Marquise Goodwin scored a touchdown yesterday, helping him lead his team to victory.
Morgan Goodwin also posted on Instagram that she had to deliver her "precious baby boy early this morning due to pre-term labor".
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin impressed crowds on Sunday by scoring an 83-yard touchdown. "The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelieveable".
He was visibly emotional in the end zone, pointing to the sky and putting his hands in a prayer position while his teammates gathered around him.
ESPN reported that Goodwin left the Niners' locker room as soon as the game ended Sunday to return to his family. Goodwin has shown tremendous strength in his performance as a player, but also as a father and a husband, on Sunday. "Please Pray for the Goodwin family", Goodwin wrote.
Both Goodwin and Goodwin-Snow are career athletes; they were stars on the track team at the University of Texas at Austin.
"Despite our loss, my hubby kept grinding, scored his son a touchdown & got our first "W" of the season", she added.
Goodwin did not speak with the press after the game but revealed the tragedy in a heartbreaking Instagram post later in the day.
"I just wanna thank those who've genuinely prayed for @morganakamomo & myself through out this pregnancy".
