The new season of Georgina’s docuseries, “I Am Georgina” is set to release on March 24th. Hence, the latter recently spoke about the series to the Spanish publication El Español, who had viewed the first episode of the documentary.

“Every time I went to the gynecologist’s at night I had nightmares because I was worried about what position they would be in, what the delivery would be like, if it would be a cesarean section,” she said.

While speaking to the Spanish publication, she also revealed the most shocking news that no one had ever known about. “I was very afraid at each ultrasound, I felt very tense because I’d had three previous miscarriages, and I came home in pieces. I was very afraid at each ultrasound, I felt very tense because I’d had three previous miscarriages and I came home in pieces,” she added.

Cristiano Ronaldo broke the tough news

In the first episode of the docuseries, Georgina also revealed how she kept the death of her twin boy a secret from the other kids. Rather, she told them he would be born a little later. 

“Bella was born strong and healthy but a piece of my heart shattered. “You ask yourself how you’re going to carry on. I wasn’t prepared to accept or recognize what had happened to me and I wasn’t ready to tell my children about it.

“As I still had a belly, I told them that Angel was still going to wait a bit to be born. “Until Cris told them that Angel was in Heaven. That was a dose of reality.”

“Every time I look at Bella I ask myself, ‘Would Angel be like that?’ “The truth is I feel I am not ready to think about it, as if I still haven’t accepted it. “I always say to my children, ‘Your little brother is in the sky, he doesn’t want to walk, he wants to fly. Every time you look at the sky, think of him.'”

Even today, Georgina admitted she hadn’t come to terms with her tragic loss. However, she revealed she was grateful for his partner’s support during these tough times. “Cris really encouraged me to continue with my agenda. He said: ‘Gio, get on with your life, it’ll do you good.’ “My priority right now is my family and my children. I’m so happy and thankful.”
