Johannesburg - It seems Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana defender, Eric "Tower" Mathoho, is finally ready to be a proper dad to his son.
Just weeks ago, Tower asked for a paternity test after it was alleged that he had fathered a baby boy.
Eric apparently visited his son last week in Meadowlands, Soweto where he apologised to his baby mama for the drama of the last few weeks.
"I never thought he'd come to see his child. He has hurt my family and me deeply when he rejected the boy and forced us to undergo a paternity test," Tower's baby mama, Hangwani Muthavhatshindi says. "He apologised to me and my family for rejecting our son," she added.
He apparently even put a picture of himself and his son on Whatsapp.
But a source in Hangwani's family believes Towers action are just an attempt to get himself out of trouble.
"He (Eric) thought he was smart. But he realised that my niece's next stop was the maintenance court," the source says.
