Pierce Brosnan and family are mourning the heartbreaking death of his 41-year-old daughter, Charlotte, who died last Friday of ovarian cancer. "On June 28 at 2pm my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life having succumbed to ovarian cancer," the Irish actor, 61, tells Us Weekly in a statement. "She was surrounded by her husband Alex, her children Isabella and Lucas and her brothers Christopher and Sean."

London-based Charlotte and husband Alex Smith shared daughter Isabella, 14, and son Lucas, 8.

Continued her grieving father: "Charlotte fought her cancer with grace and humanity, courage and dignity. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our beautiful dear girl. We pray for her and that the cure for this wretched disease will be close at hand soon. We thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences."

Brosnan was married to Charlotte's mother, Australian actress Cassandra Harris, from 1980 until her death -- also from ovarian cancer -- in 1991.

He adopted Charlotte and her brother, Christopher, in 1986.
