Khloe Kardashian is mourning the loss of a special fan.
The 33-year-old reality star Instagrammed a heartwarming photo last October with an adorable little girl named Hailey Cordova, and on Tuesday, Khloe shared on her app that Hailey died just a few weeks after they met. Hailey, 10, was suffering from cancer, and was a big fan of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star.
"Her father contacted me via Twitter and Kim even forwarded me some of the tweets," Khloe revealed of how she met Hailey. "She said she was one of my biggest fans, which I am so honored by, so I really wanted to meet her. I happened to be going to New York, where Hailey and her family live. It was meant to be!"
"One of the reasons why I love social media so much is that it connects me with people like Hailey and her family," she added. "I probably never would've been able to otherwise. I truly have never met a sweeter and stronger little girl with a personality of glitter and gold! A few weeks after I met Hailey, she passed away. The news was devastating, but I'm honored she wanted to meet me. ❤."
In the caption of her post with Hailey in October, Khloe wrote, "I believe that we don't meet people by accident, they are meant to cross our path for a reason. Thank you Hailey ❥."
During Hailey's visit, Khloe surprised her with a pink gift basket and the two also FaceTimed with Kim Kardashian West.
Khloe is currently pregnant and expecting a baby girl with boyfriend Tristan Thompson. As source told ET last month that she's more than ready to become a mother.
