How did Dani Hampson die? 'X Factor' star Tom Mann's fiancée dies on the day of their wedding
'I will wear this ring that I was always supposed to wear as a sign of my unconditional love to you,' a devastated Tom Mann wrote on his Instagram
Tom Mann, an 'X Factor' contestant, is devastated by the terrible passing of his fiancée Dani Hampson on their wedding day. Dani passed away on Saturday morning, June 18. Tom and Dani, who had been together for the past few years, have an eight-month-old son named Bowie.
According to The Sun, Tom, a member of the band Stereo Kicks, disclosed that the mother of his eight-month-old child had passed away at the age of 34 on the morning of what should have been their wedding. Dani, a publicist, had no known medical conditions, and her cause of death is still unknown. Tom participated as a solo artist for the 'X Factor' but was instead included in the group that advanced to the 2014 'X Factor' final. In the heartbreaking post, Tom, who has composed music for artists like JLS, Becky Hill, and Ronan Keating, swore to raise their son well.
“I can’t believe I am writing these words but my darling Dani - my best friend, my everything and more, the love of my life - passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning, 18th June. On what was supposed to be the happiest day of our lives ended in irreversible heartbreak. I feel like I have cried an ocean. We never made it to the alter; or got to say our vows, or dance our first dance, but I know you know that you were my entire world and the best thing that has ever happened to me, Danielle. I will wear this ring that I was always supposed to wear as a sign of my unconditional love to you," the contestant wrote in the devastating post.
In her honor, he continued by explaining how he intended to raise their son alone: “I am completely broken trying to process this and I honestly don’t know where to go from here, but I do know I need to use any strength I can muster for our little boy. I will not be a mark on the parent that you had already become but I promise I will do my everything to raise Bowie just the way we always wanted. I promise you he will know how amazing his mummy was. I promise to make you so so proud. The most beautiful person inside and out. The most incredible soul. We have lost such a special person and I am sure we are about to see an abundant outpouring of love that reflects that. I will try to find peace in your messages and comments, but right now I am grieving and I will be for a very, very long time.”
He concluded: “My darling Dani, the brightest light in any room, my world is nothing but darkness without you. I will miss you forever.”
Meanwhile, his friends hurried to express their sincere condolences, Lewis Capaldi writing: “Love you brother ❤️". At the same time, Nadine Coyle wrote: “Sending so much love, light & healing to you, Bowie & everyone who loved Dani!! ❤️❤️❤️.” Mimi Webb added: “Tom I’m so so sorry ❤️ sending all my love to you & thinking of you❤️ love you brother x we are with you.”
