Sharon Stone paid tribute to her 11-month-old nephew, who died of total organ failure.

The actress, 63, shared the news on Instagram after telling fans last week that River Stone was gravely ill and the family were praying for a miracle.

She said River, the son of Stone’s brother, Patrick, passed away on Monday, as she shared a touching video tribute featuring images of the little boy smiling while playing in bed.

Calculation wrote in the caption: “William Stone River September 8, 2020 – August 30, 2021.”

Following the news of his death, celebrities sent messages of support for the Basic Instinct star on social media.

Will & Grace star Debra Messing said: “Nooooooooooooooo. I am in disbelief. Oh Sharon there are no words except I am so sorry for the loss of your whole family. I pray for you all right now unimaginable. “

His co-star Sean Hayes said, “Ugh. I’m sitting here in tears. I’m so sorry, Sharon. What a beautiful boy. I’m sending all my love to you and your family.”

Leslie Jordan, an actor also known for his work on Will & Grace, said, “It breaks my heart. I’m in pieces right now.”

Actress Selma Blair wrote: “I’m so sorry. Monsignor.”

Stone initially revealed her nephew was in the hospital when she shared a photo of River on Friday that showed him intubated with several other tubes and wires around his body.

“My nephew and godson River Stone was found in his cradle with total organ failure today,” she said in the caption. “Please pray for him. We need a miracle.”
