It was emerged that Chelsea and Nigerian International John Obi Mikel has confidentially fathered two children with different women.
Mikel, 28, is a father to a 4-year-old son and a 1-year-old daughter after short relationships with their mother.
The midfielder reportedly bought an apartment in 2013 which cost £500,000, for his son and baby mama, and eager to play a part in the boy’s life.
The Sun reports that: “John also agreed to give her tens of thousands a year in upkeep and, I think, agreed to give her a new car every three to five years.”
In addition, Mikel always provide for his daughter and loves her very much.
A friend to Mikel’s baby mama divulge that: “John has provided for her and the girl. She seems to have come into money since having the baby and is keeping a low profile.”
The football star is now dating a Russian business woman, Olga Diyachenko, and is proud of his new girlfriend. He has been posting pictures of the both of them, kissing and smitten, on social media lately.
He said in an interview in Nigeria last year: “I’ve been dating seriously for two years now. I’m in love. I’ve found love.”
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the footballer told The Sun: “This is an entirely private matter. John provides for and cares for his children and will continue to do so. He asks that their privacy is respected.”
