Report: Robert Kraft may have child with girlfriend Ricki Lander
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s girlfriend Ricki Lander had a baby last year, and a report speculates that he may be the father.
The New York Post’s Page Six reported on Wednesday night that Lander secretly had a baby last year. There was some speculation that the two had broken up because they hadn’t been seen together publicly for a while, but Page Six believes that is because Lander was pregnant. The two have been together publicly this year.
Page Six says a Patriots spokesperson declined comment, saying the matter was private.
Though Kraft reportedly does not talk about the child even among friends, Page Six was told he is fully supporting the baby.
From their report:
Sources say that Kraft is “taking full care of Ricki and the baby,” and he has bought her a Los Angeles mansion and made some sizable financial investments on her behalf. But Kraft will not publicly discuss if he is the baby’s biological father, even with close friends.
Kraft is 76, while Lander is 38.
Kraft has four sons with his late wife Myra, who died in 2011. Kraft and Lander began dating around a year after Myra’s death. Back in 2012, a funny video of Kraft helping Lander with an audition tape went viral.
