Diego Maradona is already a grandfather, but it looks like he might be adding yet another child to his family.
According to a report by People en Español, the Argentinean all-time soccer great is going to be a father for the sixth time. Curiously, it isn't with his current girlfriend, the 24-year-old soccer player Rocío Oliva, but with his ex-girlfriend and mother of his fifth child, Verónica Ojeda.
Argentine journalist Luis Ventura, who reportedly learned the news directly from Ojeda, said the mother-to-be found out in recent days.
“I saw her very excited, but more unbalanced,” the journalist said on the show "Intrusos."
People En Español report that Ventura also said Maradona, 53, was planning to propose to Oliva, who lives with Maradona in Dubai.
Giannina Maradona, who was married to current Argentinean striker Sergio Agüero and has a son with him, told the Buenos Aires AM station, Radio La Red, that while her father did not deny the pregnancy, it was not his child.
The Mirror UK reported that Ojeda arrived in Dubai earlier this week to give Maradona the news and that she told her ex, via TV cameras, to get a blood test if he doesn't think the baby is his.
Maradona and Ojeda are parents to the ex-soccer player’s fifth child, Diego Fernando, who turns 1 on Feb. 13 and was legally recognized by Maradona as his son last March in the consulate of Argentina in Dubai.
Maradona also has two daughters with ex-wife, Claudia Villafañe, and a son and daughter from extra-marital affairs, with whom he has no relationship.
