Eric Benet & Wife Manuela’s “Lil’ Soccer Player”

Eric Benet & Wife Manuela's "Lil' Soccer Player"

Grammy nominated artist Eric Benet is going to be a father again, soon welcoming a child with new wife, Manuela Testolini, whom he married earlier this year.

The proud papa recently shared some photos of the mom-to-be’s bump via Twitter, telling fans, “We’re expanding.”

Eric also posted a photo of baby’s foot pressing against a belly, with the tweet: “We bout to have us a lil’ soccer player!” but later admitted that it was not Manuela.

This is the newlyweds’ first child together, though baby will make #2 for Eric, who’s also dad to daughter India, 18.

“I’m just at this very happy, very fulfilling, exciting time in my life,” Benet told Essence of his thoughts about being a dad again. “I’ve got one child in her second year of college and another on the way.

“With India I was the young, cool daddy,” Eric explains. “Now I’m going to be that old daddy.”

    Except the second photo is NOT his wife, nor did he take the picture.

    It is not even real. It is a hoax photo that has been circulating the internet since 2004.

    Lame.

    But congrats to them!

      ETA:

      I just love that people think it is real. I mean, really? Do you not know anything about the human body? It is called Photoshop, people.

      I am outraged. My girlfriend said that she has seen that picture over the years and I just researched it on line and sure enough it has been around for years. This article even states that this guy took this picture. What a farce!
