3. Romario -6 kids

Romario and Edmundo were the self-proclaimed “Bad Boys of Brazilian Football”. The two shared many similar comforts. Neither were interested in training and both favored boozing, womanizing and playing foot-volleyball together on the luscious Rio beaches.

Romario was especially keen on sex. He once told a journalist: “Good strikers can only score goals when they have had good sex the night before a match”. He then scored two hat-tricks in real life; six children.

2. Pelé -7 kids

Another football legend, Pelé has married three times and has had several affairs, producing several children. On 21 February 1966, Pelé married Rosemeri dos Reis Cholbi. They had two daughters and one son: Kelly Cristina, Jennifer, and their son Edson. The couple divorced in 1982.

From 1981 to 1986, Pelé was romantically linked with the TV presenter Xuxa. In April 1994, he married psychologist and gospel singer Assíria Lemos Seixas, who gave birth to twins Joshua and Celeste. The couple divorced in 2008.

Pelé had at least two more children from former affairs. Sandra Machado, who was born from an affair Pelé had in 1964 with a housemaid, and Anizia Machado,  who fought for years to be acknowledged by Pelé.

1. Roberto Carlos -10 kids

Roberto Carlos’ glittering career may have ended years ago but off the pitch, he continues to celebrate. Marina born in June 2017, is the second child Carlos has with his current wife, Mariana after daughter Manuela was born in 2009.

Carlos has three kids with his first wife Alejandra: Roberta, Giovanna, and Roberto Carlos Jr; the latter adopted. He also has four sons: Carlos Eduardo, Christopher, Junior, and Luca; all from other relationships.
