• Cristiano Ronaldo and Georgina Rodriguez mourn
  • They had twins, but their newborn son has died
  • Now the Ronaldo family is speaking out

Cristiano Ronaldo, 37, and his partner Georgina Rodriguez, 28, mourn their son. Georgina was expecting twins, but only their baby girl survived. Of course, this terrible news also shocked the world.

On Tuesday, football fans paid their respects. Around 50,000 spectators from Liverpool FC and Manchester United applauded for a minute and sang "You'll Never Walk Alone." They wanted to express solidarity with Ronaldo during this difficult time.

Cristiano Ronaldo's sisters are deeply touched 

Cristiano Ronaldo's family thanks the fans for the overwhelming sympathy. "Thank you for this Liverpool. We will never forget what you did today," writes Elma Aveiro, the sister of Ronaldo.

"Way beyond football." Cristiano's older sister Katia Aveiro is so touched. It was also she who wrote moving words on Instagram shortly after the sad news about her nephew:

"My heart is with you over there," wrote Katia, adding: "Our little angel is already on father's lap. And our little girl, who is firm, strong, and healthy, will continue to teach us that love is all that matters."

The condolences bring comfort to Ronaldo's family

At this particularly difficult time, it may be a small consolation for Cristiano, Georgina and their family to see they are not alone and that fans are thinking of them.

Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp is also very touched by what happened in the stadium. "That is exactly how football should be with all rivalry aside at this moment," he said after the game, which he won with his team.

Cristiano Ronaldo himself was not on the pitch after the tragic event, but he was certainly aware of the atmosphere in the stadium. Shortly after Ronaldo announced his son's passing, his club Manchester United reached out in the comments on Instagram: "Your pain is our pain. Sending love and strength to you and the family at this time."

Cristiano and Georgina have apparently withdrawn for the time being and asked for privacy in their statement: "We are all devastated at this loss and we kindly ask for privacy at this very difficult time. Our boy, you are our angel. We will always love you."
