Sorry, Ladies, it looks like soccer stud Landon Donovan might be somebody’s “baby daddy.”
A pregnant British woman has come forward accusing Donovan of fathering of her child.
American World Cup star Landon Donovan and the rest of his team made headlines Saturday, when they were eliminated from the 2010 World Cup after being defeated by Ghana 2-1. Donovan, however, is about to become an even bigger name in his homeland ollowing the news that a British newspaper is going to publish a report that an unidentified woman claims she is carrying Donovan’s child.
The sportsman has vowed to “take responsibility” for the child, if he is proven to be the father.
“I was informed of the possibility during the World Cup, and if I need to take responsibility, then I will provide the appropriate support,” the 28-year-old athlete said in a statement Monday. “This is a private matter, and I will refrain from further comment at this time.”
Donovan, who plays for LA Galaxy, played on loan for Liverpool’s Everton in the winter of 2009, which is where the relationship with the British mother-to-be is believed to have began.
Donovan is separated from his wife, Rules of Engagement star Bianca Kajlich.
