Raffaella Fico, a 24-year-old tv celebrity and underwear model, told Wednesday's edition of the weekly Chi that she was expecting Balotelli's baby.

"Once I have proof of my paternity, I will assume full responsibility," said the 21-year-old Balotelli in a statement.

"I learnt from third parties a few days ago that Raffaella was expecting. That is why I decided to contact her and it was only then that she told me it was true.

"I am very disappointed, I don't think it's normal to not be told anything until the fourth month of a pregnancy."

The couple's 18-month relationship frequently made headlines in the Italian media prior to their split in April.

    LOL! Who would need to take paternity tests for Balotelli's child? Wouldn't it be obvious?

      You muppets are assuming there is one black person in the whole of Milan? Yes in the Italy football team there is one or two(I saw a sub there) but they are plenty black people there they just don't all play football. Besides that girl goes all over europe and overseas. So Balo is right.
