Cristiano Ronaldo has shared a touching picture of his baby daughter less than two weeks after the tragic loss of his son.
The footballer and his partner Georgina Rodriguez were expecting twins, but only their daughter survived the birth.
The Manchester United striker has now taken to Instagram to post a sweet picture of him cradling her in his arms.
The picture of Ronaldo sitting on a sofa with his baby is captioned: “Forever Love…”.
It comes just weeks after the athlete opened up about his heartache after the death of his newborn son.
“It is with our deepest sadness that we have to announce that our baby boy has passed away,” the Manchester United star said in a post on his Instagram page at the time.
“It’s the greatest pain a parent can feel.
“Only the birth of our little girl gives us the strength to live this moment with some hope and happiness.”
Ronaldo, 37, and Miss Rodriguez, 28, paid tribute to their ‘angel’ baby and said: ‘We will always love you’.
“We would like to thank the doctors and nurses for their expert care and support,” the couple said. “We are all devastated by this loss and kindly request privacy at this very difficult time.”

Ronaldo is also father to Cristiano Jr., 11, whose identity has been kept secret.
United’s top scorer is also father to twins Mateo and Eva, four, who were reportedly born via surrogate in 2017.
