He continued by thanking their 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," he concluded the post, signed by himself and Rodríguez.

As the couple continues to mourn the death of their newborn son, they revealed the name and birthdate of the baby's surviving twin sister last month.

"Bella Esmeralda 💚 180422," Rodríguez captioned a series of adorable photos on Instagram of the little girl sleeping.
