Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodriguez have shared the first photo of their newborn daughter just days after revealing that the baby girl's twin brother had died.

Sharing a photo of their family welcoming the new baby home, the couple wrote in an Instagram post on Thursday (21 April): "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."

The couple said it was a time to be "grateful" for the new life they had welcomed into the world, as they thanks supporters for their sympathy.

In the picture, which Ronaldo posted Thursday on Instagram, the Manchester United forward, 37, and his longtime partner, Georgina Rodriguez, 28, smile as they sit at home with their children. Ronaldo is seen holding the couple's newborn daughter in his arms.

The twins born on April 18 were the couple's fifth, and sixth child together.
