This is one crazy story about the Patriots, which has less to do with football, and more about an NFL owner who dates a much, much younger woman. Now let’s get to the good stuff.

According to Page Six. The New England Patriots owner’s girlfriend Ricki Noel Lander,  gave birth to a child last year after dropping out of the public eye, which led to rumors she and Kraft had broken up  

Kraft, via a spokesman, told us “Last fall, Ricki Noel Lander became the proud mother of a beautiful, healthy baby. While Robert Kraft is not the biological father, he is thrilled with Ricki’s blessing of having a healthy child. With respect to her family’s privacy, we will not be commenting any further.”  

One of the sources said, “Bob is fully supporting the child. There is a lot of tiptoeing around the subject at the Patriots offices. Everyone is afraid to openly talk about it.” The source added that Kraft’s four sons are anticipating that the Kraft family trust could be changed to provide for the child. In 2013, the sons asked to modify the three-decades-old family trust to give them more control over assets. The Massachusetts Supreme Court approved the move. Kraft’s spokesman also declined to comment on the trust.

Sounds to me like Lander wanted to have a child, but the Patriots owner couldn’t help her out in that department. He’s old enough to be her grandfather, kind of. Lander is 38 years old, while Bob is chugging along at the ripe old age 76. Someone needs to find out who the father is. We’re on it!
