Singer Christina Perri has shared the awful news that she's suffered another pregnancy loss – after previously suffering another miscarriage.
The 34-year-old A Thousand Years hitmaker, which has been listened to more than 700 million times on Spotify, announced just days ago to her fans that she was going into hospital to deliver her daughter early.
And now she has taken to her official Instagram account to heartbreakingly tell her followers that her and husband Paul Costablie's baby was "born silent".
Christina shared a snap of her holding her baby's tiny hands as she paid her tribute in the caption.
She wrote: "last night we lost our baby girl. she was born silent after fighting so hard to make it to our world.
"She is at peace now and will live forever in our hearts."
Paul also shared the same photo with his own caption to go with it.
He wrote: "It’s been a rough couple weeks and we’re so grateful for the outpouring of love and prayers from you all."
Christina had previously revealed she was suffering complications during her pregnancy.
She had been keeping fans up to date throughout her trimesters but was sadly hospitalised last week.
On Tuesday last week, Christina wrote on her Instagram Story: "Hey friends. Well, nothing ever goes as we plan.
"Baby is having an issue, so I'm gonna be here till it's time for baby to come out. Which might have to be very soon. Which is very early."
She continued: "Please send some love from your heart to the little heart beating in me that we all make it through this.
"I'm grateful for doctors and nurses and will do whatever they suggest we do."
But by Friday the situation had worsened and the star said her baby needed emergency surgery after the birth as she had a birth defect known as jejunal atresia.
She wrote: "We met with the surgeon and she's amazing. Baby has jejunal atresia but we won't know how severe til [sic] surgery."
Jejunal atresia is when the intestine fails to develop properly and the membrane connecting the small intestines to the abdominal wall is not completely developed or is completely absent.
The intestine then twists an artery that supplies blood to the colon creating a blockage.
