Tom Mann is still trying to find the words for his insurmountable loss.
He’ll likely be trying to many days, weeks, months and years to come, too.
For now, however, the singer — who appeared on The X Factor in 2014 — has come up with the best tribute he can, having written a message to his fiancee one week after her shocking death.
“There are honestly no words to describe just how much I miss you, Dan,” Mann wrote alongside a photo of himself and Dani Hampson.
He added simply:
“Forever & always.”
Hampson worked as a PR executive and also a dancer, most recently working in the latter role as part of a Harry Styles music video in 2021.
She passed away at 34 years old on June 18 — the day she was set to marry Mann.
“On what was supposed to be the happiest day of our lives ended in irreversible heartbreak,” the artist wrote on June 20.
“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.”
The former Stereo Kicks member continued as follows:
“We never made it to the alter [sic]; 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.”
No cause of death has been announced for Hampson, who reportedly had no serious health ailments prior to her passing.
Later on in his original post, Mann wrote that he was “completely broken” by the loss — but vowed to call on “any strength I can muster” to care for their son, who was born in October 2021.
“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,” the U.K. native wrote. “
I promise you he will know how amazing his mummy was. I promise to make you so so proud.”
The couple got engaged in 2019 and had planned to get married in 2020, until the COVID-19 pandemic forced them to push their nuptials back to this month.
Shortly after Hampson passed away, her dad wrote on Instagram:
“She was the beating heart of our family, the loving, successful, intelligent daughter who always put everybody before herself, and as a result was loved by everyone.”
And her brother added:
“The outpouring of love we have already witnessed is a testament to the wonderful person you were. I will love you forever, my beautiful sister.”
