A third woman has claimed that Fernando Lugo, the Paraguayan president (photo, from bbc.co.uk), fathered her child.
Only a few days ago, another woman said Mr Lugo, who is a former bishop, was the father of her six-year-old boy.
Though the president has not acknowledged paternity in those recent cases, two weeks ago he said he fathered a child.
The Paraguayan president was released for his vows of chastity by the Pope last July, two years after he renounced the priesthood.
According to the third woman, she too had a close relationship with president Lugo and the boy he fathered is now 14 months old.
Two weeks ago, when president Lugo had to backtrack on previous denials and admit he was the father of a child who will be two next month, he found himself in a delicate situation.
Rogelio Livieres, a Paraguayan Roman Catholic bishop, has called for Mr Lugo’s resignation, while opposition politicians have seized on the scandal, because the president ran on a campaign of honesty and returning power to the people.
According to BBC’s Gary Duffy, even though some see the president’s popularity wavering, in the deeply macho society of Paraguay, so far the controversy has caused only limited damage to Mr Lugo.
The Paraguayan president has not commented on the latest allegations, but has cancelled his trip to Washington, which was regarded as important and was due to start on Friday.
