Georgina Rodriguez make first red carpet appearance since son’s tragic death at Cannes

The partner of Cristiano Ronaldo put on a brave face as she took to the red carpet for the Elvis premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday

Georgina Rodriquez made her first red carpet appearance a month after she tragically lost her baby son.

The partner of Cristiano Ronaldo put on a brave face as she took to the red carpet for the Elvis premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday.

The Manchester United superstar and the Argentine-Spanish model, who he met in 2016, welcomed Bella Esmeralda into the world on April 18, hours after they tragically lost their newborn son, Bella's twin brother.

The WAG, 28, looked incredible in a plunging silver gown which came complete with a thigh-high slit.

Georgina posed for photos at the screening, which charters the Rock and Roll star's rise to fame in the 1950s.

Georgina and Ronaldo's tragic loss was revealed in a message from the couple that appeared on Manchester United and Portugal forward Ronaldo’s social media accounts.

It read: “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.”

Ronaldo had announced in a social media post last October that he and Rodriguez were expecting twins.

In a heart-warming post on Instagram earlier this month, Rodriguez announced her name by posting three adorable photos and writing: "Bella Esmeralda," alongside a green heart emoji and her birthdate.

Ronaldo had shared a snap of his newborn daughter and fifth child, captioning the black-and-white image with: "Forever Love..." along with a heart and prayer emoji.

The 37-year-old and his partner had brought Bella to their luxury Cheshire house after her birth and announced in a separate post: "Home sweet home.

"Gio and our baby girl are finally together with us. We want to thank everyone for all the kind words and gestures. Your support is very important and we all felt the love and respect that you have for our family. Now it's time to be grateful for the life that we've just welcomed into this world."
