Cristiano Ronaldo, a Manchester United player, has lost a loved one.
Ronaldo, who only a few days ago set a new record with a hat-trick against Norwich City, is now in sadness following the death of his infant boy.
Following their announcement in December that they were expecting a boy and a girl, Ronaldo and his partner, Georgina Rodriguez, had the baby as a twin.
Ronaldo confirmed the news on Instagram, writing, “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 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.”
My condolences for their loss.
