Irish model Emily MacKeogh has paid an emotional tribute to her fiance Killian Roche following his sudden death over the weekend.
The couple, who announced their engagement in February, were about to begin a new life together in Dubai.
The pair had just moved over, when he fell ill and collapsed in their hotel. Some hours later, Killian tragically passed away.
“You made me the happiest I’ve ever been, every second of every day,” Emily began.
“You were the better half of my whole, my best friend, my rock, the most intelligent, handsome, funny and loving person I have ever met!
“I’m never going to stop loving you and I want everyone to know just how amazing you were.
“We kept it quiet but we moved to Dubai to start our new life together over the weekend and you were taken from us just a few hours after landing.”
She continued, “We are still trying to get you home and get answers. Our immediate families have flown from all over the world to be here, thank you for all your messages of support.
“Killian was about to start his new role on Monday as Head of Digital for Wavemaker for the Middle East and North Africa.
“Proud doesn’t even begin to describe. He was so loved by all of us and always will be.”
Our thoughts are with Emily and his family at this difficult time.
