24 year old striker, Mario Balotelli is expecting his first child from ex-girlfriend, Rafaella.
Speaking to Italian website Sport Mediaset, she said: ‘I called the day before the game against Germany and I said, I’m expecting a baby, it’s your baby.
‘After a pause he said ‘You gave me the best news of the world.”
Rafaella now claims that a delighted Mario, 21, is eager to commit to her and rebuild their failed relationship.
She said that he never stopped loving her and he always wanted to have a son with her and even get married.
She insists that she does not need money and never intended to trap a rich footballer, however, her offspring will bring plenty of pride to Balotelli, who stormed off the pitch after last night’s defeat.
It’s still important that a lot of confirmations take place…
