Georgina is believed to have given birth in the UK, with her sister and boyfriend, Carlos Garcia, jetting over to help the new mum.

But it is thought that the couple organised a BBQ at their home in Manchester before the tragedy, with Ivana attending. 

Spanish sports journalist Edu Aguirre, a friend of the striker whose partner Julia Salmean is close to Georgina, was also pictured at the small gathering of family and friends.

Announcing the tragic news ​​Ronaldo said: "It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that our baby boy has passed away.

"It is the greatest pain that any parents can feel. Only the birth of our baby girl gives us the strength to live this moment with some hope and happiness.

"We would like to thank the doctors and nurses for all their expert care and support.

"We are all devastated at this loss and we kindly ask for privacy at this very difficult time.

"Our baby boy, you are our angel. We will always love you."

Cristiano’s sister Katia Aveiro penned an emotional letter to her brother after the announcement, referring to their dad, Dinis, who died in 2005. 

He passed away from liver failure aged 52 , when Cristiano was only 20. 

Katia said: “I love you and my heart is with you over there. May God take care of you and strengthen your path more and more.

“Our angel is already on father’s lap. And our little girl is there firm and strong and full of health and is going to show us with every day that only love matters.”

Our baby boy, you are our angel. We will always love you.

The footballing ace scored three goals against Norwich at Old Trafford on Saturday and his side face Liverpool away on Tuesday.

Ronaldo is not expected to feature in the game following his family tragedy.

Cristiano’s other sister Elma, who is based in Madeira, told Correio da Manha: “Life has these things. It’s important everything else is okay.”

Before Georgina fell pregnant, Ronaldo was already a dad of four, with three of his children born to two surrogate mothers.

In October, he and Georgina shared a cute snap of themselves holding their baby scans, captioned: "Delighted to announce we are expecting twins.

"Our hearts are full of love – we can’t wait to meet you."

Ronaldo is a dad to Cristiano Jr, 11, twins Eva and Mateo, four, and three-year-old Alana Martina, who Georgina gave birth to.
