Diego Maradona and his wife Veronica Ojeda have revealed that they are expecting their first child together.
She told Ciudad.com that rumours of her pregnancy are in fact true. The 34-year-old wife of one of the greatest footballers of all time told the Argentinian gossip site: “I’m four months pregnant”.
Ojeda declined to go into more detail on the pregnancy while asking for some privacy for the golden couple of Argentine football.
El Diego already has two daughters from his first marriage to Claudia Villafane with Dalma and Gianna Maradona – the former of which is now married to Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.
Maradona is also the father of Diego Sinagra, who currently plays for Argentine side El Porvenir in the fourth tier of Argentine football.
Maradona’s own foray into football last came under his tenure as manager of Dubai club Al Wasl in the United Arab Emirates. He was sacked as manager of the club following a run of poor results in July.
