Former Manchester City Mario Balotelli
has used his Twitter account to finally admit he is the father of his baby daughter Pia after a bitter bust up with his ex-partner.
Pia was born in December 2012 and six months earlier she had called Balotelli while he was playing for Italy
in the European Championships in Germany
to tell him he was to be a father. At first he was said to be delighted but then the couple
had their falling out and he announced that he would take on his role as ‘father when it’s proved the child is mine’.
She hit back and accused him of being an ‘irresponsible father’ who was shirking on his duties.
As a result Balotelli has not even seen Pia, yet after his announcement he is expected to meet her this weekend when AC Milan travel
to Naples – where Raffaella
lives – for a league match.
