Following two days of private mourning, Tomlinson's family released a statement that confirmed this horrible news.

It reads as follows:

"It is with immeasurable sadness that Johannah Deakin's family said goodbye to Johannah in the early hours of Wednesday 7th December 2016.

"Earlier this year Johannah was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukemia that required immediate and continuous treatment. We respectfully request that the family are given time and space to grieve in private."

Along with the beloved One Direction member, Deakin is survived by six other kids: Lottie, 18, Felicite, 16, twins Daisy and Phoebe, 12, and twins Ernest and Doris, 2.

Our hearts goes out to all of them.

The most moving message of all, though, came from Tomlinson’s own sister, Félicité, who simply posted the image of a broken heart.

What else was there for her to even say, right?
