CRISTIANO RONALDO announced today that one of his infant twins died shortly after his partner gave birth to them.
After their “angel” newborn baby sadly died, the football icon, 37, informed the world about his and Georgina Rodriguez’s anguish.
In October of last year, Cristiano and Georgina, both 28, revealed they were expecting twins, a boy and a girl.
However, the Manchester United star announced to his followers today that their newborn son had gone suddenly.
Despite his “deepest anguish,” he claimed his baby daughter is “giving us the power to survive.”
“It is with our deepest regret that we must announce that our newborn child has died away,” Ronaldo said on social media.
“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 all their expert care and support.
“We are all devastated at this loss and we kindly ask for privacy at this very difficult time.
“You are our angel, our beautiful child.” “You will always be loved by us.”
He released the graphic image online this evening, along with Portuguese and Spanish translations.
Ronaldo was already a father of four when Georgina became pregnant, with three of his children born to two surrogate moms.
“Delighted to announce we are expecting twins,” he and Georgina captioned a lovely photo of themselves clutching their baby scans in October.
“We’re bursting at the seams with love and can’t wait to meet you.”
Ronaldo is the father of Cristiano Jr., 11, Eva and Mateo, four, and Alana Martina, three, whom Georgina gave birth to.
He’s now a father of five, thanks to his newborn daughter.
Georgina met the Portugal sensation in 2016 while working for £10 an hour in a Gucci store in Madrid.
She is said to have captured his attention in the VIP section of a Dolce & Gabbana event.
Georgina has accompanied the five-time Ballon d’Or winner from Madrid to Turin and then Manchester as he transitioned from Real Madrid to Juventus and eventually Manchester United.
She was recently photographed wearing a pink outfit and driving an old school yellow Corvette.
She raved on Instagram in March this year about Ronaldo being the “greatest dad in the world,” along with charming photos of their cute family.
