Ronaldo Speaks For First Time About Death Of Newborn Son: ‘Hardest Moment Of My Life’

Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo has spoken publicly for the first time about the loss of his newborn son in April. In an interview, the famous athlete spoke about the incomparable grief as well as the children’s reactions.

We remind you that Ronaldo and his girlfriend Georgina were expecting twins but lost one of the newborn babies during childbirth on April 18, 2022. Their daughter, Bella Esmeralda, is now 10 months old and beautiful.

In an interview with Piers Morgan, the 37-year-old athlete admitted that this was the most difficult moment in his life. “It was probably the most terrifying moment I’ve ever been through in my life. It was very difficult for Georgina and I because we didn’t understand why this had to happen to us…

To be honest, it was very difficult, it was difficult to understand what’s going on. As you know, football goes on, we had a lot of games at the time and I had to deal with both the loss and my job. To be with my family. And going through that was the hardest time for me and my family, especially for Gio (Georgina),” he said.

Cristiano shared how difficult it is to mourn the loss of a son while at the same time rejoicing in the birth and life of a newborn daughter.

“Sometimes I try to explain to friends and family that it’s hard to be happy and sad at the same time. It’s hard to explain. You don’t know whether to cry or laugh. You don’t know how to react and what to do,” he added.

Ronaldo revealed the late baby’s name was Angel and spoke about the moments they finally had to tell their other children what had happened to their little brother. “When Gio came home, the kids started asking, ‘Where’s the other baby, where’s the other baby?'” admitted Ronaldo through tears.

“The kids understand, we had a few conversations and they said, ‘Dad, I did this for Angel,’ and they pointed to the sky. And as weird as it is, yeah, I like that because it’s part of our life. I’m not going to lie to my kids, I always try to tell them the truth, which is a difficult process, but it will teach them to be human,” he added.
