Last evening, Cristiano Ronaldo announced the tragic death of his baby boy after his long-time girlfriend gave birth to a twin son and daughter. After the unfortunate incident, Manchester United will be traveling to Anfield on Tuesday. And the Liverpool fans have decided to stage a minute’s applause in support of Cristiano Ronaldo and his partner Georgiana during a tough time for their family. 

Ronaldo issued a joint statement with his partner Georgiana Rodriguez on Instagram, informing the fans about the tragic loss. The statement described the unfortunate loss to be the greatest pain that any parent can ever feel.

Fans over the social media platforms have sent their love and support to the Portuguese national and his family, who have suffered a major loss. While the football world unitedly prays for Ronaldo’s loss, Liverpool fans have planned to set rivalries aside during the seventh minute of tonight’s Premiere league game and pay tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo and his family with a minute’s applause. 

Ronaldo Announces The Passing Of His Baby Boy

Cristiano was saddened to announce on Instagram that his newborn son passed away yesterday evening. CR7 added that the birth of their baby girl gave him the strength to get through this unfortunate moment with some hope and happiness. He also expressed his gratitude to the doctors and nurses for their care and support. Ronaldo urged his fans to give some privacy to their grieving family with the devastating loss. 

Ronaldo revealed in October that the couple was expecting twins on Instagram. He shared a picture of him and Georgiana with the sonographic images of their babies. In November, the duo confirmed that they had a boy and a girl coming into their family in a gender-reveal video with their other kids. 

The Argentinian Georgiana and Cristiano met in 2016 when Ronaldo was at Real Madrid, and she used to work as an assistant in a Gucci Shop. Georgiana described Cristiano as the best dad at work a few weeks ago. She wrote on Instagram, “Every day by your side is happy and special. We Love you indefinitely. Thank you so much to the best dad in the world.”

The loss is a big one to take for Ronaldo and his family. He is likely to miss tonight’s game against Liverpool FC in Anfield. Tonight’s encounter will be a must-win for both Liverpool and the Red Devils. If Liverpool wins tonight, they will replace Manchester City as the Premier League leader.

Meanwhile, Red Devils will be closer to breaking into the top-four and securing a Champions League spot if Manchester wins. The United will certainly miss Ronaldo, who scored a hattrick against Norwich City in their last match. The Red Devils could start with Marcus Rashford at Anfield’s front following Cristiano’s absence and Edinson Cavani’s injury.
