Maradona names another son Diego again

Argentina football legend Diego Maradona has never been short of modesty - and that is again evident in his choice of name for his newborn son.

Maradona has decided to call his son… Diego.

Now, it is not that unusual to give a son the same name as his father - but it does become a bit stranger when you realise that Maradona already has a son called Diego.

Maradona fathered his first Diego in the 1980s during his days at Serie A club Napoli in Italy following a relationship that lasted just one day.

His current girlfriend Victoria Ojeda gave birth to 'Diego Fernando' in Buenos Aires on Wednesday night.

"He's a Diego, with a big head and lots of hair," Alfredo Cahe, Maradona's long-time doctor, told reporters outside the Buenos Aires clinic where Ojeda gave birth.

"My feeling is that Diego's going to show up at any moment."

Maradona, 52, is working in Dubai and Ojeda's lawyer Jorge Auruccio said he did not know if he would be flying home to Argentina to meet Diego Fernando, who weighed 3.2 kilograms (seven pounds).

The pregnancy triggered angry exchanges on social media networks between Ojeda, 35, Maradona's ex-wife Claudia Villafane and his daughters Dalma and Giannina.




Maradona, considered one of the most gifted football players in history, took up his current post as honorary sports ambassador in Dubai in September, less than two months after being sacked by United Arab Emirates club Al Wasl.

Maradona still has some way to go before he matches former heavyweight boxing champion George Foreman. His five sons are named George Jr., George III, George IV, George V, and George VI while he also has daughters named Freeda George and Georgetta.
