Does Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin have a love child? Sources tell the New York Post that Putin has recently had a son with his girlfriend, 26-year-old former gymnast Alina Kabaeva. Russia shut down a paper last year that reported Putin was divorcing his wife to be with Kabaeva. Two years ago, Kabaeva was elected to the Dumas as a candidate for Putin’s party. The child has been named Dmitry, like Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.
