ROME: Manchester City and Italy star Mario Balotelli told Italian press Wednesday that he will take a paternity test after his former fiancee claimed that she was pregnant with his child.

Raffaella Fico, a 24-year-old tv celebrity and underwear model, told Wednesday's edition of the weekly Chi that she was expecting Balotelli's baby.

“Once I have proof of my paternity, I will assume full responsibility,”said the 21-year-old Balotelli in a statement.

“I learnt from third parties a few days ago that Raffaella was expecting. That is why I decided to contact her and it was only then that she told me it was true.

“I am very disappointed, I don't think it's normal to not be told anything until the fourth month of a pregnancy.”

The couple's 18-month relationship frequently made headlines in the Italian media prior to their split in April.
