Obafemi Martins and Mario Balotelli may soon become in-laws,  as the Nigerian striker has reportedly scored "a goal" with the sister of the naturalised Italian striker.

The bid news in Italy is that Balotelli’s sister, Abigail, is expecting a child with former Inter striker Obafemi Martins.

According to ‘Diva e Donna’ magazine in Italy, Abigail Barwuah – Balotelli’s biological sister – is pregnant.

The father is said to be Martins, a 28-year-old striker at Inter, Newcastle United, Vfl Wolfsburg, Rubin Kazan, Birmingham City and now Levante.

The magazine quotes her as saying: 
- The baby is making its presence felt. This is a very special Christmas for me.

Last month Balotelli’s ex-girlfriend Raffaella Fico gave birth to daughter Pia, though the Manchester City forward wants a DNA test before he will recognise paternity.
