See 'Queer Eye' Stars Rob Elrod and His Sons Today!


When Queer Eye audiences met Rob Elrod, he was a single father from Kansas raising his two sons. However, it wasn't long until viewers needed to pull out the tissues. 

It turns out Rob's wife, Allison, was diagnosed with cancer shortly after giving birth to her youngest boy, Vincent. "We thought, 'It's breast cancer. Lots of people get it, they take care of it, you move on," Rob said on the show. "We weren't that lucky." 

The cancer had spread to Allison's brain and the mother-of-two passed away.
