Who knew that a US soccer player could ever make the tabloids? Well, after Landon Donovan's surprising un-choke like performances in the World Cup, he has become just that. It did not take long for the British tabloids to announce that Landon is expecting a child with an unidentified woman in the UK.
The thing is, to me it is not that big of a deal. He split from his wife a very long time ago. I am guessing the guy has sex and he got a woman pregnant. He even says that if the baby is his that he will take care of the baby.
He 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."
Considering his history of choking during big games and events, the fact he knew about this and still played as well as he did gives me hope for the future of his career and US soccer. During the World Cup he even spoke about reuniting with his almost ex, Rules of Engagement star Bianca Kajlich.
He says they are having a good talks and apparently one of those talks was about the woman with the baby because Bianca is fine with it and supports Landon.
