Despite losing his son earlier in the day, Marquise Goodwin managed to score a touchdown helping his team to its first victory of the season. After beating Giants Janoris Jenkins and securing the catch, Goodwin blew a kiss to the sky before stepping into the end zone.

Goodwin said on his Instagram page that his wife, Morgan Goodwin-Snow, lost their baby boy due to complications during pregnancy early Sunday morning.

The sporting world witnessed the San Francisco 49ers winning their first game of the season on Sunday.

ESPN reported that Goodwin left the Niners' locker room as soon as the game ended Sunday to return to his family.

Both Goodwin and Goodwin-Snow are career athletes; they were stars on the track team at the University of Texas at Austin. "#IGotChuBaby #MyHubby #ThankYouSoMuchBaby #ILoveYou".

"Unfortunately we lost our baby boy due to some complications, and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4am", he wrote to caption a photo of his finger and his baby boy's tiny hand. In September, the fifth-year National Football League veteran shared a photo of him and his wife kissing while holding an ultrasound image. "He had a wonderful game today".

I appreciate everyone who kept us in their prayers and constantly checked in on us. "But that's okay because we won't stop fighting and we won't give up on what God has in store for us".
