Diego Maradona and his girlfriend, Veronica Ojeda, have revealed that they are expecting their first child together. She told Ciudad.com that rumours of her pregnancy are in fact true.
The 34-year-old girlfriend of one of the greatest footballers of all time told the Argentinian gossip site: "I'm four months pregnant".
Ojeda declined to go into more detail on the pregnancy while asking for some privacy for the golden couple of Argentine football on this special occasion. El Diego already has two daughters from his first marriage to Claudia Villafane, Dalma and Giannina Maradona, the latter of which is now married to Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.
Sergio and Giannina have a three-year-old son – Benjamin – who, even at such a young age, big things are expected of in the world of football due to his lineage.
Maradona is also the father of Diego Sinagra, who currently plays for Argentine side El Porvenir in the fourth tier of Argentine football.
Maradona’s last foray into football was as manager of Dubai club Al Wasl in the United Arab Emirates. He was sacked as the coach of the club following a run of poor results in July 2012.
