Robert Kraft says he is not biological father of Ricki Lander’s child
Robert Kraft’s longtime girlfriend Ricki Lander recently gave birth to a child, but the New England Patriots owner says he is not the father.
After a bombshell report surfaced Wednesday night claiming Kraft and Lander secretly had a baby together last year, the Kraft family issued a statement on Thursday saying Kraft is not the biological father.

The original report from Page Six said Kraft has not discussed whether he is the biological father even with his close friends but that he is fully supporting the child. The Patriots owner 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.
