REAL Housewives of Miami star Alexia Echevarria's mom is dead after her battle with Covid-19.
The 54-year-old star revealed her mother passed away on her wedding day.
The former Bravo star shared the sad news in an Instagram post on Wednesday.
Alongside a series of photos that captured Alexia posing with her mother Nancy, the 54-year-old wrote: "Early this morning I lost my mom to the horrible and deadly COVID-19.
"The last couple of days have been a rollercoaster of emotions for me."
She revealed that Nancy's passing happened on her wedding day, writing: "I was on the road to marry the man of my dreams when I had to stop everything as my mother became ill.
"What was supposed to be the happiest day of my life today has turned out to be the saddest."
Alexia is set to wed fiance Todd Nepola, who she became engaged to in December 2019.
'STRENGTH AND BEAUTY'
Alexia then praised her mother, writing: "My mom, Nancy, was a woman of strength and beauty.
"Over the years I watched how she lived her life, HER WAY.
"My best friend, my psychiatrist but above all, she was my mother.
"My mother was the kind of woman that was respected, admired, inspirational and so ahead of her times."
The Bravo alum continued the emotional post by listing Nancy's accomplishments, writing: "She was a trailblazer in so many aspects of life. A political refugee from Cuba, who put herself through medical school in the 1960s.
"Raised three children on her own with the help of my grandmother. A feminist and liberal with her social views. She always had an educated opinion."
She added that her mom's "thoughts and views were so particular and unique," adding: "The crazy thing was she was always right!!
"She showed me to live unapologetically, never look back, and don’t regret the things you’ve done but the things you haven’t."
'CHERISH YOUR STORIES'
Alexia continued: "I will always cherish your stories, your wisdom, your strength, and your zest for life.
"I’ll always admire your love for connecting with people and I will always share the love for your second homeland, Spain.
"To say I will miss you does no justice for what I feel, no amount of tears can express the pain I feel in losing you but then again thank you for the honor of sharing a lifetime with me."
The RHOM star wrote that her mother is now "in a better place dancing and drinking champagne."
She concluded the note by addressing her mother directly, writing: "Please watch over us, as I need all the help from up above. I now have another angel. Until we meet again. 🕊"
Alexia is best known for starring on the first three seasons of RHOM, which aired its final season on Bravo in November 2013.
The TV personality is set to return for the RHOM reboot, which will air on Peacock.
The Bravo network decided to bring back the Miami spinoff after “much fan demand.”
