Levante striker Martins set to join Balotelli family after baby claims

Levante striker Obafemi Martins has joined the family of Manchester City firebrand Mario Balotelli.

Levante striker Obafemi Martins has joined the family of Manchester City firebrand Mario Balotelli.

According to ‘Diva e Donna’ magazine in Italy, Abigail Barwuah – Balotelli’s biological sister – is pregnant.

The father is said to be Martins, a 28-year-old striker at Inter, Newcastle United, Vfl Wolfsburg, Rubin Kazan, Birmingham City and now Levante.

The magazine quotes her as saying: “The baby is making its presence felt. This is a very special Christmas for me.”

Last month Balotelli’s ex-girlfriend Raffaella Fico gave birth to daughter Pia, though the Manchester City forward wants a DNA test before he will recognise paternity.
