Victor Ortiz To Be A First-time Father - Report

  • 23 November 2016

The professional boxer and Southpaw actor and his partner are preparing to welcome a baby boy, a source close to the 29-year-old has told ETOnline.

Ortiz recently shared a selfie of himself and Deborah on Instagram with the caption, "Two goofballs @__debborah__ #goodvibes."

It isn't clear how long Ortiz has been dating Deborah. He was previously linked to Kobe Bryant's estranged wife Vanessa, who Kobe has since reconciled with, as well as his Dancing with the Stars professional partner Lindsay Arnold, who he danced with in the 2013 series.

Ortiz, who also starred in The Expendables 3, previously said that he will never let his kids follow in his footsteps when it comes to boxing.

“If ever comes a time when I have kids... they will never fight, they will never be any part of boxing. They will never be anywhere near boxing," he said on AfterBuzz TV's Dancing with the Stars post-show interview. "They are gonna go to college, they are gonna graduate, they are going to go on with their lives, get their education. Daddy got enough beating for the family.”
