After a three-year battle with ovarian cancer, Pierce Brosnan's daughter Charlotte has died, Brosnan, 60, tells WHO exclusively.

"On June 28 at 2 p.m. my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life, having succumbed to ovarian cancer," Brosnan, 60, said in a statement.

"She was surrounded by her husband Alex, children Isabella and Lucas and brothers Christopher and Sean."

"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," the actor continues. "We thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences."

Charlotte, who was 41, passed away in London. She leaves behind husband Alex Smith, their daughter, 14, and son, 8.

Charlotte's mother, Cassandra Harris, also died of ovarian cancer. She passed away in 1991 while married to Pierce, after losing her own mother to the same disease as a teenager.
