According to E! News, Selena was at Power 106's Cali Christmas 2011 concert in Los Angeles this past Friday night when she was told of the tragedy. Gomez rushed to leave the show and headed home to be by her mother's side.
Fans of the star, who is an only child, are well aware of Selena's desire to have a sibling. Just this past Thanksgiving, an over the moon Sel joyously tweeted: "Momma and Brian are finally letting me share the news... My mommys carrying my baby brother or sister :) I'm the happiest girl in the world!"
Yesterday, in the wake of the painful experience, lifelong best friend Demi Lovato took to her own Twitter to send Selena positive thoughts during the tragedy. "@selenagomez I love you" tweeted the star.
Our own thoughts and prayers go out to Selena and her family during this trying time.
