José Reyes, who just last year returned to the Mets after being arrested for domestic abuse, is now being sued by the mother of his secret love child.

Christina Sanchez claimed that Reyes fathered their daughter, Liyah, who is now seven months old and who was born just after Reyes’ marriage to Katherine Ramirez, but demanded that she keep the child a secret, reports Page Six.

According to Sanchez’s attorney, Steven Gildin, Reyes then cut off all contact with Sanches and her daughter after his wife found out about the little girl, including child support.

“José was seeing Christina for two years, then she read in the New York Post [in 2008] that he got married to Katherine. A month later, Christina found out she was pregnant, and he screamed and demanded she keep the child a secret,” Gildin explained.

“All Christina wants is for José to be a dad to their daughter. She has been pleading with José to be in touch. The child misses her father. She can only see him by watching him play baseball on TV,” Gildin said, adding that since Reyes makes $22 million per year, if he does not step up and pay child support, they will sue for $5 million per year.

Reyes’ attorney, Eric S. Solotoff, responded to the claims by saying, “We . . . are confident that when all of the evidence comes out, it will show that our client has more than met his obligations. It is unfortunate that the other side has chosen to deal with this in this manner.”
