A glamorous Olympic gymnast and Member of Parliament of Putin’s United Party of Russia, linked last year to Vladimir Putin, has welcomed a son.
Alina Kabaeva, 26, is refusing to name the father.
Alina missed the Beijing Olympics last year due to ‘injury’ but remains active in politics.
One close friend of Alina, Irina Viner, wife of oligarch and Arsenal shareholder Alisher Usmanov, and Alina’s rhythmic gymnastics coach, indicated she knew the identity of the father.
‘When Alina finds the right time, she will say it herself. I’m just happy for her,’ she said.
