Kelly Brook has been left "devastated" after suffering a miscarriage.

The 31-year-old model-and-actress - who was almost five months pregnant with her and Thom Evans' first child - was rushed to hospital late last week but doctors were unable to save the baby girl.

Her spokesperson said: "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. There will be no further comment."

Kelly is currently at home with Thom and her mother Sandra after asking friends to give her time and space to grieve.

One pal told the MailOnline website: "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."

The 'Piranha 3D' star - who fell pregnant shortly after she started dating Thom - is said to be "inconsolable" over her loss.

A source told The Sun: "Kelly is absolutely devastated.

"The baby wasn't planned but she was thrilled and it would have been the best loved little girl in all the world.

"She has always wanted children and a family and although she hasn't been with Thom long they were so excited about becoming parents.

"Now all those dreams are shattered and poor Kelly is inconsolable. Thom is being a tower of strength to her but he's grieving too."
