Last year we reported that Larry Fitzgerald was slapped with a paternity suit by a former Raiders cheerleader named Angela Nazario. C.J. of the MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE reported at the time that Fitzgerald was none-to-pleased about Nazario’s claim, and “A source close to Nazario claims that Fitzgerald told her to hide out in a small town, and even suggested she get an abortion.”
After a court-ordered paternity test, C.J. today has the scoop on the results.
“My beautiful grandson is not a secret,” Mary Lou Nazario told me via telephone Tuesday. Reminded that it was April Fools’ Day, Nazario laughed and said she was dead serious that a Coconino County judge has issued an order confirming that Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald Jr. is father of Angela Nazario’s baby, Devin Nazario Fitzgerald, who was born Jan. 1, weighing 7 pounds, 6 ounces.
When Nazario’s paternity suit went public, Fitgerald said at the time, “I don’t need this all over the news like Matt Leinart.”
Of course, Leinart has his own out-of-wedlock baby momma. And after seeing the most recent news about the backup QB beer bonging with underage girls in Arizona, it is a rather delicious coincidence that Fitzgerald had his ass nailed to the floorboards this week.
Also, Fitzgerald has had no comment on the test results, though spies tell us he has been seen with the baby recently. And no, we aren’t talking about him having a pink lemonade with Leinart at Islands.
