I AM the Daddy: Multi-millionaire NFL star reveals he did father child but refuses to pay out to mother

He's admitted to fathering her child, but American Football star Roddy White refuses to give mother Stacey Hott any financial assistance.

The Atlanta Falcons wide receiver was handed a paternity suit early last December, when Hott claimed he had fathered her five-month-old boy.

The 30-year-old has since admitted that he IS the father of her child but refuses to hand over any child support money.

White filed legal documents in Georgia earlier this month acknowledging he did father a child with a Georgia banker named Stacey Hott and he's willing to accept responsibility.

But, according to documents seen by U.S. website TMZ, White isn't ready to start paying child support just yet despite Hott's claim that he's capable of providing a "generous" amount due to his massive NFL salary. 

Stacey Hott said about NFL star, White, in early December: '[White] is a professional athlete capable of providing generous support for the minor child commensurate with his earnings.'

She also urged Roddy to take out a life insurance policy for the "benefit of the minor child."

In 2009 Roddy White signed a six-year contract to play as wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons for $50 million.

If he and Hott fail to come to a settlement, it will be left to a judge to decide Roddy's payments.
