Hampson died hours before the wedding was set to begin, according to TMZ. Mann shared his pain with his Instagram followers. “I feel like I have cried an ocean,” he said. He went on to lament the wedding he had looked forward to and recalled what  June 18 was supposed to commemorate before tragedy struck.

“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,” he said. (RELATED: REPORT: Keyboard Musician From Famous Band Dead At Age 70)

The couple shares an 8-month-old son named Bowie, and Hampson had posted images of the family just days before she passed away, according to TMZ.

“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,” Mann said.
