Instagram model dies before baby’s first Christmas

Social media is mourning the death of UK model and influencer Rachel Mee — better known as Rachel Kaitlyn — who passed away suddenly before her baby’s first Christmas. She was 25 years old. Her friend Claire Robinson confirmed the “devastating news” in a GoFundMe page set up for the late social media star’s son Kyro.

The Newcastle native, who was also an OnlyFans creator and dancer, was reportedly found dead on December 18, per the post, Jam Press reported. And while a cause of death has not been revealed, Robinson appeared to suggest that Mee had taken her own life.

“Kyro’s mummy Rachel sadly lost her battle with the pressures of this world,” the bereaved friend wrote, adding that her tot — who was born in March — won’t have his mom for his first Christmas.

“This Christmas will be Kyro’s first, and devastatingly his mummy will not be here,” she lamented. “We are all so saddened with this devastating news, how this world has failed such a beautiful young girl and how she felt she had no other option [than] to no longer be here.”

Robinson added that her deceased pal was “leaving behind her beautiful little boy whom she adored with all her heart.”

Rachel Mee — better known as Rachel Kaitlyn — boasted over 40,000 Instagram followers before she died.

At the time of her death, Mee boasted over 40,000 followers on Instagram, where she regularly uploaded glamor shots of herself in swimwear.

Robinson said she created the GoFundMe page to “raise some funds for Kyro’s future just to take a little stress away from Rachel’s family and to help in some way.”

Meanwhile, a second GoFundMe was set up by friend Chris Coppen to help cover the cost of Mee’s funeral. “I’ve been asked by the family of Rachel to set up a GoFundMe as there have been so many messages paying respects and asking how they can help,” he wrote.

"Unfortunately this world has failed another beautiful person with the pressures of life," wrote friend Claire Robinson on a GoFundMe page she set up for Mee's son Kyro.
