Russian News Sources Hush Hush Over Putin’s New Son

December 16, 2009

Russia (ChattahBox) – Alina Kabaeva, the former gymnast and mistress-turned-girlfriend of Vladamir Putin, has given birth to a baby boy. But the happy news is not making headlines in her son’s home country.

The 26-year-old has been with Putin since 2006, when she was linked to the then-married Russian political leader, and was even rumored to be set to marry him after his divorce from his wife Ludmilla.

But the marriage never came. Instead, they have been quietly together over the last several years, culminating in the birth of Putin’s first son, who Alina has named Dimitry.

“The most puzzling part of this story is that at press time, not a single major Russian media has reported that Kabaeva had a son,” posted on their website.

Maybe not so puzzling.

Putin has always guarded his personal life and image very carefully. To widely report through the country that he has a son out of wedlock with the woman he had an affair with…perhaps not the most positive of ideals to get behind.

In any case, congratulations to Alina on the birth of her son. He is sure to be as beautiful as his mother. Though hopefully with less of his father’s temperament.
