Soccer stud Landon Donovan is NOT going to be a dad

He made a statement to Sports Illustrated last month when he was  informed of the possibility that a British woman was pregnant with his child.

Donovan, 28, who is still separated from his wife, "Rules of Engagement" actress Bianca Kajlich, did not challenge or deny the U.K. report. All he said was that if it turned out to be true, "I will provide the appropriate support."

Now he can breathe a major league sigh of relief.

"I will not be a dad any time soon, which is good news for me," Donovan told E! Online at the ESPY Awards on Wednesday (July 14).
