Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has announced that one of his newborn twins has passed away.
Ronaldo and his partner, Georgina Rodriguez, said they were expecting twins at the end of October 2021.
The 37-year-old said on Easter Monday “our baby boy has passed away” in a post on his social media channels.
“It is the greatest pain that any parents can feel,” Ronaldo’s post added.
“Only the birth of our baby girl gives us the strength to live in 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.”
