Devastation: Kelly Brook has been left heartbroken after losing her baby girl at nearly five months

Kelly Brook has been left ‘devastated’ after losing the baby girl she was expecting with her boyfriend Thom Evans.

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

Miss Brook had announced she was pregnant after just three months of dating former rugby union international Evans.

This evening, Miss Brook was resting at her farmhouse in Kent and a spokesman for the star told the Daily Mail: ‘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.’

A friend said: ‘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.’

Celebrities were quick to offer their condolences to the couple, with Denise Van Outen writing on Twitter: 'OMG.. That's awful news. I'm so sad for them x'
Dannii Minogue wrote: 'Sending big love to Kelly Brook and Thomas Evans.'

And Michelle Heaton added: 'Just awful news about Kelly brook.. It's happening far too frequently these days, I can't even imagine the hurt.'

Heartbreak: The baby was the first for Kelly and boyfriend Thom Evans

While Miss Brook admitted that the pregnancy was not planned, she said she was ecstatic at the turn of events - and claimed to have found 'The One' in Evans, a 26-year-old Scotsman.

She said: ‘That is what happens when you are in love - you surrender to whatever is to be. It wasn't a plan, but if it happened, it happened. We were boyfriend and girlfriend.'

The couple were seen strolling hand in hand in the London sunshine last week, with Miss Brook’s bump on display in a floral frock, and she added that despite her frequent trips to Los Angeles for work, Evans had been by her side.

She said they had been inseparable since they met last November at her birthday party as she gushed: ‘We have spent virtually every day together ever since.

'There was no game-playing, which is why I think our relationship progressed so quickly, because we haven't had to deal with egos.

'I love Thom and Thom loves me. We love being together. It is as simple as that.'

Resting: Kelly, seen in Los Angeles earlier this month, is now with her family in Kent

Miss Brook had excitedly announced the news of her pregnancy on Twitter last month, revealing: 'Thom and I are happy to announce we are expecting a baby girl. We are delighted XXXX.’

She had then been bombarded by offers of work and was signed up to design a maternity range for New Look.

Miss Brook is the latest in a string of celebrities to have suffered miscarriages, including Amanda Holden and Lily Allen.

Former Scotland international star Evans is a former teammate of Miss Brook’s ex Danny Cipriani.

Evans played for the London Wasps with Cipriani from 2004 to 2006.

However, the Zimbabwe-born sports hunk was forced to quit his career as a professional rugby player after he suffered a horrific spinal injury.

He is now hoping to become an action movie actor.

Trauma: Kelly looked happy and excited as she was spotted at her family home in Kent last month

Evans, formerly known as the 'pin-up of Scottish rugby' was almost paralysed when he collided with Welsh player Lee Byrne during a rugby union match in February 2010.

Despite a series of operations, he was forced to accept that he would never regain match fitness and retired from the game the following July.

He has since been taking acting classes in Los Angeles.

Evans’ brother Max still plays for the Scottish national team and the brothers are cousins of Radio Two DJ Chris Evans.

The DJ revealed live on air how he and his family had been keeping the pregnancy a secret for some time.

Miss Brook split from Cipriani in June last year after two years together. He now lives in Australia playing for the Melbourne Rebels.

She was spotted out on a couple of dates with Glee star Matthew Morrison over the summer, but nothing came of the flirtation and Evans has been her first relationship following her split with Cipriani.

The couple remained friends and Cipriani said: ‘Kelly told me in January that she was expecting. I’m really happy for her - she will be a great mum.’

During a recent interview and revealing picture shoot with Esquire magazine, Miss Brook, who was left grief-stricken by the death of her father Kenneth Parsons following a battle with cancer in 2007, referred to her ex-boyfriends, including Jason Statham, Billy Zane and Danny Cipriani, as ‘big kids’ and ‘show- offs’.

While posing provocatively in skimpy swimwear for Esquire Magazine, she said they all ‘needed to be the centre of attention’.

Speaking of Evans, she said: ‘He doesn’t need to be the centre of attention. The previous guys have been big kids really. Show-offs.’

And in a further dig to her former actor lovers Statham and Zane, she said of Thom: ‘He’s not an actor, so I don’t have to sit and watch all of his sh*t films.’

Kelly dated Jason Statham for seven years until 2004, before dating Billy Zane from 2004 to 2008 and then moved on to Danny Cipriani from 2008 until 2010.

While Miss Brook’s film career might not be as successful as Statham’s, the Piranha 3D actress made fun of herself by saying she’s made a career out of being a failure.

She said: ‘My mum tells me: ‘You fall in sh*t but come out smelling of roses!’
‘I’ve made quite a successful career out of being a failure.’
