Celeb Friends Show Their Support To Gary Barlow After Baby Loss

Celebrity friends are sharing their sympathies with Gary Barlow and his wife Dawn after the death of their unborn baby, Poppy.

Gary Barlow has received an overwhelming amount of support from his celebrity friends, following the loss of their unborn daughter, Poppy.

Gary’s Take That bandmates are all rallying around the distraught star after himself and his wife Dawn’s fourth child was delivered stillborn.

Robbie Williams, whose wife Ayda Field is due to have their first child next month, said; “My thoughts are with Gary, Dawn and family now.”

The news comes less than two weeks after Take That band member Mark Owen’s wife Emma gave birth to their third child, Fox India.

The boys joined together to send heartfelt messages to the singer and his family, after they lost their baby Poppy on Saturday.

A source said; “They are all utterly distraught for Gary. The boys are such a tight bunch and this has really knocked them all for six. They will always be there for him.”

Gary’s wife, Dawn, was just two weeks away from her due date when Poppy arrived stillborn.

Gary said the couple’s focus was on giving Poppy a beautiful funeral and keeping their children, Daniel, Emily and Daisy, as their number one priority. The Take That star still doesn’t know whether he will take part in Sunday night’s Olympic closing ceremony.

Composer Lord Lloyd-Webber worked with Gary Barlow to compose the official diamond jubiless song. He tweeted; “Dearest Dawn and Gary, Madeleine and I are devastated about the news of Poppy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.”

Fellow X-Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos wrote; “My thoughts and prayers are with @GbarlowOfficial and his wife Dawn tonight. Heartbreaking x”

Boyband JLS shared their sympathies, tweeting; “We send our condolences to @GbarlowOfficial and his family during this tough time. Our thoughts and prayers with you. Marv and the boys x”

Amelia Lily, who appeared on last year’s series, Barlow’s first as a judge, wrote: “Sending all my love out to @GbarlowOfficial and family xxx”
