The soccer star himself said, 'If I need to take responsibility, then I will provide the appropriate support' to the British woman who allegedly is pregnant with his child.

U.S. soccer ace has become the latest sports star caught up in a paternity scandal after a British woman alleged he fathered her unborn baby. The goal scorer, who was booted out of the World Cup at the weekend after Ghana beat the U.S.A., hasn't denied rumors he's the father.

Speaking to SportsIllustrated.com, he says, "I was informed of the possibility during the World Cup, and, if I need to take responsibility, then I will provide the appropriate support. This is a private matter, and I will refrain from further comment at this time."

The scandal could wreck a rumored reconciliation with estranged wife, actress . Donovan blew his wife a kiss during a post-game World Cup interview, prompting fans to speculate about the couple's relationship.

The soccer star also called Kajlich immediately after Team U.S.A. beat Algeria to win a place in the final 16 of the South African tournament. He scored the goal that won the game.

Unfortunately, the penalty he scored against Ghana on Saturday, June 26 was not enough to keep the U.S. in the competition - they lost the game 2-1.
