Cristiano Ronaldo is currently facing a tough time in Saudi Arabia as he tries to settle down with his family for the first time outside Europe. It has been over four months since Ronaldo signed for the Saudi Pro League side Al-Nassr on a contract worth over $200 million a year. His life, however, on and off the field has not been that great.
Recently, something terrible has been trending on the internet. People are speculating if Ronaldo’s daughter died. No official source has confirmed any such news. People’s speculations have just gone a bit overboard.

There are two things that could have led people to think of something like this. Firstly, it could have happened that they confused Ronaldo’s son with his daughter. His son passed away at birth last year. Another recent news that could lead people to speculate something like this is the fact that Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodriguez were spotted in a Saudi Arabian hospital allegedly for their daughter’s appendix surgery.
Let’s look into the details of both of these matters.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s son passed away at birth in April 2022
Ronaldo and Rodriguez announced in October 2021 that they were expecting twins. However, tragedy struck them in April 2022. Ronaldo and Rodriguez released a statement together where they informed the world that they gave birth to a healthy baby daughter but their son had tragically passed away at birth.
In his interview with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo opened up about it in a very emotional manner. He said: “Piers, probably the worst moment that I passed through my life, since my father died. You know, when you have a kid you expect that everything will be normal, and you have that problem, it’s… it’s hard, you know, as human being that I am.

“Georgina, we had quite difficult moments because we don’t understand why it happened to us. It was difficult to be honest, it was very, very difficult to understand what was going on in that in that period of our life. As you know, the football carries on there, so fast, many competitions, the football doesn’t stop. We had many, many competitions.
“And passing through in that moment was probably the most difficult moment that I had in my life.”
At the time, Ronaldo was a Manchester United player. He was shown great support from rival fans including Liverpool and Arsenal. The Portuguese soccer icon thanked those fans in the same interview.

Recently, Ronaldo and Rodriguez’s were spotted at a Saudi Arabian hospital. It was reported that the couple was there for their daughter. She was supposed to have an appendix surgery. However, it was not confirmed which daughter it was.
On the other hand, Bella Esmeralda, Ronaldo’s daughter that was born in April 2022, faced a few complications early in her life. She suffered from bronchitis and Ronaldo had to miss preseason with United to be with his daughter. In the interview with Morgan, he opened up about this issue as well.

He said, “I spoke with the directive and president of Manchester United. They kind of did not believe that there was something going wrong, which made me feel bad. They believed, but in the same way, I’m never going to change the health of my family for football [soccer]. Never. Now, or ten years ago or forward.”
Cristiano Ronaldo explained how his family is the most important for him and how United’s board angered him with such treatment. He would always keep his family over soccer.
