Cristiano Ronaldo writes on Instagram that he and his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez are in mourning after experiencing “the greatest pain parents can feel”.
The couple announced in October last year that they were expecting twins, but now write that only the daughter survived. Manchester United player Ronaldo writes that the boy did not survive, in a post that is also signed by Rodriguez.
– Only the birth of our daughter gives us the strength to get through this time with some hope and joy. We are devastated after this loss, the Portuguese writes further.
He asks for privacy in a challenging time.
– Our boy, you are our angel. We will always love you, the couple writes in the end.
Ronaldo is already the father of Cristiano Jr, the twins Eva and Mateo and Alana Martina. The latter he got together with Rodriguez.

Your pain is our pain, @Cristiano 💔
Sending love and strength to you and the family at this time. https://t.co/24oyEV8CQi
