Posting a pair of photos of the bereaved couple with her own son José and another young girl, she made a clear reference to their father Dinis who died of liver failure in September 2005, and the surviving girl twin.

The singer told Cristiano and Georgina in a message posted from her home in Brazil: ‘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.’

She posted a message along pictures of Georgina and Cristiano with her two children.

Dinis passed away aged just 52 after drinking himself into an early grave. Cristiano was only 20 when he died.

The Man United striker broke down in tears in an emotional interview with Piers Morgan in September 2019 when he was shown an old video of his dad.

Ronaldo’s mum Dolores Aveiro has said of her late husband: ‘He was drunk almost every day. I never really knew him well. I would have liked him to have been around more.

‘Although he never mistreated his children, I became his victim.’

Beneath the couple’s shared post, Piers wrote: ‘Heartbreaking news. My deepest condolences to you and all your family. [crying emoji]’

Meanwhile, Ronaldo’s team Manchester United penned: ‘Your pain is our pain. Sending love and strength to you and the family at this time, @Cristiano ❤️.’

The couple confirmed her pregnancy on social media in November, revealing she had fallen pregnant without a surrogate and was expecting a boy and a girl. 

Ronaldo, who scored a hattrick for his club Manchester United over the weekend, confirmed his baby daughter is healthy. 

He wrote: ‘It is with great sadness that we have to announce our baby boy has passed away. It is the greatest pain that any parent can feel. 

‘Only the birth of our baby girl gives us strength to live this 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.’
