SOCCER bad boy Mario Balotelli was out with a model called Fanny the night his daughter was born.
He wined and dined Vogue magazine beauty Fanny Robert Neguesha, 22, who had jetted in from Brussels to visit him.
And when the following day a Sun reporter called at the Manchester City ace’s Cheshire mansion to congratulate him on becoming a dad, she opened the door.
Asked if she was a friend of 22-year-old Mario, Fanny, who is Belgian but lives in Paris, replied: “No. I am the GIRLFRIEND.”
She confirmed Balotelli had become a father, saying: “Yes, yes, but Mario is not here — she will come after, maybe.”
Earlier as ex-girlfriend Raffaella Fico gave birth to Pia at an Italian clinic, Mario and Fanny had been photographed together leaving Manchester’s Zouk Bar & Grill — where he first met Wayne Rooney escort girl Jenny Thompson.
A source said: “Fanny is absolutely stunning and Mario really likes her. They only met a few weeks ago but are both very keen on each other.
“Mario wanted to spend some time with her so paid for her and a pal to fly to Manchester. They have had a blast and Fanny was with Mario the night his daughter was born. He was delighted to become a dad and Fanny was happy for him as well. But at the moment he hasn’t made any plans to go and see Raffaella and his daughter.”
During her stay, Fanny — who describes herself on Facebook as a “professional dancer, model, actress and singer” — visited City’s Etihad Stadium with Balotelli’s 13-year-old sister Angel for the game against Manchester United.
She also regularly updated her Twitter page posting photos showing her sprawled across the bonnet of Balotelli’s camouflage-painted Bentley and sat on his quad bike.
Raffaella and Mario were once engaged but she dumped him after The Sun revealed this year that he cheated on her with Jenny Thompson. Two months later she announced she was pregnant.
Mario’s 20-year-old brother Enoch has quit his Manchester-based football club — after failing to make a single appearance.
Non-league Salford City have let him go to Italian fourth division side Bogliasco.
