Kyle Walker’s fiance has paid tribute to the ‘best daddy’ in a mocking Instagram post – after he deliberately chose not to acknowledge his fourth son with another woman on a pair of football boots.
Lauryn Goodman, who is mum to 13-month-old son Kairo with the Manchester City player, was furious when her son wasn’t placed on Kyle’s football boots – which only featured his three other children with fiance Annie Kilner, Riaan, Reign, and Roman.
Kyle’s Instagram post about the boots was flooded with angry comments from Lauryn’s fans about the ‘snub’ before the comments were swiftly turned off.
Annie shared the kissing snap with the caption: “Happy birthday to my fiance and the best daddy to our three boys.”
Lauryn now wants a public apology from her ex and even started a petition on Change.org to get Puma and Kyle to act, which has already achieved 1,345 signatures towards a target of 1,500.
She wrote: “In a time where mental health has been at the forefront showing implications and damages it can cause.
“With some having detrimental effects I ask you all to sign this petition to show your support.
“Kairos fathers latest post (@kylewalker2) has not only absolutely shocked me but shocked everyone to the core.”
In the message, Lauryn also wrote: “No matter anyones opinion on me. Kairo has done NOTHING & he does not deserve any of this let alone publicly.”
Addressing the backlash to the photo that Kyle posted, Lauryn wrote: “It is simply not good enough to ignore all of the complaints you have received.
“I know you have received so many EMAILS, Tweets, Insta Dms, and Phone calls.
“I know charities on behalf of bullying children have been in contact with them.”
“For the future if Kyle wishes to have his sons he either has them ALL or NONE. It is simple.”

The star is a single mum to Kyle’s fourth child, welcoming baby Kairo in April 2020.
After announcing her pregnancy, Lauryn shared the shock news that Kyle was the baby’s father – with the football star having been in a relationship with teenage sweetheart Annie Kilner for 10 years.
Kyle met Annie when he was 18-year-old and played for his hometown of Sheffield with the pair going on to have three kids together.
He has not commented on the backlash against the boots or the accusations made by Lauryn.
