The Portuguese woman has made the incredible confession in her candid autobiography ‘Mother Courage’ which has been released in Portugal today.

Aveiro reveals she opted for a home recipe involving after a doctor refused to intervene to terminate the pregnancy.

"I wanted to abort but the doctor didn't support my decision,” she admits in the book.

She went on to explain she drank warm ale and "ran till she dropped" without achieving her aim.

While her son was absent from the official launch of the book with work commitments cited as the reason, Aveiro says that the football star already knew of the attempted abortion and the pair are able to light-heartedly reflect on the past.

"He told me when he found out, 'Look mum, you wanted to abort and now I'm the one who's pulling the purse-strings in the house."
