This is the first picture of Pia Balotelli, the new baby daughter of firebrand Manchester City striker Mario.
The little girl was born earlier this month to his ex-girlfriend Raffaella Fico, 27, and arrived three weeks early – she had been due on Christmas Day.
Balotelli has yet to see his daughter in the flesh and and is said to have only seen pictures of her via email.
Raffaella, who appeared on Italy’s version of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, described he moment she went into labour and rushed to the clinic.
‘I sent Mario a text message at 3pm when the first contractions started and then again at 6.30pm when I went into the delivery room. I sent him another as soon as I came out and Pia had been born.
‘But he only bothered to get in touch at half past midnight when my phone rang.
‘I said to him “Mario, I’ve given birth” and he just said “Ah OK, I’m not bothered” and he then put the phone down. I’ve not heard from him since.’
‘Mario’s not even bothered about seeing his daughter – even if he doesn’t want me to take a DNA test anymore I will do. I will make the results public so everyone knows Pia is Mario Balotelli’s daughter.’
If this is true then it is sad!
