Married Premier League footballer ‘fathered a child with mistress during two-year affair’ 

A married Premier League footballer allegedly fathered a child with his mistress, who claims he texted her on his wedding day. 

Jaqueline Sousa, a 33-year-old event hostess, claims she has been raising her daughter on her own for nine months after the footballer cut all ties with her.

Sousa – whose surname was changed for legal reasons – told the Sun on Sunday that last month she sent a letter to the player’s club, detailing a paternity claim for maintenance payments.

In the letter, she claimed she had been completely cut out of the star’s life since she gave birth to their now nine-month-old daughter.

Speaking publicly for the first time, she told the tabloid: ‘I was shocked, mostly because I didn’t think he would take it [the baby news] so badly, since he was the one who talked about us having children together.

‘We tried to agree that he was not going to be physically present in the baby’s life but that he was going to financially contribute to help me with raising this baby.’ 

Ms Sousa’s relationship with the unidentified footballer first began in 2018 after he sent her a flirtatious message on social media, she said.

The pair exchanged messages for almost a year before they finally met in a hotel.

‘He texted me all the time, even during his wedding ceremony and party. I broke up with him the night he got married because it was just too much to handle for me,’ she continued.

She even said that the player’s brother told her the star was very anxious because he couldn’t stop thinking of Ms Sousa at the wedding, and that he paid for WiFi on the plane to his honeymoon so he could continue messaging her while in the air.

The mystery player cut her a financial deal for the last trimester of her pregnancy, until her due date, she claims.

In return for the deal, Ms Sousa was to never reveal the identity of the baby’s father.

However, she says she wrongly believed the father would want to be a part of their baby’s life, but has since completely severed ties with her.
