Landon Donovan's estranged wife Bianca Kajlich was aware of reports that he got a British girl pregnant after they separated, and remains supportive of him.
A source close to the Rules of Engagement star, currently separated from Donovan, says, "She's been aware of the claim is extremely supportive of Landon."
"She was not blindsided by this and isn’t angry."
A British woman who has not been identified told a UK newspaper she is allegedly carrying Landon Donovan's love child. The news broke late last week.
Can Bianca Kajlich and Landon Donovan patch things up?
Probably the biggest name on the U.S. World Cup team, Donovan scored the winner against Algeria last week and the team's goal against Ghana Saturday.
The soccer star has acknowledged that the paternity claim might be true, although nothing has been confirmed and he won't comment again until it is.
"I was informed of the possibility during the World Cup, and if I need to take responsibility, then I will provide the appropriate support," he told SI.com.
Landon Donovan and Bianca Kajlich, who wed in 2006, had been trying to repair their relationship. He even blew a kiss to her during a recent interview.
He also declared they "are not officially divorced" and shared an "emotional phone call" following his winning goal against Algeria, which "was nice."
