Tottenham striker Defoe to become a Dad

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe is set to become a father.

The Sunday Mirror says Defoe is to become a father to a baby son.

Anne-Marie Moore, 31, is e­xpecting the Tottenham Hotspur player's child early next year.

She dated Defoe, 29, for around nine months but the romance ended when Anne-Marie realised he wasn't ready to settle down.

They rekindled their ­relationship four months ago and Anne-Marie became pregnant... but the pair are now no longer a couple.

A source close to England ­striker Defoe said: "Jermain plans to be fully involved in the child's life. He has been going to the scans and will do everything he can to support the child financially and ­emotionally."
