U.S. soccer star Landon Donovan may not be as squeaky clean as he seems, according to a Sports Illustrated report on Sunday that says he may have a love child.

It said a report set to run in a British tabloid quotes a U.K. woman who claims to be carrying Donovan's child.

"I was informed of the possibility during the World Cup, and if I need to take responsibility, then I will provide the appropriate support," Donovan told He added that he would not further comment on the "private matter."

Donovan and his "Rules of Engagement" actress wife, Bianca Kajlich, have been separated for nearly a year but are not divorced and do not have any children. The news may still be jarring, however, as reports Thursday said the couple may be getting back together.

After scoring the late winning goal against Algeria, Donovan blew a kiss to Kajlich during a sideline interview. Sources close to the couple later said it would not come as a surprise "if Landon and Bianca were back together very soon," according to People magazine.

A separate Sunday report in Britain's News of the World said Donovan, who scored three goals for the United States in the World Cup, may be abandoning his home team, L.A. Galaxy, in favor of the English Premier League's Everton.

The 28-year-old played for the northern England team for three months last season.

"There's always a chance of him coming back, but it's a question of what L.A. Galaxy want," the paper quoted an insider as saying.
