Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo and his longtime girlfriend Georgina Rodríguez announced the death of their infant son on Monday (April 18) morning.
The couple announced last year they were expecting twins – a boy and a girl.
On Monday, Ronaldo shared that their newborn baby boy has passed away.
“It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that our baby boy passed away. It is the greatest pain that any parents can feel,” Ronaldo wrote. “Only the birth of our baby girl gives us the strength to live this moment with some hope and happiness.”
“We would like to thank the doctors and nurses for all their expert care and support. We are all devastated at this loss and we kindly ask for privacy at this very difficult time. Our baby boy, you are our angel. We will always love you.”
