The Take That star sends a message to his band mate after Gary's new baby is delivered stillborn.

Robbie Williams has expressed his condolences to Gary Barlow and his wife Dawn after their new baby girl was delivered stillborn.

In a statement released yesterday (6th August), the couple said they were "devastated" to have lost their child, who they had called Poppy Barlow.

"Our focus now is giving her a beautiful funeral and loving our three children with all our hearts," the pair added.

In a message on his website, Gary's Take That band mate Robbie wrote: "My thoughts are with Gary, Dawn and family right now."

The couple announced that they were expecting their fourth child back in April, around the same time Robbie confirmed he was expecting his first child with wife Ayda.

Gary poses for a picture with Dawn at a press event - the couple already have three children together:

Gary is currently filming the latest series of the X Factor along with Louis Walsh, Tulisa Contostavlos and Nicole Scherzinger. It will mark the second time the Take That singer has acted as a judge on the talent show.

Gary and Dawn have three other children, Daniel, Emily and Daisy.
