Teen pop star Selena Gomez has axed two Christmas concerts over the weekend after her mother suffered a miscarriage.

The Disney star was ecstatic when her mother Mandy Teefey revealed she was expecting a sibling for the star last month.

Gomez wrote on after hearing the news, "Momma and (stepfather) Brian are finally letting me share the news. My mommys carrying my baby brother or sister. I'm the happiest girl in the world."

But now Gomez has dropped her scheduled performances to support her family after her mom reportedly lost the baby on Saturday.

She was due to perform at the B96 Jingle Bash 2011 at the Allstate Arena near Chicago, Illinois on Saturday, and on Sunday at 106.1 KISS FM's Jingle Bell Bash in Seattle, Washington.

The singer's representative revealed Gomez had axed the shows due to a "family emergency", and confirmed to her mom had suffered a miscarriage.
