Pete Doherty confirms reports that he is a new father
Pete Doherty has confirmed reports that he is the father to a baby born to a South African super model.
Lindi Hingston hit the headlines recently when she claimed that her new daughter was actually fathered by the Libertines man.
In an in-depth and frank interview with the Independent, Doherty confirmed that the baby is indeed his and that he regrets not being able to make the birth.
He said that the baby was born early. He said:
"I'm really surprised she's done that [talked to a newspaper]. The little girl was two months premature. I said I'd try to be there for the birth. You know what, I don't want to talk about that."
He added: "Yeah, she's mine."
Doherty also revealed that he has stopped injecting drugs, deciding to "tone down" a bit as he continues with a new, "serious" relationship. He said:
"I've stopped injecting. The only way I see myself in a serious relationship is if I am toning it down a bit. When you're banging up all day you can't really have someone else in your life, especially if she's an English rose. I wouldn't let her touch anything, I just wouldn't."
