The late Canadian model Stefanie Sherk had a & # 39; history of depression & # 39; and & # 39; recent suicide ideas & # 39; according to a report published by the Los Angeles Coroner.

The 43-year-old star died after trying to drown in the pool at her home in Sherman Oaks, California on April 12.

Sherk & # 39; s father and her Oscar-nominated husband, Demian Birchi, discovered the actress at the bottom of the pool with weights on her back and ankles. Her father tried to perform CPR, but the model never regained consciousness and was declared dead eight days later on April 20.

It is unclear when the couple took the plunge, but when Bichir was questioned about wanting to marry Sherk in 2014, he replied: & # 39; It's really hard to really know if something is forever. I never plan that. You love who you love every day and you expect that to last forever.

& # 39; But you also have to be honest if things aren't right. And then instead of 14 children everywhere and 18 marriages, you have to be smart and truthful and honest to the people you love. If you are lucky enough to go to the next level, that is nice too. & # 39;
