On Sunday, during the game between the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants, Marquise Goodwin had an emotional moment in the end-zone.

Goodwin had just scored a go-ahead 83-yard touchdown and blew a kiss to the sky as he ran for the end zone. Once he got there, he fell to first one knee and then both knees and put his head in his hands as he prayed.

Goodwin later took to social media to explain the whirlwind of emotions that he was experiencing that day, because he and his wife had just lost their son in a premature birth.

“I just wanna thank those who’ve genuinely prayed for @morganakamomo & myself through out this pregnancy,” Goodwin wrote. “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 wrote on Instagram about their loss: “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.”

We are sending our thoughts and our love to the Goodwin family as they struggle through this loss.
