Still grieving the death of iconic rapper DMX last month, his fiancée, Desiree Lindstrom, celebrated Mother's Day in a mournful tone, marking the occasion by posting a heartbreaking photo on Instagram.

Lindstrom, who was engaged to DMX in 2019, continues to mourn the rapper's death. In the caption of her post, she wrote that she and her son deeply missed DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons. She wrote:
"Today is the first Mother's Day with him being in heaven and not here with us!"
She expressed her undying love for the "Ruff Ryder's Anthem" singer, describing him as her and their son's angel. Lindstrom also thanked Exodus for coming into her life.
Besides feeling lucky as a mother to Exodus, Lindstrom expressed gratitude for her son for giving her joy and strength amid her trying times. She promised her son she would toughen up for him.
DMX, who is also an actor, died one week after suffering a heart attack.
Amid her loss, Lindstrom has found a strong support system. She revealed that Swizz Beatz and his wife, Alicia Keys, invited her to spend Mother's Day dinner with them.
Swizz Beatz, whose real name is Kasseem Daoud Dean, was DMX's closest friend and longtime collaborator. He was among the musicians who paid tribute to the late artist.
DMX passed away on April 9 at White Plains Hospital after suffering from a heart attack. In a separate post, Lindstrom thanked Swizz Beatz and the "Girl On Fire" singer for inviting her over for a Mother's Day dinner.
Aside from her, the power couple invited other friends. Lindstrom felt grateful for the chance to meet friends again, something she hasn't done much since DMX's death.
The pain still feels fresh for Lindstrom. On April 17, she shared a tribute to her fiancé, alongside an old photo of the first night they met. She described DMX as her best friend, her love, and her everything.
Lindstrom also got tattoos in honor of the legendary rapper. She inked the word "Dog Love," the title of a song he released in 2006, and an "X" in the same font he used when stylizing his name.
Like her, several celebrities, friends, and family members posted tributes for the late Grammy nominee. DMX's ex-wife, Tashera Simmons, also honored him in a heart-rending post.
