El Diego already has two daughters from his first marriage to Claudia Villafane with Dalma and Gianna Maradona, the former of which is now married to Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.

Sergio and Gianna have a three year old – 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.
