**CONTENT WARNING: Stillbirth/miscarriage**

Thor Bjornsson and his wife heartbreakingly announced the stillbirth of their baby daughter.

'The Mountain' shared on Instagram: "Grace Morgan Hafthorsdottir born Nov 8th at 21 1/2 weeks gestation."

The Game of Thrones star and his wife Kelsey Henson announced last month they were expecting their second child together.

Just weeks ago, they shared snaps of Henson's baby bump and their three-year-old son, who was excited to become a 'big brother'.

Their daughter was due to be born in March 2024.

Sadly, the couple wrote that after a 'noticeable decrease in movement', it was found her heart had stopped beating.

They announced the heartbreaking news on social media.

The couple took to Instagram this morning (10 November) to announce their heartbreaking loss.

Alongside images from the birth, the star and his wife wrote: "T.W stillbirth/delayed miscarriage. It is with great sorrow that we announce the birth of our daughter, Grace Morgan Hafthorsdottir born Nov 8th at 21 1/2 weeks gestation.

"After a noticeable decrease in movement we found out her heart had stopped beating. Words cannot describe our pain of this loss or our happiness at being able to spend time with our daughter.

"She is absolutely beautiful, with blonde lashes and brows and a little smile for mom and dad.

"The love we feel for her is overwhelming. The grief we feel will be with us forever but so will the love. All of our hopes and dreams for her have been taken away from us but I know I will be with her again.

"Her spirit lives on through us and her siblings. We ask that you respect our privacy at this time as we grieve this unbearable loss.

"Thank you all for any kind words and support."

The pair previously announced they were expecting after going through IVF.

As well as sharing his son Stormur with Henson, Björnsson is also dad to a daughter named Theresa Líf, who he shares with his ex-girlfriend Thelma Björk Steimann.

The professional strongman has been married to Henson since 2018.

They tied the knot in his home country of Iceland.

Bjornsson wrote on Instagram at the time: "It is with great pleasure that I now get to call Kelsey Morgan Henson my wife!"

After a journey with infertility, the pair had undergone an IVF journey to get pregnant with their second child together.

Following today's heartbreaking announcement, Bjornsson and Henson have been flooded with love and support from fans as they send their condolences over the loss of their daughter.
