On April 18, Cristiano Ronaldo and his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, gave birth to a baby girl. The couple named their newborn Bella Esmeralda. However, the joy of the birth of their baby was cut short when Bella’s twin brother died during childbirth.
Georgina later shared a picture of Bella on her Instagram, where Bella was sleeping peacefully. However, soon after her birth, Bella had a bout of bronchitis which forced Ronaldo to miss Manchester United’s pre-season training. Ronaldo himself revealed that he had spent a week in the hospital due to his infant daughter’s sickness, which the club’s bosses allegedly failed to believe. The former United player was later benched by coach Erik ten Hag for missing the pre-season training.
Who is Bella Esmeralda’s twin brother?
Cristiano Ronaldo and Georgina Rodriguez’s happiness due to the birth of Bella was short-lived as their twin son, Bella’s brother died during childbirth. Ronaldo later said, “It is probably the worst moment that has passed through my life since my father died.” Ronaldo and his girlfriend are parents to five children.

Out of the five, Ronaldo’s firth child, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, was born in 2010. However, due to a legal agreement, the identity of the mother cannot be revealed by the former Real Madrid star.

However, one of the twins, Bella Esmeralda, survived. The baby boy, who was named Angel by Ronaldo and Georgina, died a tragic death during childbirth. During his interview with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo revealed how tough it was to deal with Angel’s death. He added, “When you have a kid, you expect that everything will be normal, And when you have that problem, it’s hard. As human beings, I and Georgina had quite difficult moments, because we don’t understand why it happened to us.”
Despite suffering the death of his baby, Ronaldo had to fulfill his duties for his former club Manchester United. However, a beautiful moment took place just after the death of the former Juventus star’s son. During the match between Liverpool and Manchester United, the Liverpool supporters held up Ronaldo’s number jersey as a tribute to Ronaldo.
