    Carson Daly is mourning the passing of his stepfather.

    Carson Daly's stepfather Richard Caruso, who he called "Pops," passed away Tuesday.

    The host of NBC's "Today" and "The Voice" announced the passing along with a photo of his stepfather on to Instagram.

    "Pops passed away today with absolute dignity pride," Daly wrote. "The greatest man we ever knew. Our hero."

    "He's back with mom now," Daly wrote.

    Daly's mother, Pattie Daly Caruso, a well-known local TV personality in California, died of a heart attack last month at age 73, according to US Weekly.

    "Short story, been a rough month for my fam. Mom passing. Dad’s health in peril. Just finished shooting NEXT season of Voice. Back Thursday," Daly wrote on Twitter earlier this morning in response to a fan's inquiry about his whereabouts.

    Daly's mother appeared with her son at times on the red carpet and on "The Voice."
