Deborah Aday posted a tribute to her late husband on Facebook
“Missing my beautiful husband,” Deborah wrote over a Facebook photo of the performer sitting by a table at home with what appeared to be their pet dog.
The couple had been married for nearly 15 years at the time of Meat Loaf's death after they tied the knot in 2007.
Meat Loaf — who was born Marvin Lee Aday before changing it to Michael Lee Aday — died at age 74 on Jan. 21, 2022. The singer and actor was surrounded at the time of his death by Deborah and daughters Amanda and Pearl whom he shares with his first wife, Leslie Aday.
Pearl also paid tribute to her late father over the weekend in an emotional message on Instagram.
“One second live smile,” she wrote as she shared a boomerang clip of the pair smiling together. “I love you, Dad. I wish we were allowed more time.”

“This day was a good visit. Nashville. I remember holding your hand between easy chairs," she added. "You listened to the new rough demo of the song I’d just written with @warddavismusic. We laughed. You told me about the new record you wanted to make. We ate bad take-out.”
“It was cold outside. The TV was on as always. We sat for hours until it got dark. We gave big hugs,” Pearl continued. “Grateful I caught this tiny moment. We miss you and we love you. A flash.”
The heartwarming family tributes come after Deborah posted a birthday message to her husband on what would have been his 76th birthday in September.
“A very Happy 76th to Meat today!!!” she wrote on Facebook at the time. “Truth be told, we celebrated birthdays simply (not that there weren’t some more memorable birthdays along the way), but we most definitely acknowledged the special day.”
“The one faithful tradition we had was a cake or muffins with candles lit and singing the “Happy Birthday” song we all know so well. Obviously, I got the better end of that deal because Meat had such a beautiful voice,” Deborah continued, adding, “Thank you all for celebrating this special day with me!”
