Rodriguez and Ronaldo lost their son ‘Angel’ at birth in April 2022. The couple was expecting twins when Rodriguez went into the delivery room. However, they faced one of the most tragic moments of their lives when they were informed that they lost their son.
It was Cristiano who told his children that Angel had gone to heaven because Georgina couldn’t.

A video has surfaced which is apparently of the time when Ronaldo informs his kids about Angel’s death. Rodriguez says in an interview, “I was not ready to tell my kids. So, because I still had a little belly I told them that Angel was inside mommy’s tummy and that he decided not to be born yet.”
Further, she explained how Ronaldo gave his kids the harsh truth. She said, “Until Cris said ‘look Angel is in heaven’ and then it was like a reality fix.”
Ronaldo and Georgina announced in October 2021 that they were expecting twins. However, in April 2022, they announced that their son had passed away but their daughter was born healthy. Ronaldo was recently seen posing with his daughter, Bella Esmeralda.

In his interview with Piers Morgan, where Ronaldo talked a lot about Manchester United, he also said a lot in a personal capacity. He talked about his situation after his son’s death. It was a tragic moment.
Ronaldo said: “Piers, probably [it was] 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.”
“It was probably the worst moment in my life. It was very, very difficult.”

He said that it was difficult to believe it happened. He used to ask why something like this happened to him and Georgina but there are no answers.
When asked about how he managed to grieve about losing a son but also celebrate the birth of a daughter: “It’s crazy.
“I tried to explain sometimes to my family and even my close friends. I say, I never felt so happy and sad in the same moment. I never felt it. It is hard to explain.”
“So difficult. It’s, you don’t know if you cry or you don’t know if you smile. Because it’s something where you don’t know how to react. You don’t know what to do, to be honest.”
During this interview, Ronaldo slammed Manchester United and manager Erik ten Hag. The club and the player mutually terminated their contract after it. As of now, Ronaldo plays his club soccer for Saudi Pro League side Al-Nassr.
