Landon Donovan has more to hang his head about than United States' World Cup defeat this past Saturday.
Looks like he might be someone's baby's daddy.
During the World Cup, a British woman, who has not been identified, said that she was carrying the soccer star's child. Damn you, woman! You don't drop a bomb like that on an athlete during an important tournament. No wonder we didn't win.
Donovan, who is currently separated from his actress wife Bianca Kajlich, told Sports Illustrated, "I was informed of the possibility during the World Cup, and if I need to take responsibility, then I will provide the appropriate support."
At least he's taking responsibility instead of denying it (or buying her silence) like so many of these other celebrities seem to do.
I was hoping for a reconciliation between him and Bianca since she had been tweeting support for him and he blew her a kiss during a sideline interview. I wonder how she received this new tidbit of information ...
Think his response was appropriate? Do you think he and Bianca can reconcile after this?
