Mike Wolfe was in tears as he spent precious time with his daughter following the news that Frank Fritz had suffered a stroke. The “American Pickers'” star gushed about his daughter’s painting skills in a recent Instagram post.

The 58-year-old cheered on his daughter Charlie, writing, “That’s my girl!” as he uploaded pics of his only child. In a string of pics, the “Pickers” star snapped pics of Charlie as she mixed paint onto her brush and painted the sides of the small bowl.

Mike captioned the post: “Watching someone that I helped create, create simple moments that bring tears to my eyes. This I will never forget.”

The History Channel reality TV star shares his daughter with his ex-wife, Jodi Faeth. After uploading the story, Wolfe’s girlfriend, Leticia Cline, wrote in the comments section and left a heart emoji.

Wolfe’s heartfelt, proud girl-dad post comes after the news recently broke out that former co-host Frank Fritz suffered a stroke, leaving him in the hospital. The scary stroke occurred one year after Fritz was fired from the popular History Channel show.

He added: “Frank has suffered a stroke and is in the hospital. Please keep him in your hearts and thoughts.”

Wolfe concluded: “Frank, I pray more than anything that you make it through this okay. I love you, buddy.”

Although Wolfe had good intentions, many “American Pickers” fans slammed Wolfe for allegedly not reaching out to Fritz since he was fired from the show. One of Wolfe’s fans wrote in the comments: “Why the concern now, Mike? You weren’t worried before. A little too late, I think. Pretty lame, not real.”

Another wrote: “Mike needs to stop acting fake.” A third fan chimed in: “Mike should be feeling like s**t right now for what he did to Frank.”

Someone else called out the father-of-one, writing, “Mike, you suck. Where were you for the last few years when he needed you? Never even calling him to see how he was after his back operation!”
