Cristiano Ronaldo almost aborted by his mother

Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother has revealed how close she came to having an abortion when pregnant with the Portuguese superstar.

Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro said he was an “unwanted baby”, but her faith in God meant she refused to go through with the termination.

She first announced her dilemma in her 2014 autobiography - then claiming that doctors would not allow her to go through with the procedure.

She spoke candidly in 'Ronaldo', an upcoming documentary film showing the rise of her son to becoming a three-time Ballon d’Or winner.

"He is a child that I wanted to abort," she said. "God didn’t want that to happen and I was blessed because of that and God didn’t punish me.

"Sometimes Ronaldo makes fun of me and says: 'You didn’t want me to be born. But now you see that I’m here helping all of you.' And, well, sometimes we have a laugh about that."

The film portrays Ronaldo as a staunch family man, with particular focus on his relationship with his five-year-old son, Cristiano Jr.
