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.
