What I would like to know is why it's not reported that he has a child? Is it because it would tarnish his reputation? When it is a young lady who has a child the first thing that is mentioned is that she is "a single mother".

You wanted to dance Johnny-boy now it's time to pay the piper! A fair amount, not some outrageous sum. Oh and maybe you could be a part of her life? You are a FATHER now and have been for several years. Ignoring her won't make her go away. Man up, Skelton.

they probably didn't mention it because the situation is so typical that it's hardly worth mentioning (ex. recent former player Travis Henry had 10 kids by 10 different women!)

It is not relevant to the story. Now, if it was a story on dead-beat dads and Skelton was a willing source, then it would be relevant.

It is relevant to the story! Thanks to the baby mama, she didn't interfere while he was making all of his dreams come true!!! He was not there for the middle of the night feedings, doctor visits, and all the other hard work it takes to raise a child. He should be thanking her and her family for not making his life miserable while he was fulfilling his dreams and blowing up his ego. He needs to become a man and step up to the plate and take responsibility for his actions. I guess the apple doesn't fall from the tree.

what can i say, this is a young man that did well in sports and decided to make a wrong decision. he is now the father not a dad to a beautiful young girl. i dont blame him at all, i blame his father!! his father is liviing his dream through his son. skelton senior should be ashamed that he has not shown his son responsibility. i am glad he made it to the nfl because he is very talented and because that little girl will have a great upbringing without him. all i need to ask is to pay up!! SUKA! hahaha

Wrong.

The story merely said that he'd signed a pro contract. Since he's not a candidate for political office, nor an incumbent, details of his private life are none of our business.
