“My beautiful sweet angel,” the 51-year-old filmmaker began the lengthy post. “I have loved you beyond words or description from the moment I felt you in my belly.

“You have been my joy my heart and all that was ever pure and real in my life,” she continued. “I wish I was with you right now. I wish I was with you. I don’t know how to live without you.”

Drena went on to express her desire to “spread the love and light” that Leandro had given her.

“You were so deeply loved and appreciated, and I wish that love alone could have saved you,” she said at the end. “I’m so sorry, my baby. Rest in Peace and Eternal Paradise my darling boy.”

Over the weekend, the actress tagged Leandro’s father, sculptor Carlos Mare, in a social media post.

She did not go into further detail about Leandro’s death. Robert, for one, has yet to respond to the news.

Drena is the eldest of Robert’s seven children. When he married her mother, Diahnne Abbott, in 1976, he adopted her. At the time, Drena took her then-stepfather’s surname.

Robert, 79, and Abbott, 78, divorced in 1988, more than a decade after the birth of their son Raphael, now 46.

The former couple became grandparents in 2003 when Drena and Mare welcomed their baby boy.

Drena resided with the teenager in New York City and just shared Mother’s Day images with him via Instagram. “Today was a good day,” Daredevil Films and Television founder Daredevil Films and Television captioned the May slideshow.

Robert is also the father of Toukie Smith’s twins Aaron and Julian, as well as Elliot, 25, and Helen, 11, with Grace Hightower. Gia, his daughter with Tiffany Chen, was born recently.
