“On what was supposed to be the happiest day of our lives ended in irreversible heartbreak.

“I feel like I cried an ocean. We never made it to the altar; 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 singer shared that he is “completely broken” following the loss.

“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,” he added.

“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,” Mann wrote.

“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.”

Hampson was a successful dancer who appeared in Harry Styles’ Treat People With Kindness music video and on the Spice Girls reunion tour in 2017.

The quote began: “Keep the honest moments close to your heart. The ones that make us most human.”

“What a gift it is to have a human life. If you look a little closer, there is always something to be grateful for.”
