A good news in true sense for Diego Maradona.

It is not that the Argentinian football legend got a call to manage his state team again. Not even some Dubai based club assigned him for the second time, but Maradona is set to become a father again for the fourth time.

His partner Veronica Ojeda revealed this on Friday that the pregnancy reports are true."I'm four months pregnant," Ojeda, 34, told Ciudad.com.

The couple are thought to have been trying for another baby since Veronica miscarried in January 2010.

The 51-year-old Maradona has two daughters - Dalma, 25, and Giannina, 23 - with ex-wife Claudia Villafane, and a 26-year-old son, Diego Jnr, born following an affair with Italian Claudia Sinagra during his tenure at Napoli.

The youngest, Giannina, is married to Man City star Sergio Aguero and made Maradona a granddad in February 2009 by giving birth to son Benjamin in Madrid.
