Mother of Real Madrid footballer and
Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed in her new autobiography that she attempted to abort the world best footballer while she was pregnant.
Dolores Aveiro said in the book, Mãe Coragem (which translates to ‘Mother Courage’), that doctors disagreed with her decision to terminate her pregnancy and refused to carry out the procedure.
She apparently turned to hard exercise and home remedies including drinking warm beer and “running until she dropped” in desperation.
Speaking at the launch of the autobiography in Lisbon on Thursday, she said that Ronaldo already knew about his past and even joked about it.
