After hearing the tragic news, many of William’s fans took to the comments and paid tribute.

One follower commented: “This makes me so sad. Adalia Rose brought so much love and joy to the world. May she rest in peace.”

Another added: “She had the most amazing spirit and positive attitude. I loved her sass!!!”

Williams, from Texas, US, is believed to have been just one of 500 people around the world to have Progeria.

The condition means that a person’s body will age faster than it should, and those with it have a low life expectancy of just 13 years old.

As well as affecting growth, it can also cause issues with joints and a person’s voice.
