    Rumours swirl Russia’s Vladimir Putin ‘upset’ to learn mistress is pregnant again – World News

    Vladimir Putin's glum demeanor has been blamed on rumours that his mistress is expecting.

    Russia's despotic leader, 69, is said to be the father of at least two of Olympic gymnast Alina Kabaeva's children.

    But earlier this week the president was said to have been seen looking "depressed and somewhat aloof".

    And according to Russian political expert Valery Soloviev, who is said to have a network of Kremlin insiders at his disposal, the leader's upset comes after he found out that 38-year-old Kabaeva has another baby on the way.

    Mr Soloviev shared the news on the popular Russian news Telegram channel GeneralSVR, local media reports.

    The post reads: "We have already reported that yesterday, Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to eyewitnesses, looked depressed and somewhat aloof.

    "This is understandable, yesterday Putin learned that his long-term cohabitant and mother of his children, Alina Kabaeva, was pregnant for another, or rather, apparently, an extraordinary time.

    "Here the president would live and be happy, but no…"

    One cheeky commenter on the Telegram feed asked: "Who's the daddy?"

    Putin has never admitted to being in a relationship with Kabaeva, who now works as a media executive, but multiple reports suggest she is the mother of at least two of his secret children.

    The claims were backed up last week by a source linked to the doctor present at the 2015 birth.

    Putin has hidden his alleged secret family from voters – and was not present at either of the births.

    The report supports strong rumours over a Putin-Kabaeva family.

    It also indicates that Kabaeva is the secret Russian first lady at a time when the country is suffering major losses from the war with Ukraine.
