Raffaella Fico asserted in her interview with weekly magazine Chi: “Mario and I are now rebuilding our relationship.”
The Italian model reportedly told the footballer about the news before his game against Germany in the Euro 2012 semis — a game in which he scored two goals.
The couple broke up back in April after it was revealed that Mario Balotelli had flings with Wayne Rooney hooker Jenny Thompson, Holly Henderson and Chloe Evans.
But the pair are now set to become boyfriend and girlfriend again, most likely with a wedding on the horizon.
In the meantime, the focus is on Balotelli Jr, whose gender has actually yet to be determined.
According to Raffaella Fico, her true love Super Mario will get to name the child.
“Now, I’m waiting for Mario to discover the gender of the child, ” the showgirl said.
“Although he would prefer a boy and to choose the name, I only know for sure that the child will boldly carry his surname.”
Describing how good Mario Balotelli would be as a dad, Fico added: “He will be a playful companion, sweet, loving and kind.”
