London: Kelly Brook, who was nearly five months pregnant, has been left ‘devastated’ after losing the baby girl she was expecting with her boyfriend and former rugby union international Thom Evans.

The striking model, 31, was rushed to hospital at the end of last week, but tragically suffered a miscarriage.

“I can confirm that Kelly and Thom have very sadly lost their baby. They request that everyone please respects their privacy at this very painful time,” a spokesperson of the star told the Daily Mail.

“Kelly is understandably devastated, she’s at home and she’s being looked after by Thom and her mum Sandra. There’s nothing you can say to anyone at a time like this – she just needs to be allowed some time alone to grieve,” one of her friends said.

Brook had announced she was pregnant after just three months of dating Evans.
