Sharon Stone posts heartbreaking tribute to late nephew River, 11 months, after he died of organ failure

SHARON Stone shared a heartbreaking tribute to her late nephew River, who died just days before his first birthday.

River passed away on Monday at just 11 months old after suffering total organ failure.



On Thursday, Sharon gave an update on how she was coping with the devastating ordeal.

The 63-year-old posted a photo of what looked like a hotel room with a grey couch and three paintings hung above it and a suitcase next to it.

She captioned the somber shot: "The stages of grief."

The Basic Instinct star's friends flocked to the comments to share the condolences.

SUPPORT FOR SHARON

Singer Michelle Williams wrote, "I'm so sorry!" and presenter Kelly Ripa posted: "No words."

Model Naomi Campbell penned: "Beyond words.

"Praying for God to lift and hold you up @sharonstone my sincere and deepest condolences to you and your family."

Sharon confirmed on Monday that River – who was her godson as well as her nephew – had died.

"River William Stone. Sept. 8, 2020 – Aug. 30, 2021," the movie star wrote on Instagram alongside a clip featuring the late baby.

The shocking news comes just a short time after the 63-year-old star shared a photograph of River in the hospital and told fans he was fighting for life.

She wrote: "My nephew and godson River Stone was found in his crib w total organ failure today. Please pray for him. We need a miracle."

River is Sharon's brother Patrick's son – last year she shared a picture of him leaving the hospital as an adorable newborn.

HER WORLD

The actress shared with the snap: "Look who’s going home: River William Stone, my brother Patrick and his wife Tasha’s new baby."

The Hollywood star is mom to three adopted sons: Quinn, 15, Laird, 16, and Roan, 21.

She previously wrote for Vogue: "I’m now a single mother with three adopted sons, and it has been the great privilege of my life to raise them.

"When you adopt, you realize any child could be your child, any person could be your relative.

"After that you never see the world in the same way again…"
