‘Forever love’: Cristiano Ronaldo shares heartwarming picture holding his newborn daughter after Man United star and partner Georgina Rodriguez confirmed the devastating news the child’s twin brother died at birth.
Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has posted a heartwarming image of himself holding his newborn daughter on Saturday, less than two weeks after her twin brother tragically passed away.
Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodriguez, 28, revealed that their son had died at birth on April 18, but their daughter survived.
The 37-year-old has now shared a black and white image of himself cradling the baby, accompanied with the caption ‘Forever Love’ alongside a love heart emoji on Instagram.
The adorable picture, which sees the tot donning a knitted hat, was met with a plethora of supportive messages, with several of Ronaldo’s followers replying with red love hearts.
The couple have yet to announce a name for their little girl amid their harrowing loss.
Announcing his and Georgina’s heartbreaking loss earlier this month, Cristiano penned: ‘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.’
The footballer missed Man United’s mid-week match against Liverpool which saw fans at Anfield holding a minute’s applause for Ronaldo and his family and singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone.’
Following the devastating stillbirth, the couple and their other children returned home with their newborn daughter last Thursday, days after the footballer confirmed his partner had lost the child’s twin brother.
The striker shared a social media update shortly after their baby girl made the journey back from hospital following her birth.
Posting a photo for his 430million followers, Ronaldo cradled his daughter while accompanied by Spanish partner Georgina and their four children – three of which the footballer fathered through surrogates.
Captioning the post, he wrote: ‘Home sweet home. Gio and our baby girl are finally together with us. We want to thank everyone for all the kind words and gestures.
‘Your support is very important and we all felt the love and respect that you have for our family. Now it’s time to be grateful for the life that we’ve just welcomed into this world.’
