Betrayal: Natasha Giggs, 28, has revealed that she had an abortion after falling pregnant to Ryan Giggs - a few weeks before her wedding to his brother Rhodri
The sister-in-law of Ryan Giggs - with whom the Manchester United player had an eight-year affair - has revealed that she aborted his baby weeks before marrying his brother Rhodri.
Natasha Giggs was given £500 by the cheating footballer towards the cost of the abortion.
She said: 'Ryan told me straight off, ''You know there's only one option - a termination. We can't ruin everybody's life.
'I was due to fly out to Las Vegas to marry Rhodri within weeks and I knew I couldn't possibly marry him while I was pregnant with his brother's baby.
The 28-year-old told the News Of The World: 'Going through with the termination was horrendous. Even though I was with Rhodri and loved him, I had feelings for Ryan.'
She fell pregnant after she slept with the Premiership footballer at a friend's house following a night out in Manchester to celebrate Giggs scoring two penalties against Tottenham Hotspurs last April.

They had carried out their affair, which began in 2003, the same year Giggs married wife Stacey Cooke, 32, in a string of hotels and worked it around the Premiership fixtures list.
The risky behaviour meant the pair were almost caught by their spouses and family and friends became suspicious about the nature of their relationship.
Natasha Giggs, a mother of two, had the termination at a clinic in Stockport on June 3.
Two weeks later she married Rhodri in Las Vegas. One of the guests was actor Will Mellor - also revealed to have had a one-night stand with the bride 11 years ago.
