A woman claiming to have been Pope Francis' childhood girlfriend says she helped him become a priest by rejecting his marriage proposal.

In Buenos Aires on Thursday Amalia Damonte said she lived just four houses down from the young Jorge Bergoglio.

She says when she was 13, he told her, "If we don't get married, I'll become a priest."

Damonte say she's has high hopes for his role as pope.
