The 25-year-old star of Chrisley Knows Best took to Instagram on the same day to share that her 10-year-old niece, Chloe Chrisley, was unharmed in the elementary school shooting, which resulted in the deaths of three adults and three 9-year-old children.

“Thank you so much for all the messages checking on Chloe. She is good, she’s safe. I feel such a level of guilt being able to say she’s okay. I am so beyond grateful, but there are parents today who don’t get to bring their child home,” she shared via her Instagram Story.

“This has really affected our community here in Nashville. It’s not far from where I live,” she went on. “It’s just awful. I don’t know how many lives it’s going to take for there to change, and it’s heartbreaking. My thoughts and prayers are with all these families, all the kids who have been affected by it.”

She went on to admit “it really just hits different when it could have been your child.”

“I saw the news this morning and I completely broke down. I rushed to her school to get her and that hug when she was coming out of school — she told me, ‘Ow, you’re hugging me too hard.”

She continued, “It was the greatest feeling in the world and my thoughts and prayers are with the families that are hurting today. Just remember to hug the little ones a little tighter tonight, thank God, and pray, pray, pray.”

Following a federal judge’s sentencing of her father Todd, 53, and mother Julie, 50, to a combined 19 years in prison for tax fraud, the podcaster became the primary guardian of her brother Grayson Chrisley as well as her niece Chloe.
