Alan Thicke, the Canadian actor best known for his leading role in the 1980s sitcom "Growing Pains" as well as being the father of singer Robin Thicke, has died, a source close to the family said on Tuesday. He was 69.

The Los Angeles Times, quoting Robin Thicke's publicist, said the actor died of a heart attack.



More recently Thicke was set to appear in "Fuller House," a remake of the popular 1990s family sitcom.

"Season 2 Fuller House looking good. I even like the ones I'm not in!" Thicke said in a tweet earlier on Tuesday.
