Adalia Rose Williams, a social media star who documented her life with early aging disorder, died on Wednesday, according to posts on her social media accounts. She was 15 years old.

“On January 12, 2022 at 7 p.m., Adalia Rose Williams was released from this world,” read a post on her Facebook and Instagram accounts on Wednesday. “She walked in and walked away quietly, but her life was far from it. She touched MILLIONS of people and left the biggest imprint on everyone who knew her.”

The post continued: “She is no longer in pain and is now dancing to all the music she loves.”

Williams – who has amassed a total of more than 15 million followers on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube – was known for her bright personality, sharing videos about makeup tips, her life and her family members.

Her mother, Natalia Pallante, told the New Zealand Herald in 2018 that Williams was diagnosed with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome when she was around 3 months old.

The rare genetic condition, also known as progeria, causes children to age faster, including symptoms such as developmental delay and alopecia (hair loss), according to MedlinePlus.

At any given time, there are only about 400 children worldwide living with progeria, according to the National Organization for Rare Disorders.

Many fans and followers, including fashion designer Michael Costello, mourned the loss of Williams on social media and offered their condolences to her family.

Costello, who created a set of bespoke dresses for Williams in 2019, wrote that her “heart is broken”.

“Adalia has been so special to everyone she has met,” Costello wrote in a post Wednesday. “He was an angel.”

Williams’ family did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Friday.
