Tom Mann remains in mourning.
For the most tragic and understandable of reasons.
The former X Factor contestant lost his fiancee, Danielle Hampson, in truly stunning fashion last month:
Ever since, Mann has struggled to make sense of what transpired, while he’s also shared multiple heart-shattering posts after another on social media.
“My everyday person,” he wrote on his Instagram Stories on July 26, for example
“It’s so lonely without you.
“I miss the simple things. I miss you. I cannot remember the feeling of happiness or what life before felt like.”
As you can see above, the artist’s upload included a photo of Danielle — who was just 34 years old at the time of her death — wearing a white jumpsuit and sipping on a cocktail.
“I love you till the end of time,” Mann concluded.
Mann performed on The X Factor in 2014 and was then part of the band Stereo Kick
Hampson, for her part, worked both in public relations and also as a dancer, having appeared last year in a Harry Styles music video.
Danielle passed away on June 18.
A “completely broken” Mann confirmed her death in a sad Instagram post a couple days later.
“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,” read this message.
He then elaborated on the shocking timing of this tragedy.
“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.”
In this post, Tom vowed that he will wear what would have been his wedding ring as a sign of his “unconditional love” for Dani, who welcomed their son Bowie in October 2021.
“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,” Mann continued.
“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.”
