LONDON — 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.

Take That had been rumored to be among the acts performing at the closing ceremony of the London Olympics on Sunday.
