Diego Maradona's girlfriend Victoria Ojeda has given birth to
a boy called Diego Fernando and the Argentine soccer great is
now expected to travel back to Buenos Aires to meet his son.
"He's a Diego, with a big head and lots of hair," Alfredo
Cahe, Maradona's long-time doctor, told reporters outside the
Buenos Aires clinic where Ojeda gave birth late on Wednesday.
"My feeling is that Diego's going to show up at any moment."
Maradona, 52, is working in Dubai and Ojeda's lawyer Jorge
Auruccio said he did not know if he would be flying home to
Argentina to meet Diego Fernando, who weighed 3.2 kilograms.
The pregnancy triggered angry exchanges on social media
networks between Ojeda, 35, Maradona's ex-wife Claudia
Villafane and his daughters Dalma and Giannina.
In the 1980s, during his days at Serie A club Napoli in
Italy, Maradona fathered another son, called Diego Jr, who he
said was born following a relationship that lasted a day.
Maradona, considered one of the most gifted soccer players in
history, took up his current post as honorary sports
ambassador in Dubai in September, less than two months after
being sacked by the United Arab Emirates club Al Wasl.
