Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery has heartbreakingly lost her fiancé, John Dineen.
Dineen passed away at just 34 on Sunday after battling a rare form of cancer.
According to People Magazine, the actress and Dineen's family were by his bedside at Ireland's Marymount Hospital when he died.
Dineen was reportedly diagnosed earlier this year and went to Germany seeking treatment but ended up at home with his family in Ireland.
Dockery first opened up about their relationship in 2014, saying he was "a wonderful man in my life from Ireland".
Engagement rumours surfaced when she reportedly showed off her ring on the Downton Abbey set.
Although they were very private about their relationship, it seemed obvious that they truly loved each other.
Dockery released the following statement to WENN: The family is very grateful for the support and kindness they have received but would kindly request that they are left to grieve in private.
