Family Spokesperson Responds to Robert Kraft Baby Rumors



    Kraft Says He 'Understands' Why Other Teams Hate Patriots

    New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said in an interview Thursday in Minneapolis that he understands why fans of other NFL teams hate the Patriots. "If we had to look at a team the way we've won, if we were Jets fans or Dolphins fans, I used to feel that way about the Dolphins when I was growing up and Shula was coaching there, until 'Squish the Fish,'" Kraft said.

    A family spokesperson is responding to rumors that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is the father of his girlfriend's baby.

    Page Six reported that Kraft's 38-year-old girlfriend Ricki Noel Lander secretly had a baby last fall.

    After rumors that the two had broken up, Page Six reported that Lander was pregnant and wanted to stay out of the public eye.

    She gave birth to the baby last fall.

    Since then, the Kraft and Lander have been spotted together at various events, including the 2018 Super Bowl and the Grammys.

    Sources told Page Six that 76-year-old Kraft has been taking care of Lander and the baby.

    A Kraft family spokesman issued a statement to NBC10 Boston regarding the issue:

    "Last fall, Ricki Noel Lander became a 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."
