Cristiano Ronaldo Explains How the Death of His Son Broke Him

The world’s most famous soccer player, Cristiano Ronaldo, has recounted how the death of his son broke his heart.

Cristiano’s son passed away during delivery in April. In the interview, he described the experience as the worst experience he’s gone through since his father’s passing in 2005.

In an interview with Piers Morgan this week, CR7 was frank about what it felt like to be overtaken with happiness and heartbreak after giving birth to his daughter and grieving the death of his son at the same time.

“It is probably the worst moment that has passed through my life since my father died,” Ronaldo said.

“When you have a kid, you expect that everything will be normal, and when you have that problem, it’s hard. As human beings, me and Georgina 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’s going on in that period of our life.”

“I try to explain sometimes to my family and close friends, they say, ‘I never felt to be happy and sad in the same moment”.

“It’s hard to explain so difficult. You don’t know if you cry, you don’t know if you smile, Because it’s something you don’t know how to react. You don’t know what to do to be honest.” Cristiano added.

After his son passed away, Ronaldo missed one match for Manchester United before making a quick comeback.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Georgina Rodriquez started dating in 2016 after meeting in a Gucci store. The duo are also parents to 4-year-old Alana.

Additionally, the world-famous athlete is a father to son Cristiano Jr., 11, and twins Mateo and Eva, 4, via surrogacy.
