Ricki Noel Lander, the 38-year old girl friend of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, reportedly gave birth back in 2017 but nobody knew about it until Page Six broke the story last night.

The twist: Kraft says the baby isn't his.

The 76-year old Patriots owner has been dating the dancer/model/actress for about five years now according to Page Six, but rumors surfaced last year that the two had split up. As it turns out, she was reportedly out of the spotlight in an attempt to hide the pregnancy. 

The two went public with their relationship after Lander gave birth, and they have since appeared together at the 2018 Super Bowl, on the red carpet at the Grammys and at the NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles. 

Despite the fact that the baby isn't his, Kraft is reportedly "thrilled" with Lander having a healthy child and he is fully supporting it.

According to Page Six,

Kraft, via a spokesman, told us “Last fall, Ricki Noel Lander became the proud mother of a beautiful, healthy baby. While Robert Kraft is not the biological father, he is thrilled with Ricki’s blessing of having a healthy child. With respect to her family’s privacy, we will not be commenting any further.”

“Bob is fully supporting the child. There is a lot of tiptoeing around the subject at the Patriots offices. Everyone is afraid to openly talk about it.”

The report also claims that Kraft bought her a mansion in Los Angeles and "made some sizable financial investments" on her behalf.
