UPDATE: Christina took to Instagram on Thursday to share, "The last 24 hours have been an emotional roller coaster but i'd like to thank everyone for being so supportive throughout my sister Danielle & Richards pregnancy. The both of them have shown the true measure of courage and faith for the last 9 months and I can't praise them more. Our family was blessed to have met our little Angel Baby Richie. We were fighting for him and with him the whole way and are now coping with the direction in which fate took. I ask that you keep him and our entire family in your prayers-- Especially Danielle, Richard, Naomi & Dj and know that we've all been touched by our little Guardian Angel. His memory will forever live on in our thoughts and our hearts. May he now rest in peace in the arms of our Heavenly Father. stay blessed."


The Milian family is in mourning.

Danielle Milian's newborn baby boy tragically passed away today just hours after birth. Danielle's son was diagnosed with Omphalocele, a birth defect that causes internal organs to grow outside of the body, while Danielle was still pregnant.

"Yesterday I was blessed with the birth of my Richie Bear. Unfortunately, last night he took his place with the Lord and we said goodbye," Christina Milian's sister wrote on Instagram today. "I so appreciate the prayers and support from everyone. He touched my heart and was perfect in so many ways."

The night before, the Christina Milian Turned Up star shared the exciting birth news with fans via Instagram. "Baby Richie has arrived! #prayersup for my #babyboy .. He is already a fighter," the 29-year-old E! star posted along with a photo of little Richie's tiny foot.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Danielle, her husband Richard and their entire family. All of us at E! send our heartfelt sympathies.

Baby Richie has arrived! #prayersup for my #babyboy .. He is already a fighter!?????????????? #moo #obaby
