Star Chicago Bears Linebacker is baby's dad

David Haugh, of the Chicago Tribune, reports that Tyna Robertson, who gave birth to the Chicago Bears star middle linebacker Brian Urlacher's son three months ago, has agreed in court that the Bears star is the baby's father. And the boy can use Urlacher's last name, both sides agreed Friday. But other issues involving visitation and child support were not resolved during a court hearing. . . .  Robertson, 33, is the same woman who sued dancer Michael Flatley for $35 million in March 2003, saying he had raped her, and accused a Naperville, Illinois doctor of inappropriate touching in a story she later recanted. Reporter Cindy Wojdyla Cain of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Urlacher's court appearance drew several curiosity seekers, including a county judge who also waited to get an autograph for her teenage son.
