We're happy to report Selena Gomez and her family are doing OK.

The pop star and former Disney princess has broken her silence since tragedy struck when her mom recently suffered a miscarriage.

"Belated Merry Christmas everybody," Gomez tweeted and posted on Facebook this afternoon. "I can't thank you enough for all of your thoughts and prayers. I love you all so much and we hope you and your family had a beautiful Christmas!"

She not only signed the message from herself, but also included her mom, her stepdad and "our guardian angel Scarlett."

Gomez announced on Twitter late last month that mom Mandy and stepfather Brian Teefey were expecting their first child together. Sadly, Mandy miscarried mere weeks later.

Gomez subsequently pulled out of two radio station holiday shows to be with her family. She is expected to perform in Times Square during MTV's live New Year's Eve special.
