Opera star Andrea Bocelli has praised his mother for rejecting the advice of doctors to abort him.

The blind singer, who was diagnosed with congenital glaucoma as a baby, has revealed his mother Edi was warned he would be born with some disability.

He interrupted a show to recount a ‘little story’ of how a pregnant woman was admitted to hospital with appendicitis.

After being treated, the doctors suggested the woman should consider an abortion, the Italian singer revealed to his audience.

They had told her it was the ‘best solution’.

‘But the young brave wife decided not to abort, and the child was born,’ he said. ‘That woman was my mother, and I was the child.’

He added: ‘Maybe I’m partisan, but I can say that it was the right choice.’

Bocelli, 51, does not explain why doctors recommended an abortion at a time when it was still illegal in Italy. The present law dates from 1978.
