Cristiano Ronaldo Loses Baby Son

Cristiano Ronaldo has announced the death of his baby son.

The footballer was expecting twins with his partner Georgina Rodríguez but on Monday evening (April 18) confirmed the devastating news of his baby son’s death on social media.

“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 doctor 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”, wrote the Manchester United star.

The footballer has four children. Cristiano and Georgina have a daughter called Alana Martina, who was born in November 2017.

His eldest son is 11-year-old Cristiano Jr, whose mother’s identity has been kept anonymous by the footballer.

United’s top goalscorer is also father to four-year-old twins Eva Maria and Mateo, who were born via an unknown surrogate in 2017.

The Portuguese footballer was praised for his performance on Saturday as he scored a hat-trick in Manchester United’s 3-2 win over Norwich City.
