Take That Singer Gary Barlow And Wife Lose Baby

Musician Gary Barlow and his wife Dawn say their daughter was stillborn, and are asking for privacy.

In a statement released Monday, the couple said they were devastated by the loss of Poppy Barlow, who was delivered stillborn on Saturday.

They said their focus is “on giving her a beautiful funeral and loving our three children with all our hearts.”

They also said, “ We’d ask at this painful time that our privacy be respected.”

The couple have a son and two daughters.

Barlow, a member of Take That and judge of TV talent show “The X Factor,” was organizer of June’s huge Buckingham Palace concert celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.
