Hours before 49ers baller Marquise Goodwin hit the field on Sunday, he and his wife lost their baby boy. So sad. Get the deets, plus celebrate with Musiq Soulchild and his ex-Ashley “Tiyumba” Wright on their new bundle of joy inside…
49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin and his wife Morgan Goodwin got the worst news any parent could get. Around 4AM Sunday morning, they lost their newborn baby boy. There were some complications with the pregnancy and Morgan sadly had to prematurely deliver their new bundle of joy.
After the 49ers game against the New York Giants on Sunday, the 26-year-old NFLer took to Instagram to share the devastating news about his son’s passing:
I just wanna thank those who’ve genuinely prayed for @morganakamomo & myself through out this pregnancy. Unfortunately we lost our baby boy due to some complications, and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4am. Although we are hurt, I am grateful for the experience and grateful that God blessed me with a wife as courageous and resilient as Morgan. The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable. Please Pray for the Goodwin family.
His wife Morgan also posted a touching tribute:
This whole week has taken an emotional toll on my husband and I, Struggling to keep our healthy baby safe in my womb. However, God had other plans for us. Today, I had to deliver my precious baby boy early this morning due to preterm labor. Despite our loss, my hubby kept grinding, scored his son a touchdown & got our first “W” of the season. He had a wonderful game today. I️ appreciate everyone who kept us in their prayers and constantly checked in on us. This was truly and an amazing experience and it was also a tragic experience. But that’s okay because we won’t stop fighting and we won’t give up on what God has in store for us. It’s just important for us to remember that things happen for a reason, even though we may question ourselves “why us.” Our faith is strong. I just ask that you let us mourn in peace and ask that you not try and call/blow our phone up. #RIPBabyGoodwin #PretermLabor #PregnancyLoss #StayingStrong
During the game, Marquise scored a touchdown after catching an 83-yard pass. After he made the touchdown, he fell down to his knees and thanked the man upstairs:
By the way, yesterday’s win was the first win of the year for the 49ers. They defeated the Giants, 31-21.
What a strong couple! We send our prayers and condolences to the Goodwin family.
