KHQ.COM - If you witnessed Marquise Goodwin's 83-yard touchdown Sunday during the 49ers vs. Giants game, you may not have understood his emotional celebration in the end zone. It was his first touchdown of the season which helped the 49ers clinch their first win of the season, but that's not why Goodwin fell to his knees, taking some time to collect himself.

After the game, Goodwin shared a heartbreaking photo of his infant son's hand clasping his finger and made the heartbreaking announced that just hours before the game, his son, born prematurely, had passed away.

He posted the photo saying, "I just wanna thank those who’ve genuinely prayed for my wife & 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."
