Sad news for the Brosnan family!

James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan, 60, just lost his daughter Charlotte to ovarian cancer, People reports. Charlotte's mother died of the same disease in 1991 while still married to Pierce, and Charlotte's grandmother before that.

"On June 28 at 2 p.m. my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life, having succumbed to ovarian cancer," Pierce told People. "She was surrounded by her husband Alex, children Isabella and Lucas and brothers Christopher and Sean." 

"My darling daughter"! Our hearts are breaking over here, as hearts are wont to do when someone outlives their own child.

Charlotte was surrounded by family at the time of her death, including her husband Alex, her brothers Christopher and Sean, and her children, 14-year-old Isabella and 8-year-old Lucas.

"Charlotte fought her cancer with grace and humanity, courage and dignity. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our beautiful dear girl. We pray for her and that the cure for this wretched disease will be close at hand soon," Pierce added.
