Report: Joran van der Sloot to become a father behind bars

It appears Joran van der Sloot is about to add a new role to his résumé - father.

Van der Sloot became well-known around the world for the murder of Stephany Flores in Peru and for being arrested twice, but never charged, in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teenager Natalee Holloway in Aruba.

Now the Dutch citizen may be preparing to welcome a new child into the world while he is serving 28 years in a Peruvian prison for Flores' death, according to the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, which says it confirmed the news over the phone with van der Sloot himself.

 2011: Video shows van der Sloot confessing that he killed woman

The mother, identified only as "Leidi" by the newspaper, met van der Sloot in prison and became pregnant after an unsupervised visit with the jailed 28-year-old, the paper said.

Van der Sloot's lawyer said he did not confirm the pregnancy, as stated by the newspaper. But Maximo Altez told Mayra Cuevas of "In Session" that Leidi is registered as van der Sloot’s girlfriend at Piedras Gordas Prison and they have had conjugal visits. Van der Sloot can receive visitors once or twice a month. Altez says he met Leidi in prison through another inmate.

This isn't the first time rumors have swirled around van der Sloot's love life since he's been in the spotlight. Earlier reports that he was getting married behind bars were knocked down as false.

Van der Sloot admitted to killing Flores, 21, in his Lima hotel room in 2010. The judges gave him a sentence two years short of the 30-year maximum. They ordered that he be expelled from Peru at the end of his sentence and required him to pay about $74,500 in reparations to Flores' relatives.

Van der Sloot confessed to robbery in addition to murder, admitting that he stole Flores' belongings, including more than $300 in local currency, credit cards and the victim's van as a means to leave the country. He fled to Chile and was arrested a few days later.

Another van der Sloot attorney, Jose Luis Jimenez, has said that his client was under special stress the day of the 2010 murder, which marked five years after Holloway, an 18-year-old from Alabama, disappeared while vacationing on Aruba.

Investigators have said they believe van der Sloot killed Flores after she found something related to the Holloway case on his computer while visiting him in his hotel room. The two met while van der Sloot was in Lima for a poker tournament.

He was caught in a taxi near the Chilean central coastal city of Vina del Mar.

Holloway's body has not been found, and no one has been charged in relation to the case in Aruba.

Natalee's mom to van der Sloot: 'I can't close the book'

In June 2010, a federal grand jury in Alabama indicted van der Sloot after allegations that he tried to extort $250,000 from Holloway's mother, Beth Holloway. Van der Sloot offered to provide what turned out to be bogus information about the whereabouts of Holloway's remains in exchange for the money, according to the indictment.

He was allegedly given $25,000, which authorities say he used to travel to Peru for the poker tournament.

If found guilty of extortion, he could be sentenced to 25 years in prison.

      As good as he is at manipulating the goyim, I was wondering why he wasn't out of prison yet. But now I see. Why would he want to leave when he can have all the hot women he wants brought to him in a private cell?

      I agree!!! I do not understand why a jerk like van der sloot would be allowed any kind of pleasure, for what he has done to those 2 innocent girls. He shouldn't have ANY rights at all. How can the Peruvian court system let this happen?

      Conjugal visits are legal in Peru because those who make the laws know they may get caught and wind up in jail. Who wants to be lonely in jail?

    In the first place, why are prisons allowing inmates to have conjugal visits???? They have no rights whatsoever after what they have done. If they need to do "the deed", let them hook up w/another inmate or do what comes naturally.

      So AnnieM,
      What has this unborn child done to you or for any matter any unborn child to suggest a "mandatory abortion"???
      Are you saying since he 'kill" someone let's kill the unborn child....
      Shouldn't you suggest mandatory sterilization for inmates?
      I will never understand how little people value unborn life, just like it they were talking of getting a haircut...
      Yeah it stinks he can still have kids...but your idea is something you should feel ashame off not only for thinking it but suggesting it....that is not a solution.

    And the wonderful justice systems around the worls protect filth like that. His offspring will probably live off the government as well.
    I just can't imagine how any woman would even want to be in the same room with him, knowing what he did to Ms Flores and what he PROBABLY did to Ms Holloway. Can women really be all that desperate???

    I just hope his/her mother will never say who the real father is. Tell the child that the father died or something. The mother, unfortunately though, does not appear to make good choices.......

      Conjugal visits are nothing more than conveyor belts for fatherless children. I can remember when Texas felons were getting conjugal visits while consenting adult gay men in Texas were fighting in the Supreme Court during "Texas vs. Lawrence" for the freedom to make love in the privacy of their own homes. Conjugal visits for felons shined a giant light on the hypocrisy of our society.
