Gary Barlow asks for privacy after confirming fourth child was delivered stillborn
Take That's Gary Barlow has revealed that his fourth child with wife Dawn has been delivered stillborn.
He issued an official statement on the heartbreaking news and explained that baby Poppy Barlow died on August 4:
"Dawn and I are devastated to announce that we've lost our baby. Our focus now is giving her a beautiful funeral and loving our three children with all our hearts."
"We'd ask at this painful time that our privacy be respected."
The couple's three other children are Daniel, 11, Emily, 9, and Daisy, 3, and this tragic event comes just a few weeks after Barlow's bandmate Mark Owen welcomed his third child.
Andrew Lloyd Webber took to social networking site Twitter earlier this evening (August 6) and offered his condolences, writing: "Dearest Dawn & Gary, Madeleine & I are devastated about news of Poppy. Our thoughts & prayers are with you and your family."
