Mayte Garcia’s New Memoir Details Prince as a Father to Their Late Son Amiir and The Loss That Tore Them Apart

"I don't think he ever got over it."

It’s hard to believe that we’re a month away from the one-year anniversary of Prince’s untimely passing. However, for fans still coping with the loss of the late 57-year-old singer, there is some bittersweet news. Recently Prince’s ex wife, Mayte Garcia, revealed the release of her memoir, The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince, which will touch on Prince’s life as an artist, husband and yes, a father. Back on October 16, 1996, Prince became the father to a little boy named Amiir – Arabic for prince.

Unfortunately, the baby had Pfeiffer syndrome type 2, a rare genetic disorder which includes systematic abnormalities and several bodily deformities. Amiir lived just six days. Although Prince’s time as a parent was short-lived, Mayte admits the loss of their child had an everlasting effect on both of them, and their relationship, something she discussed on VH1’s Hollywood Exes in the past.

“I don’t think he ever got over it. I don’t know how anybody can get over it. I know I haven’t.”
