Roger Moore 'devoted' to late stepdaughter

Sir Roger Moore made sure his stepdaughter's life was "full of love and happiness" in the final months before her death.

The 88-year-old star and his wife Kristina Tholstrup "practically moved in" with Christina Knudsen, who lost her battle with cancer aged 47 on Monday (25.07.16), shortly before she passed away surrounded by the couple.

A source said: "Roger and her mum were always at Christina's house while she was poorly.

"They were completely devoted to her and made sure her final months were full of love and happiness."

Roger and Kristina have been left "completely devastated" by the awful news.

The source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "They are all completely devastated but they were always there for her unconditionally."

Roger - who played James Bond in seven films, including 'Live and Let Die' - confirmed Christina, who was known as Flossie, had passed away on his official Twitter account on Tuesday (26.07.16).

He wrote: "Our beautiful daughter Christina (aka Flossie) lost her battle with cancer 25 July at 10am. We are heartbroken ... We were all with her, surrounding her with love, at the end. (sic)"

Kristina - who is Roger's fourth wife - had Christina with ex-husband Hans Christian Knudsen, who killed himself after having been accused of tax evasion.

Christina had worked in property development and interior design and launched social club Ochun for singles in London in 2014.

She was half-Swedish and half-Danish and lived in the English capital city from 1997.

Christina once dated Skype co-founder Janus Friis for four years and was married to investment banker Nikolaj Albinus, but their union only lasted a year before they divorced.
