Russian President Vladimir Putin is now rumored to have a second love child with former Olympian gymnast Alina Kabaeva.
Vladimir Putin has long been linked to the 29-year-old rhythmic gymnast, and the two were already believed to have a 3-year-old son together.
The new child, a daughter, was born in November, a source tells the New York Post. Russian media have never officially named Vladimir Putin and Alina Kabaeva the parents of the boy, and she’s called the child her nephew in the past.
The Russian media has, however, reported Vladimir Putin and Alina Kabaeva were engaged in the past, though the newspaper that did so quickly retracted the story and was then shut down.
Vladimir Putin’s wife, Lyudmila, hasn’t been seen in public in quite some time and the Chechen president recently referred to her as Putin’s “first wife.”
