He and his partner, Georgina Rodriguez, had confirmed the heartbreaking news on Monday. They described their newborn son as an “angel” while adding that the tragic infant’s twin sister was giving them “strength” through the emotional pain.

Ronaldo, 37, was given compassionate leave to miss United’s match against Liverpool on Tuesday night, which ended in a 4-0 defeat. Rivalries were put aside when both fans united in the 7th minute – in reference to Ronaldo’s shirt number – for a minute’s applause in support of the star. Liverpool fans also sang their anthem You’ll Walk Alone.

In a statement before the game at Anfield, the club said: “Family is more important than everything and Ronaldo is supporting his loved ones at this immensely difficult time.”

The Portuguese ace and model Georgina, 28, had revealed their loss on social media.

They said: “It is with our deepest sadness that we announce the passing of our baby boy. It’s the greatest pain any parent can feel. Our baby boy, you are our angel.”
