Mikala and his wife, Emma, welcomed two kids during their marriage, though, the details of their relationship are unclear.

Alongside a photo of a young Isabella and her dad, she wrote: “I’m in so much disbelief right now, this doesn’t feel real. I love you so much Dad and I wish I could give you one last hug.”

“I wish you were still here with us, you weren’t supposed to leave yet. This is too soon,” her caption continued. “I wish this never happened and we could just wake up and go surf together tomorrow morning.”
