In a heartfelt statement after his passing, the couple said it was ‘the greatest pain that any parents can feel’
In a preview of the new season which was shown to journalists at a Spanish TV and radio film festival, Ms Rodriguez said that day, which also saw her twin daughter born healthy, was a conflicting moment.
‘Life has gifted me so much in such a short space of time,’ she said.
‘This year I’ve experienced the best and the worst moment of my life in an instant.
‘A big piece of my heart shattered and I asked myself how I could carry on.
‘I had the answer nearer than I thought. I looked into the eyes of my children and there I saw the only way of doing it, being all together.’

In a heart-wrenching statement the couple 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.’

Ms Rodriguez called her surviving girl Bella Esmeralda her ‘small great blessing’ in an emotional social media post showing her sleeping with a dummy in her mouth when she was nearly four months old.
Late last month she posted another photo of her little girl clutching her thumb alongside the touching message: ‘In skin, soul and heart.’
A few days earlier the model was pictured making a surprise visit to the holy site of Fatima in Portugal in a visit which is also due to feature in the second series of ‘I Am Georgina.’
Alvaro Diaz, confirming Netflix had jumped at the chance of putting her back in front of its cameras, said: ‘We didn’t have any doubt about commissioning a second series after seeing the first, because it’s difficult to find someone who opens the doors to their life wide-open like Georgina does.’
He added during a presentation of Netflix Spain’s up-and-coming shows to journalists at FestTVal, the main Spanish annual television and radio festival in the Basque city of Victoria-Gasteiz: ‘Georgina and her loved ones have experienced something very complicated and fans will see that she has dealt with it with naturalness and generosity.
‘The new series will feature moments of the most absolute sadness and the heart-wrenching loss Georgina suffered is something that can happen to someone who has everything, like her, as well as someone who has nothing.

‘But we are also going to laugh and enjoy a lot with the new season, just like we did last time round.’
The first series of ‘I Am Georgina’ premiered in 190 countries around the world on January 27 – Georgina’s 28th birthday – and became an instant top ten hit in many.
In the first season Ronaldo told the cameras he was ‘1000 per cent certain’ he would end up tying the knot with Ms Rodriguez, who he met while she was working in a shop earning £10-an-hour.
Ms Rodriguez revealed in season one she went from taking public transport to get to the Gucci store where she met Cristiano in 2016 to being ferried around in his fleet of high-powered sports cars.
It is not yet clear if the pre-season uncertainty surrounding the striker’s future at Man United will feature at all in the second series, set to be called ‘I Am Georgina 2’.
The 37-year-old, who is missing out on Champions League football, will now remain at Old Trafford until at least January following the closure of the transfer window.
