Mario Balotelli posts adorable picture holding newborn son Lion

Last time we checked on Mario Balotelli, he was burning rubber while racing a mini motorbike around the OGC Nice training campus.

Thankfully, Balotelli's latest social media update is entirely more serene and peaceful.

Good night ❤️ #Father&Son

A post shared by Mario Balotelli🇮🇹🗿👪 (@mb459) on

The 27-year-old Italian striker shared an intimate photo of himself with his newborn son, Lion, cradled in his arms.

Now almost three weeks old, Lion is Balotelli's first child with his girlfriend, known only as Clelia.

Whisper it, but it looks like the former wildchild is finally starting to settle down.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
