Ronaldo thanked a team of doctors and nurses who tried their best to save his little son and helping his partner through childbirth.
The couple was expecting twins; a boy and a girl.
He, however, confirmed that his baby daughter was healthy and in good form.
“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 couple said.
Reacting to the same, Manchester United sent a condolence message saying;
“Your pain is our pain. Sending love and strength to you and the family at this time.”
Rodriguez met Ronaldo in 2016, when she was working at a Gucci store in Madrid.
At the time, Ronaldo was playing for Real Madrid.
“The first meeting with Ronaldo was at Gucci where I worked as a sales assistant. Days later we saw each other again at another brand’s event and it was then we could talk in a relaxed atmosphere, outside of my work environment
“It was love at first sight for both,” she said in a previous interview.
