An Emotional Marquise Goodwin Reveals That He Played Game Hours After Losing Baby

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin took to Instagram tonight to announce the tragic news that his wife Morgan lost the couple’s baby boy early Sunday morning due to complications in her pregnancy.

In the post, Goodwin thanked fans and those who wished him well throughout his wife’s pregnancy.

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. 💙👣

Goodwin went on to play in Sunday’s 49ers win over the Giants in which he had an 83-yard touchdown reception. After the touchdown, Goodwin was visibly emotional a as he pointed at the sky while running into the end zone then crouched on the ground as his teammates surrounded him support.

Later in the game, Goodwin contributed to another touchdown when he helped Garrett Celek score by delivering a huge block.

While Goodwin played a vital part in the 49ers first win of the season, he skipped out of the team’s celebration to be with his family after the game.

Our prayers go out to Goodwin and his family, we can’t imagine the pain he must have gone through during today’s game.
