Mario Balotelli’s pregnant ex-girlfriend has penned a passionate letter to the soccer star – agreeing to take a paternity test to prove the baby is his.
In the emotionally-charged message, sexy lingerie model Raffaella Fico, 27, slams Balotelli, 21, for accusing her of “cashing in” on the pregnancy.
The couple split in April after their tempestuous year-long relationship ended with a doorstep bust-up.
But two weeks ago, TV showgirl Raffaella revealed she was almost four months pregnant – and the baby was his.
Initially, the Manchester City striker was said to be “delighted” with the news but then issued a strongly worded statement saying he would ”accept his full responsibilities once a paternity test” was completed.
Raffaella’s open letter – published in the latest edition of glossy Italian weekly Chi – speaks in loving terms of Balotelli.
She makes clear she still has feelings for him, even though the Italian soccer star has insisted there is no chance of reconciliation.
She wrote: “This child I desire with all my heart and I want it because it is not a child that arrived by chance but instead it is the fruit of love between two people and you know well what I am talking about.
”This letter was the only way I could speak to you. I am happy to take the DNA test but I still have the text messages you sent me from Krakow (during Euro 2012) in which you said you were happy with the news I had given you.
”Even if the events of life have separated us you will be a present and responsible father, as well as one being full of love for his child. You know full well where to find me and I will always be ready to speak with you about the future of your child. Of our child.”
She added: ”I’m writing this letter because I was left deeply hurt as a woman but also as a mother by what you said in your cold statement.
“I find it unfair on your part that you wrote (if you indeed did write it) the insinuation that I was cashing in on the birth of our child.
