling him Tooie Booie and start calling him Stuart. It lasted about nine minutes. I love this boy a lot.” Drummond closed out the post with a heart.
