COLOMBIAN beauty queen and actress Alejandra Villafañe shared a heart wrenching last post before losing her battle with cancer.

Alejandra passed away on October 21 after battling the disease for months – and her final post shared an intimate glance into her last days.

The post was captioned: "This video is a tribute to the family that is always there, to the friends who came and to those who became family.

"Thank you to a love that is for life. Thank you for living this intimate moment with so much respect. We love you, Alejandra Murcia."

In the touching video filmed by Murcia, Alejandra documented her final days and shaved her head alongside her long time boyfriend, Raúl Ocampo.

As the beauty queen begins to cry, Raul quickly kisses away her tears and the two begin laughing.

The couple then embrace and share a slow dance, before Alejandra begins shaving Raul's head as well.

The filmmaker posted the video and said: "We lit up the camera with Ale and Raul for the last time. This is their powerful intimacy.

"This is not a video of a couple cutting their hair, this is a manifesto for love, in love, for love and of love."
