QOTD: Nicklas Bendtner’s Family Matters

Huge thanks to Danish dames Nathalia & Elsebeth for their translation help!

Recently, the Danish press has been hard at work trying to make sense of a possible reunion between Arsenal’s Nicklas Bendtner and his Baroness, Caroline Fleming. What sparked the fury was Nicky B.’s interview with Ekstra Bladet, where he spoke about possibly skipping out on Denmark and this summer’s U21 Euros in order to see more of his family:

I need to make up my mind about if I want to say ‘no’ to a month of quality time with my family and instead go with a much shorter vacation….I already don’t see my son very much. We also have two children attending school. And they can not just go to Denmark, so the family can be together…”

Working backwards for a second, if you’re wondering who the two children are that he’s referring to, they would be C. Fleming’s kids from her previous marriage to wealthy Englishman Rory Fleming (the kids, seen above, went for a stroll with their Mum and Stepfather in London, March 2010).

Since the birth of their son three months ago, it’s been a game of diamond-encrusted cat and mouse with these two (along with his supposed lady-in-the-loo). Nevertheless, we’re always wrought with poorly-washed boxer brief grief when we learn of footballers’ family struggles, and hope Nicklas and Caroline can work some sort of custody/cash/quality time deal out soon.

    all i know is i love him =]
    all that handsome cannot be handle by her… lol

    but i do hope he'll get to see more of his family!

    Well it was clear this relationship was doomed from the getco. The child is only 3 months old and they're not together anymore. They proably broke up when she was still pregnant. It seems cougar Caroline had an agenda here. She was to bed this hotter younger man, get knocked up, sue for child support and bounce..

    as bad as i feel for him, i always had a feeling it wasn't going to work out!
    i just didn't think their relationship would fall apart so SOON!

    It's nice to see that our nick is trying to be a responsible father in the midst of his revelling in young footballer life. It would be nice to see him and the baronness back together again, but i am not holding my breath at this very second. Let's see what enfolds!

    In another article…
    it actually sounds like the two children he's referring are his siblings.
    The entire quote is: "In my family we are five children, and there are two other children that are in school…"

    Thought they’d separated! Quite confusing, hope they sort it out too.. Too much going on for a struggling/young footy player.. Good luck Bendy!

  10. I'm kind of hoping this one works out. I''m just happy to know that he actually wants to spend time with his son.

  11. JA7 says:

    Poor Nicky B! It's heartbreaking to hear that he cant see his son often :( I hope things work out properly between them

  12. Ayah says:

    Wait!!!!!! They're still together? i thought they broke up. ok i'm confused now. On another note, how cute are these kids with their sunglasses/papparrazi shields???
