'Wayne's World' star Dana Carvey's eldest son has died aged 32.

The 68-year-old star has confirmed his boy Dex Carvey died "of an accidental drug overdose", and Dana admitted he and his wife Paula will "miss him forever".

In a joint statement posted on Instagram, Dana and Paula wrote: "Last night we suffered a terrible tragedy. Our beloved son, Dex, died of an accidental drug overdose. He was 32 years old.

"Dex packed a lot into those 32 years. He was extremely talented at so many things - music, art, film making, comedy - and pursued all of them passionately.

"It's not an exaggeration to say that Dex loved life. And when you were with him, you loved life too. He made everything fun. But most of all, he loved his family; his friends and his girlfriend, Kaylee.

"Dex was a beautiful person. His handmade birthday cards are a treasure. We will miss him forever."

The couple - who also have son Thomas, 30 - admitted they are praying for anyone who is "struggling with addiction" or knows someone who is.

They added: "To anyone struggling with addiction or who loves someone struggling with addiction, you are in our hearts and prayers.

"Dana and Paula"

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Dex passed away on Wednesday evening (15.11.23).

Paramedics are said to have tried to revive Dex, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Like his 'Saturday Night Live' star father, Dex was a stand-up comedian, and opened for his dad in 2016 Netflix special 'Straight White Male'.

Following Dex's death, Dana posted a picture of the pair working together on Instagram.

He wrote in the caption: "Dex and me working together. What a joy."
