Vladimir Putin’s alleged lover Alina Kabaeva is reportedly pregnant again, and the Russian President is said to be shocked.

The 69-year-old President is said to have been in a secret relationship with Kabaeva, 38, since 2008, and it has been claimed the couple already have two children together, Daily Mail reported. She is pregnant again, according to Russian news channel General SVR Telegram, which is believed to be run by a former Kremlin intelligence officer. It claimed that Putin found out his mistress is yet again pregnant, and by the looks of it "this wasn't planned."

The channel had previously reported that Putin, "according to eyewitnesses, looked depressed and somewhat aloof." It further claimed that this is understandable as Putin recently learned that "his long-term cohabitant and mother of his children, Alina Kabaeva, was pregnant for another, or rather, apparently, an extraordinary time."

The channel had previously made claims about the Russian leader's health problems.

According to a source, Kabaeva and Putin's first son was born in secrecy in Switzerland amid huge security in 2015. Then in 2019, the second son was delivered in Moscow.

In March, sources said that Kabaeva was hiding with their children in Switzerland, reported New York Post. Kabaeva and Putin have never officially confirmed that they have a family.

From his first marriage to former flight attendant Lyudmila Shkrebneva, Putin has two daughters -- Maria, 36, and Katerina, 35. Putin and his wife divorced in 2013.

As for Kabaeva, she was extremely successful during her sporting career. The former gymnast helped Russia secure many Olympic gold medals. At one point, she became known as "Russia’s most flexible woman," reported Metro.

She moved into politics after retiring from professional sports. From 2007 to 2014, she held a seat in Russia’s lower house of parliament with the ruling United Russia party. After that, she became chair of the National Media Group.

A document recently revealed that the European Union is planning to impose sanctions on her for her role in Kremlin propaganda. She is a late addition to the list of people targeted in a sixth package of measures against Russia in response to the ongoing war in Ukraine.
