Selena Gomez's unborn sister was to be called Scarlett
"Belated Merry Christmas everybody.. I can't thank you enough for all of your thoughts and prayers. We appreciate every one of you.. I love you all so much and we hope you and your family had a beautiful Christmas! Love, Me, Momma, Brian and our guardian angel Scarlett. God bless."
On reading the messages, Gomez's fans quickly made 'Scarlett Teefey' a Twitter trending topic.
The baby was to be the first child of Gomez's step-father, Brian Teefey, and her mother, Mandy, 35 (see photo above), who married when the singer was five years old.
Gomez cancelled a series of personal appearances and concerts this month due to her family's tragic loss.
