Danielle Hampson, fiancée X-Factor contestant Tom Mann, they died on, as their wedding weekend was supposed to be. She was 34 years old.
It is unclear how Hampson died, but it pays tribute to the publicist who shared her son Bowie with her fiancé. The couple was supposed to get married on Friday, June 17.
“I can’t believe I’m writing these words, but my dear Dani – my best friend, my everything and more, the love of my life – passed away in the early morning hours of Saturday, June 18.” wrote Mann on Instagram.
“What was supposed to be the happiest day of our lives ended in an irreversible breakdown of heart. I feel like I cried the ocean. We never got to the altar; either we had to say our vows, or dance our first dance, but I know you know that you were my whole world and the best thing that ever happened to me, Danielle. I will wear this ring that I should always wear as a sign of my unconditional love for you. ”
He added: “I am completely broken trying to process this and I honestly don’t know where to go from here, but I know I need to use all the strength I can muster for our little boy.
“I won’t be a sign to the parent you’ve already become, but I promise I’ll do anything to raise Bowie just the way we’ve always wanted. I promise he’ll know how great his mom was. I promise I’ll make you so proud.”
Danielle was also a dancer and had worked on it before Harry Styles’ a music video for his 2021 hit “Treat People With Kindness”.
Spice Girls tweeted a tribute to Dani: “We were very sad when we heard about the death of Dani Hampson who was part of the Spiceworld 2019 family. We send love and strength to Tom, Bowie and Dani’s family and friends.”
Since his “X-Factor” days, Mann has worked as a producer and songwriter, and has collaborated with Ellie Goulding, Lewis Capaldi and Rita Ora.
Tom, who gained fame in the band Stereo Kicks in 2014, and Dani were originally scheduled to get married in September 2020, but the couple postponed the wedding due to a coronavirus pandemic.
“It is strange to think about what was supposed to be today, but we think we are incredibly happy that the wedding date is all we lost,” she wrote on the Internet at the time. “Everyone has a story from 2020 – I’m just grateful that you’re so represented in my … I can’t wait to marry you, but the world has other plans.”
They discovered in June 2021 that Dani was pregnant with their first child, and in October 2021 they welcomed their son Bowie.
