In the second quarter of the 49ers’ first win of the season, a 31-21 victory over the Giants, Olympian-turned-wide-receiver Marquise Goodwin hauled in an 83-yard touchdown and immediately dropped to his knees in prayer.

Goodwin was emotional, and his teammates surrounded him as he knelt.

After the game, Goodwin revealed on Instagram that he and his wife, Morgan, had lost their first child in the early morning on Sunday. He said that they “lost our baby boy due to some complications, and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4am.”

Morgan Goodwin had announced her pregnancy on her private Instagram in September, hashtagging it “#hellosecondtrimester.” She also posted a photo of the baby’s hand on her Instagram on Sunday, captioning it in part:

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. I️ appreciate everyone who kept us in their prayers and constantly checked in on us.

Goodwin, understandably, did not stick around for media availability after the game and left to be with his family.
