Mark Wright ''cried his eyes out'' when his ex-fiancee Lauren Goodger revealed she aborted his baby at the age of 20
Mark Wright "cried his eyes out" when his ex-fiancee Lauren Goodger revealed she aborted his baby.
The 'Only Way Is Essex' star was stunned when his 25-year-old former flame - who he dated on and off for 10 years - confessed she and Mark had decided not to go ahead with a pregnancy five years ago, because for him it was always a private matter.
He said: "I never thought she'd bring that up. I don't cry at the fact we're no longer together any more but I cried my eyes out at that interview.
"My friends don't leave in me in the house on my own because I'm on a breaking edge over what happened."
Although Lauren - who got pregnant when she was 20 - suggested she decided to have a termination because Mark wasn't emotionally ready to be a father, the 24-year-old hunk is adamant it was a joint decision made by the pair.
In an interview with OK! magazine, he explained: "I can't believe she chose to make public something so sad and personal. It was such an upsetting time for us. I hate the idea of abortions and that's why it only happened once in 10 years because I was more than careful.
"It was a mistake and it was a decision we both made, we were young. I have to stress it was 100 per cent a joint decision.
"I didn't feel like it was the right or wrong decision, it was just very emotional. It was very early days, within a few weeks. It really affected me. That could have been my little David Beckham and you never know, I might never get that chance to have that again."
