"Both the baby and Veronica (Ojeda, Maradona's former partner) are in good health, they are doing very well and are accompanied by the mother's sister and her family," lawyer Jorge Auruccio told journalists outside the clinic.

Auruccio said that the baby, named Diego Fernando, was born at 11:57 pm local time on Wednesday (0257 GMT Thursday) and weighed 3.2 kg (7lbs).
