Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo and his long-term girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez, who recently starred in her own Netflix docu-series, have shared the very sad news that their baby son has died. The couple were expecting twins together – a boy and a girl – and shared via social media last night that heartbreakingly, their son (whose name has not been shared) didn't survive the birth.
They added that the birth of their newborn daughter is giving them strength during this incredibly difficult time.
In full, the couple's joint statement reads: "It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that our baby boy has passed away. It is the greatest pain that any parents can feel. 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 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."
Ronaldo and Rodriguez share another daughter together, Alana Martina, who was born November 2017, and Ronaldo also has twins, Eva and Mateo, born via surrogate in June 2017 (however their mother has never been publicly confirmed).
Our thoughts are with the whole family during this very sad time.
