A man wrote a heartbreaking tribute to his girlfriend and unborn baby who died shortly before their surprise pregnancy announcement.

Kylee Bruce, 24, died in a car accident in Deschutes County, Oregon.

Oregon State Police said in a press release that Bruce was killed when she tried to overtake another car and she lost control of her vehicle.

Her car slid into the path of oncoming traffic. She collided with two other cars and died at the scene.

After her death, her boyfriend, Brandon Forseth, shared the heartbreaking news along with a photo of an ultrasound image, resting on three socks named “Brandon,” “Kylee,” and “Baby.”

In the post he wrote: “You made me promise not to announce our baby to the world until 20 weeks when we found out the sex.

“We were going to make a funny announcement video and share it with everyone. You were 18 weeks pregnant with my first child, and I lost you both last night.

“Even though I hadn’t met my baby, the amount of love and excitement I had in my heart was unlike anything I’d ever felt. Listening to its heartbeat for the first time on the ultrasound, staring at the ultrasound pictures on my fridge in awe of the little life growing inside of you.

“I couldn’t wait to be a father and I felt so blessed everyday that it would grow up with you as its mother.

“You would have been the best mom Ky. You made me so happy, you were my future. Everything I did, as hard as I’ve worked, every decision I made, had you and your happiness in mind.

“I could feel the warmth and purpose our child gave you, and I knew I needed to be the best man I could possibly be for both of you, to keep you comfortable and safe.

“I couldn’t keep you safe last night. I should have went with you to Bend like you asked. I shouldn’t have been too tired, and maybe things would have worked out differently.

“I miss you so much Ky. I’ve always been able to fix things and solve problems for people, but I don’t know what to do from here. I feel helpless. I’m still waiting for you to walk in the door.

“I love you so very much Kylee, I know you’ll be the best Mom in heaven to our little one when he/she is born in June. I wish I could see its little face just one time. I know it would have been beautiful just like its mother.

“Rest in Peace Kylee Bruce. Rest in Peace Braylee or Talon, daddy loves you so so very much.”

24 hours after this post, Forseth wrote that he received heartwarming messages from people around the world. He also had new 2,000 friends requests on Facebook and he got $23,400 for her family’s GoFundMe page for funeral expenses. Their GoFundMe goal was $12,000.
