Valentines bliss: Maradona a father for 4th time

maradona-cutBUENOS AIRES, Argentina, February 14 – Argentine football legend Diego Maradona has become a father for the fourth time, after his former partner gave birth to a son in a private clinic in Buenos Aires, the woman’s lawyer said on Thursday.

“Both the baby and Veronica (Ojeda, Maradona’s former partner) are in good health, they are doing very well and are accompanied by the mother’s sister and her family,” lawyer Jorge Auruccio told journalists outside the clinic.

Auruccio said that the baby, named Diego Fernando, was born at 11:57 pm local time on Wednesday (0257 GMT Thursday) and weighed 3.2 kg (7lbs).

“From the nose upwards he looks like Maradona,” the lawyer added.

Maradona, who is already a grandfather, currently lives in Dubai where he works as an ambassador for the Dubai Sports Council.

He separated from Ojeda several months ago but she still decided to name the baby after the star of Argentina’s 1986 World Cup win.

Diego Fernando is the fourth child of the former footballer, who had girls Dalma and Giannina with his ex-wife Claudia Villafane, and is also the father of anoher son, Diego Junior, who lives in Italy.

His grandson, Benjamin, is the son of his daughter Giannina and the Manchester City star Sergio “Kun” Aguero.
