Not slack in attracting controversies on the pitch, football star Mario Balotelli has again added another kid to his stock; he is now the proud father of boy child, Lion.


Mario had at time past doubted the paternity of his first child, a daughter called Pia.

Pia was born by his girlfriend, Italian TV personality, Raffaella Fico.

This time around, he seemed not to be in doubt about his fathering LION as he posted the news on his Instagram, reading ‘Felicita’ meaning Happiness.

Lion’s mother, 26, is a banker and part-time model, based in Switzerland.

Mario is a year older than Celia.
