The music world lost a tremendous talent with the tragic death of DJ and musician Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii, in April. He rocketed to fame in 2011 but retired from live performance in 2016 amid health problems and the stress of touring.

Last week, his family released a heartbreaking statement that said “He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace."  The statement left fans to wonder if Avicii committed suicide.

While we may never know the official cause of death, we continue to learn details about Avicii’s life. Tereza Kačerová, a Czech model, revealed last week that she and Avicii had been romantically involved and had been planning a future together. So ... who is Avicii's girlfriend?

Kačerová posted a video compilation of personal snapshots of herself and Avicii on her Instagram account this weekend. It’s clear from looking at them that they were very close and very happy together.

Here’s what we know about Avicci's secret romance, heartbreak, and the child he was planning to raise as his own:

1. She is a model from Czech Republic.

Kačerová is a 28 year old model from the former Soviet republic, though she grew up in the US. In addition to modeling, she’s done some acting and appearing in music videos. She was featured in Maroon 5’s video for the single Maps.

2. She’s a mother.

She has a young son name Luka, who she says was very attached to Avicii. In her farewell letter she says “I used to tell you that Luka will never remember a life without you. Now I hope that he will remember his life WITH you. I'll be there to remind him. I'll show him.”

3. She and Avicii have been together since last year.

The relationship between the model and the musician dates back at least to last Christmas. They were keeping their relationship quiet because, as she says in her emotional farewell letter to Avicii on Instagram, “I wanted to keep it OURS”.

4. They were planning a future together.

She says in her letter that she always expected that she would reveal their relationship to the world eventually, hopefully as part of starting a family together. She says, ‘But I thought, if I’m going to share this with the world, it will be when I’m pregnant with our child. Ohhh how that plan went awry.”

She also says she had been trying to persuade Avicii that their future daughter should be named Serafina.

5. She is utterly heartbroken by his death.

Her final letter to her lover will bring anyone to tears as she details her grief, saying "I've spent the last days waiting to wake up, waiting for someone to tell me this is some sick joke, some awful mistake. I think it's finally settling on me now that I will truly never get to see you again."

The world feels her pain, as we mourn a great talent gone far too soon.
