Portuguese football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodriguez have been left devastated after losing their twin baby boy.
The news was released via a statement shared on social media and was announced with the couple’s “deepest sadness.”
“It is the greatest pain that any parents can feel,” said the 37-year-old Manchester United legend.
“Only the birth of our baby girl gives us the strength to live this moment with some hope and happiness.”
Ronaldo then thanked the doctors and nurses “for all their 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,” he concluded.
Ronaldo and Rodriguez announced their pregnancy to great fanfare in October last year, with the sexes of the twins later revealed to be one girl and one boy.
