According to People, Mann posted a photo of him and Hampson on Instagram stories Thursday, writing, “Nearly 3 weeks on from what will always remain the worst day of my life. Still in shock & still no words – my beautiful Dani is an indescribable loss.”
“Nothing can be said or done,” Mann went on, “but I need to acknowledge the immense amount of love, kindness & support that [our son] Bowie, Dan’s family, my family & I have received. It has overwhelmed us.”
Mann called this the “darkest of times,” but said he’s “found glimpses of feeling that union of love that has come from far & wide for our Dani.” He called Hampson “the best of the best.” Mann followed this message with another photo, this time of Hampson and their son Bowie.

Mann wrote that he would wear his wedding ring “as a sign of my unconditional love” for Hampson. He also promised to raise their son “just the way we always wanted,” making sure he knows “how amazing his mummy was.”
Mann competed on Series 11 of The X Factor UK in 2014, joining the boy band Stereo Kicks. They finished the competition in fifth place. He and Hampson reportedly started dating in 2015. They welcomed their son Bowie in October of last year.
