Maradona’s 34-year-old partner Veronica Ojeda is five months pregnant with the footballer’s fourth child. “She took it lightly and Diego with surprise (because) it was not planned by the couple,” Cahe told reporters at a Buenos Aires hospital where Maraodona’s father is being treated for a urinary tract infection. Cahe said the pregnancy was going well.

Maradona, has two daughters — Dalma (25) and Giannina (23) — from his marriage to Claudia Villafane, and a 26-year-old son, Diego Jr, born off an affair with Italian Claudia Sinagra when he was playing for Napoli. Giannina is married to Sergio Aguero, and they have a son, Benjamin (3).
