Recent photos suggest that the highest paid athlete in the world, Floyd Mayweather, may have both married and had a child in secret.

Media Takeout published pictures on Tuesday of Mayweather's rumored secret wife, Shantel Jackson, holding a baby in Miami. The woman in the images wears sunglasses and a print bikini on a beach while holding a baby that appears to be less than a 1-year-old. The report stated that Jackson might have been pregnant when she stayed out of the spotlight in 2012 during one of the couple's on-and-off dating periods.

It was first alleged that the couple secretly wed in 2011 when a court document surfaced proving Jackson legally added Mayweather to her last name. The name change was made in a Florida courtroom on June 29, 2011. The petition read, "SHANTEL CHRISTINE hereby changed to SHANTEL CHRISTINE JACKSON MAYWEATHER."

Jackson's court document was leaked the day after Mayweather shared on Instagram a photo of his $41.5 million paycheck following his bout against "Canelo" Saul Alvarez . The image has since been deleted from the social media website.

Mayweather said he was engaged and set to wed Jackson during an interview on the Howard Stern Show back in September. Stern asked the boxer if he had been previously engaged to Jackson but then called it quits.

"No, no, no. I mean that's just the media," Mayweather told the radio host. "Yeah, we still engaged. She's my better half. Miss Jackson. She's cool, she's just my better half."
