The American Idol alum took to Instagram Saturday to share the devastating news, telling fans that the loss comes as a "huge hit" to their family.

"I am still processing the last 24 hours. I am absolutely devastated and heartbroken. I just recently lost my mother to cancer but I was blessed with the chance to say goodbye and I was processing it privately. We never got to say goodbye to our precious Hannah and it’s another huge hit to our family," Daughtry wrote alongside a photo Hannah. "Thank you all for your kind words and condolences. They are truly felt and appreciated. I am now taking time be present with my family as we attempt to heal from this devastating loss. Hannah, I love you. I miss you. I wish I could hold you. This hurts so deeply💔💔💔."

"My first born. I love you endlessly Hannah. Our family would like to thank you all for the outpouring of love as we grieve the loss of our daughter Hannah," Deanna shared. "We are awaiting the autopsy results to determine how Hannah sustained the injuries that caused her death. Our hearts are broken."

Hannah and her brother Griffin, 23, are Deanna's children from a previous relationship. The couple, who married in 2000, are also parents to 10-year-old twins Adalynn Rose and Noah James.
