Dani worked as a PR exec at Knowles Communications. She was a talented dancer and actress who recently appeared in the video for Harry Styles's "Treat People With Kindness." Dani and Tom are believed to have started dating in 2015, per Daily Mail.
They got engaged in 2019, months after purchasing their first property in the U.K. They were planning on getting married in the second half of 2020 but postponed their big day because of the COVID-19 pandemic, per Us Weekly.
Dani and Tom announced their first pregnancy in the summer of 2021, welcoming a son, Bowie Andrew Mann, in October 2021. In his message to his late fiancée, Tom pledged to make Dani proud by raising Bowie well.
"I will do my everything to raise Bowie just the way we always wanted. I promise you he will know how amazing his mummy was. I promise to make you so so proud," Tom wrote.
