As we all knew, being the kid of a celebrity has its perks. To wit, Landon Donovan taught Kelly Ripa’s son a few soccer moves when he appeared on Regis and Kelly this morning. Donavon also talked to The Early Show about his estranged wife Biana Kajlich as it’s come out he may have fathered a child out of wedlock.
“I’ve known Bianca for eight years. We have been and will always be best of friends,” he said. “And my personal life, people who know me close know how much she’s meant to this whole process. I wouldn’t be where I was on that day without her and I wanted to share that moment with her, which was really special.”
As previously reported, a source says that Kajlich, 33, star of CBS’ Rules of Engagement, had “been aware” of the news before it broke and “is extremely supportive of Donovan. She was not blindsided by this and isn’t angry.”
Donovan says he will take responsibility if the child is his.
“I was informed of the possibility during the World Cup, and if I need to take responsibility, then I will provide the appropriate support,” he told Sports Illustrated.
