Colton Haynes‘ mother, Dana, died after battling with advanced cirrhosis of the liver and kidney failure for quite some time.

The 29-year-old “Teen Wolf” actor shared the tragic news with a heartbreaking message posted on his Instagram on Friday night.

“Today I lost my best friend, the love of my life…my momma,” Haynes expressed alongside a slideshow filled with pictures of him and his mother. “Words can’t express how incredible this woman was. I have so many things to say but I’m in a state of shock. I will always love you momma. RIP my angel.”

A couple months ago, Haynes was on cloud nine after marrying Jeff Leatham in Palm Springs, California. See more in the video below.
