The NFL football player took to Instagram to express the personal heartbreak that preceded his emotional end zone moment.

Marquise Goodwin came through with a big play after a heartbreaking moment.

The San Francisco 49ers player caught an 83-yard touchdown pass in the team's first win of the season on Sunday, only to collapse in the end zone and break down.

Following the game, the 26-year-old NFL receiver took to Instagram to share with fans that he and his wife, Morgan Goodwin-Snow, lost a child, shortly after being born prematurely, due to complications with the birth.

"I just wanna thank those who’ve genuinely prayed for @morganakamomo & myself through out this pregnancy," Goodwin tweeted, breaking the devastating news. "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," he added. "The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable. Please Pray for the Goodwin family."

The couple had announced they were expecting in September, with Goodwin writing, "Blessing from above!!!"

Our thoughts go out to the Goodwin family during this heartbreaking time.
