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.

      perbasnec;

      He is a sensible, intelligent person, that's what. It is nothing but perversion that a woman (or man) would be attracted to such a monster. Second, conjugal visits,.... what the H for? Do we really want this guys dna to go on? Regardless of the social anthropologist craze, it turns out that genetics are better than a 70% predictor of personality.

      PB it is disgusting so either you're an ex-inmate jealous of this pig's conjugal visits or you're one of the pathetic women in this world who want a man so bad they'll take a prisoner convicted of murder. Which is it?

      he he a lot of women are speaking out .. yeah, she did what they would like to have the courage to do, but never will be able to dare. By the way, ignorant stupid teenager ... what makes you think the baby will grow to be a killer? What, you have discovered a genetic link about murders, but you have not published yet your scientific research?

      Where is the principle of not having the children pay for the father's mistakes gone? Oh wait I keep forgetting, I am deal with stupid teenager here

    CNN – Your web editors make me want to puke. Your homepage link says "VanderSloot to Be A Daddy!" Wow. How cute. How adorable. No... actually, how disgusting – the way your editors playfully worded that. Fire them; They are sociopaths.

      Now it reads "to be a father behind bars". Does that mean he gets to play pat a cake with the kid in prison?

      I agree Jim. CNN, loose the National Enquirer salaciousness.

    Maybe he'll have a little girl, grow a heart, and tell us what he did with Holloway. How would he feel if someone killed his child. He's a monster though – so I'm not expecting much.

    Just how was he allowed an unsupervised visit with a female he is NOT married to? I thought he was being held in segregation with other high profile inmantes. Sounds like one of the guard was paid off so Joran could enjoy himself once again at the expense of another female who was a willing participant to his "charms".
    Sad to say this baby wll have to live knowing it's father's background.

    If a guy's good looking enough, it doesnt matter if he's a known woman-beater or even killer, he gets girls. Look at OJ Simpson, Chris Brown, Van Der Sloot, etc.

      I wonder how Joran will pay child support. It doesn't seem right that the honest good taxpayers of Peru get stuck with the bill for raising a child born of a brief prison visitation. Isn't that tens of thousands of dollars?
