Manchester United star, Cristiano Ronaldo has opened up about the trauma of losing his newborn son, describing it as “the most difficult moment” of his life.

The 37-year-old talked about more personal experiences in the most recent segment of his interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV after harshly criticizing Manchester United in earlier segments.

Ronaldo’s girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez gave birth to twins earlier this year but while his daughter Bella survived, Angel tragically died.

And the Portuguese said he cannot understand why it happened to his family.

Ronaldo said on Piers Morgan Uncensored: ‘Probably the worst moments that I passed through my life, since my father died, when you have a kid that you expect that will be normal, and you have that problem, it’s… it’s hard, you know, as a human being.

‘Georgina, we had quite difficult moments because we don’t understand why it happened to us. It was difficult to be honest, was very, very difficult to understand what’s going on, in that period of our life.

‘As you know, football carries on, so fast, many competitions, football doesn’t stop. We had many, many competitions. And that moment was probably the most difficult moment that I have had in my life. Me and my family, especially Gio, that was tough.’


Ronaldo admitted he had conflicted emotions with only one of the twins surviving.

He added: ‘It’s crazy. I tried to explain sometimes to my family and even my close friends. I say, I never felt to be and sad in the same moment. I never felt it. It is hard to explain.

‘So difficult. You if you cry or you if you smile. Because it’s something that… you don’t know how to react. You don’t know what to do, to be honest.’

The former Real Madrid forward revealed that his other children asked why they only came home from the hospital with one baby.

‘The other ones in the beginning, around the table, the kids start to say, ‘Mom, where is the other baby’, and after one week I said, ‘Let’s be up front and let’s be honest with the kids, let’s say that, Angel – which is his name – he’s gone to heaven’.

‘The kids understand, we had shouts around the table and they say, ‘ I did this for Angel’, and they point to the sky. Which I like the most because he’s part of their lives. I am not going to lie to my kids, I say the truth, which was a difficult process.’
