Gary Barlow is 'devastated' after his daughter was delivered stillborn.
The Take That frontman and his wife Dawn - who have children Daniel, 11, nine-year-old Emily and three-year-old Daisy together - have appealed for privacy as they focus on arranging a funeral for baby Poppy.
Gary said in a statement: 'Dawn and I are devastated to announce that we've lost our baby. Poppy Barlow was delivered stillborn on August 4th in London.
'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.'
Gary - who married Dawn in 2000, five years after they met when she was a dancer for Take That - announced he was to be a father again in February and revealed weeks later that Dawn was carrying a girl.
He recently spoke of how important being a parent is after he was crowned Celebrity Dad of the Year.
He said: 'I've been waiting for it for a long time. My kids are really
excited and I don't think they can quite believe it.
'Being a dad is a really important part of my life and it means a lot to
have won this award.'
