The holidays should be a time for rejoicing but for Selena Gomez and her family, this year, it is a time for mourning. On the heels of reports her mother suffered a miscarriage, Selena thanked her fans for their support and mentioned her fallen sister-to-be's first name.

On her Facebook wall she wrote, "Belated Merry Christmas everybody. I can't thank you enough for all of your thoughts and prayers."
Selena added, "We appreciate every one of you. I love you all so much and we hope you and your family had a beautiful Christmas!"
Sadly, it appears her unborn sister's name was Scarlett. She signed off the post last night by stating, "Love, Me, Momma, Brian and our guardian angel Scarlett. God bless."
We continue to send our thoughts and prayers to Selena and her family.
