In October, Ronaldo announced that he and Rodríguez were expecting twins, and in December revealed they were expecting a boy and a girl. Earlier this week, however, he announced that their son had sadly passed away.
“Home sweet home,” Ronaldo wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of his family. “Gio and our baby girl are finally with us. We want to thank everyone for all the kind words and gestures. Your support means so much and we have all felt the love and respect you have for our family.”
Ever since Ronaldo announced the loss of his newborn son, the footballing world has offered its condolences to the Manchester United player.
When Manchester United took on Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday, the crowd took part in a round of applause in the seventh minute of the game in support of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner and his family. Ronaldo’s shirt number at United is seven.
A United shirt bearing Ronaldo’s name and number was held out by visiting supporters, while both groups of players entered the pitch wearing black armbands.
“Now is the time to be grateful for the life we have just welcomed into this world,” Ronaldo said on his Instagram post.
Ronaldo’s first child with Rodríguez, Alana Martina, was born in November 2017. He is also father to fraternal twins Eva and Mateo, whom he welcomed via surrogate in June 2017, as well as son Cristiano Jr, 11. , which he shares with a former partner who has never been publicly named.
