“The other ones in the beginning, around the table, the kids start to say ‘Mum where is the other baby….’ …and after one week I say let’s be upfront and let’s be honest with the kids, let’s say that, Angel, which is his name, he goes to Heaven.”
“Piers, probably the worst moment that I passed through my life since my father died” he added.

“I tried to explain sometimes to my family and even my close friends, I say I never felt so happy and sad in the same moment. I never felt it. It is hard to explain.”
“So difficult. It’s, you don’t know if you cry or you don’t know if you smile.” he said.
Ronaldo still keeps the ashes of Angel
