Manchester City and Italy star Mario Balotelli yesterday told the Italian press Wednesday that he will take a paternity test after his former fiancee claimed that she was pregnant with his child

Raffaella Fico, a 24-year-old tv celebrity and underwear model, told yesterday’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.
