Cristiano Ronaldo on Tuesday, April 19 (Philippine time) announced that his newborn son has passed away.

The Manchester United star also revealed the birth of a baby girl with partner Georgina Rodriguez, with the pair previously stating that they had been expecting twins. "It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that our baby boy has passed away. It is the greatest pain that any parent 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," he posted on Instagram.

Ronaldo further asked for privacy during this time. "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," he added.

Ronaldo is a father to four other children: sons Cristiano Jr and Mateo, and daughters Eva and Alana.

In 2017, Georgina Rodriguez, who is Ronaldo's current partner, gave birth to a baby girl—her first with Ronaldo and the Portuguese star's fourth child.

In 2021, the couple then announced that they were expecting twins. (ANI)
