DANCING with the Stars professional Keo Motesepe took to Instagram to reveal he is mourning the death of his mother.
The boyfriend of actress Chrishell Stause headed to social media to share the pain of his personal tragedy after his mom passed away from unknown causes on Wednesday.
Under an old photograph of his mom in a graduation gown, the 31-year-old wrote: "I am gonna miss you mama. I love you."
South African native Keo broke down in tears as he addressed the "painful news" in an emotional Instagram live.
He told followers: "I woke up this morning to the most painful news ever. I lost the queen of my heart."
The shock loss comes less than a week after the star reflected on the highs and lows of his past year.
Looking back at 2020, he posted a collage of photographs to Instagram that included snaps with girlfriend Chrishell, 39, and his DWTS co-stars.
The grid also included a sweet photo of his mother at the time, as well as an old photo of her smiling up at the camera.
"While there are no words to describe the many challenges 2020 had in store for us, I find myself inspired by not only those I hold close to my heart but humanity," Keo captioned the post.
"This year more than ever, I've seen people come together like never before and while uncertainty is still in the air, I hope we continue being there for each other.
"Thank you all for your kindness and and love, and may 2021 bring you joy, health and light."
Chrishell, who met Keo on the 29th season of the show, also recently lost her own mom and credited him for helping her get through.
In a heartfelt social media post, the Selling Sunset actress said Keo brought "such welcomed happiness" to her first Christmas without her mother.
The couple went official on social media last year after Stause gave details about the pro dancer "pursuing" her after the show.
She told Nick Viall's The Vial Files podcast: "Soon after we made it official, we went ahead and shared it [on social media]."
