In a new memoir called "The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince," Mayte Garcia, Prince's ex-wife, talks about their son who was born in 1996 with a rare genetic disorder, Pfeiffer syndrome type 2, and died just six days later. Garcia said Prince never got over the toddler's death, according to the memoir, set to release April 4.

"I don’t think he ever got over it," Garcia told People magazine while talking about her late ex-husband. "I don’t know how anybody can get over it. I know I haven’t," she added. This week's issue of the magazine published some excerpts from Garcia's memoir, in which she wrote about her marriage and their son's tragic death.

Garcia, a dancer and now 43, describes in her memoir how excited Prince was after learning she was pregnant. The couple was delighted about raising a family together. They got married in 1996 and divorced in 2000. They named their baby boy Amiir which is the Arabic for the word "prince."

"I don’t know how to describe the look on my husband’s face. Pure joy," she told Fox News about Prince's reaction after seeing their son for the first time. "And then they held the baby up to those harsh lights. The elation on my husband’s face turned to pure terror," she added.

Garcia also wrote about what the doctors diagnosed and their advise for her pregnancy. One of the doctors asked her to undergo an amniocentesis to test for genetic abnormalities, although he warned her prior to the test that it might lead to a risk of miscarriage. The doctor said: "Sometimes the body is trying to release the fetus for a reason," Garcia wrote in her book. She also mentioned that her husband, Prince was totally against the idea and she wrote "My husband said, ‘No, we’re not doing that'."

Garcia also commented on her late husband's drug addiction and told People: "I never actually saw Prince doing drugs. He didn't want me to. I'm sure he knew what my reaction would be." Prince died last April due to an accidental overdose. Garcia said she "never saw him do anything, not even take an aspirin." However, she also mentioned an incident after a few weeks of their marriage when her late husband was taken to a hospital to get his stomach pumped, according a phone call she received from his bodyguards.
