Mayci said: "I blamed myself for years even though it wasn’t my fault. If I could go back in time to stop it, I would."
Some followers criticised her for texting him while he was driving.
One person said: "Yet that's bad but it's like kinda f***ed how you were texting him."
To which the mum-of-two replied: "I never knew that he was driving when he was texting me. So there was no way for me to know that.
"Before you make these assumptions and say that I was wrong and it's my fault, just know the whole story."
Mayci continued with the story that did take a turn for the better.
I blamed myself for years even though it wasn’t my fault. If I could go back in time to stop it, I would.
She said: "A year and a half after my boyfriend's passing I met [my partner]. I wasn't looking for a relationship as I was still mourning.
"But I couldn't help but fall for this man who loved me and accepted my son as his own. We got married and became a family.
"We wanted to grown our fam but had some trouble. But with the help of IVF we got pregnant! And then came our baby girl."
She ended the clip with a message of encouragement to those watching: "It gets better I promise."
