Roger Moore has announced the death of his stepdaughter, Christina Knudsen.

The 88-year-old former James Bond actor says on social media and his official website that Knudsen died at age 47 Monday following a battle with cancer. The announcements don’t say where Knudsen died.

Moore says on Twitter that “we were all with her, surrounding her with love, at the end.” He adds “we are heartbroken.”

The half-Danish, half-Swedish Knudsen was the daughter of Moore’s wife, Kristina Tholstrup.

The longtime London resident worked in interior design and property development and opened a private social club for singles in 2014.
