Mario Balotelli's Unborn Son Already Immortalised as a Crib Figurine

Last Wednesday a baby version of Azzurri star Mario Balotelli—complete with bleached mohawk—joined the figurine of Balotelli in Euro Cup garb on Naples' San Gregorio Armeno Street, famous for its crib figurines commemorating important public figures.

A crib figurine of Balotelli's former fiancée, model and television star Raffaella Fico, completes the "family" that has been making headlines since Fico publicly announced last month that she's carrying Balotelli's child.

Fico claims to be in her fourth month of pregnancy, but the pair ended their engagement in April. Balotelli has insisted on a paternity test, as the conception would have occurred around the same time that he and Fico separated.

"Once I have proof of my paternity, I will assume full responsibility", he stated earlier this month in a press release concerning the baby rumours and Fico responded with a public letter agreeing to the paternity test.

The 21-year-old star of Manchester City has been vacationing in coastal Spain and his hometown Brescia since the Euro cup, where he scored the two goals in the semi-final that allowed Italy to advance to the final round of the tournament.
