FORMER Roma star Francesco Totti revealed his marriage to Ilary Blasi nearly ended after the television presenter bought a hairless cat.

Totti, who married the 38-year-old in 2005, was left unimpressed with his wife after she made the decision to bring the pet home.

Ilary and Francesco began dating in 2003 and were married in 2005 at the Basilica of Santa Maria in Ara Coeli - a famous 12th Century church just a mile away from the Colosseum.

Totti told former team-mate Christian Vieri on Instagram Live: "I was furious with my wife, she bought a hairless cat and called it Donna Paola.

"It's boiling.

"At night, it insists on sleeping inside our bed, next to our legs.

"She's a very affectionate cat, but almost caused us to break up.

"Ilary wanted a cat at all costs and I was adamant we shouldn't.

"One day, she brought it home, because ultimately she makes all the decisions in this family.

"We didn't speak for days, but in the end, I fell in love with the cat too."

The 43-year-old also won 58 caps for his country which included a World Cup winners medal in 2006 after their win over France.
