Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli is in a joyous mood ahead of his team’s lash with rival Manchester United after his ex-girlfriend gave birth to his first child on Wednesday.
According to the Italian media, the child has been named Pia.
She was born on Wednesday, five days earlier than expected, at the Clinica Mediterranea in Naples. Balotelli was not present at the birth. Various news outlets report that Balotelli will fly out to Italy to see his newly-born daughter and former girlfriend.
