This is heartbreaking.

Marquise Goodwin, the wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers, thought he had an amazing day ahead of him — he and his wife were expecting a child.

Instead, the day turned tragic.

Goodwin, on his Instragam account, posted a gut wrenching photo that announced his son had died at birth.

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.
