London, July 12 (ANI): Mario Balotelli's pregnant ex girlfriend Raffaella Fico has written an emotional letter to the footie star insisting that he is the father.
Fico, 27, has also agreed to have a paternity test on the unborn child to prove her claims, the Mirror reported.
The lingerie model added that she is "deeply hurt" by Italian footballer Mario, 21, suggesting that she is cashing in on the pregnancy.
In her open letter, which appears in an Italian magazine, TV showgirl Raffaella tells Balotelli: "This child I desire with all my heart and I want it because it is not a child that arrived by chance but instead it is the fruit of love between two people and you know well what I am talking about.
"This letter was the only way I could speak to you. I am happy to take the DNA test but I still have the text messages you sent me from Krakow [during Euro 2012] in which you said you were happy with the news I had given you.
"Even if the events of life have separated us you will be a present and responsible father, as well as one being full of love for his child. You know full well where to find me and I'll always be ready to speak with you about the future of your child. Of our child."
"I'm writing this letter because I was left deeply hurt as a woman but also as a mother by what you said in your cold statement. I find it unfair on your part that you wrote (if you indeed did write it) the insinuation that I was cashing in on the birth of our child," she wrote.
During the letter in Chi magazine, Italian Fico also admitted she was still suffering greatly from Balotelli's decision to "end our love story."
She added that while he doubted her word about him being the father, she had never asked for proof of his innocence when there were numerous reports that he had been cheating on her.
They split in April after their stormy, year-long relationship ended with a furious doorstep row. (ANI)
