Country singer Mindy McCready's boyfriend and father of their 9-month-old son committed suicide.

McCready's rep, Kat Atwood, confirmed to People magazine that David Wilson died Sunday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was 34 years old.

Atwood says "they're working on funeral arrangements and figuring out where to go from here." McCready released a statement on Monday mourning Wilson and called him her "soulmate."

Atwood says McCready, who's faced many personal struggles, is "surrounded by people who love her and are there for her."
