Christian NFL running back Adrian Peterson reportedly fathered another child out of wedlock around the same time he learned he was the father of his son who was allegedly murdered by his mother's boyfriend last week.

The revelation could be a public relations nightmare for the Minnesota Vikings star as he is frequently lauded for his Christian talk but it appears he may be having a little trouble with the Christian walk.

According to TMZ.COM the football star welcomed a baby girl, his fourth child, with a waitress at a popular Minnesota nightclub three months ago.

The report confirmed that the child is living with her mother in Minnesota and the last name listed on her birth certificate is "Peterson".

On the day Peterson's 2-year-old son died, the waitress reportedly posted an emotional message about the boy's death on her Facebook page.

"Today has been a long day finding out my [daughter's] brother passed away and knowing that she never even got to meet him," noted the TMZ report.

Peterson, who is also popularly known as "Purple Jesus," has recently been criticized for basking in the outpouring of love and support for the loss of the son he reportedly met for the first time on the boy's deathbed.

A man who TMZ.COM reports was under the impression that Peterson's son was his own until he discovered differently recently charged that Peterson didn't deserve the type of support he was getting.

"So tired of this poor Adrian Peterson s**t. Let me blow all your minds. The boy who died was my son," noted Bobby Ruffin on Facebook last week.

"Yes A.P. he was the biological father but I raised him and he carried my name. Tyrese Robert Ruffin. I don't blame AP for not really caring cuz him and I both found out recently who the biological father was," he continued.

"AP met my son for the first time yest when my son was already in coma. I was here today when we pulled the plug, not him. He was happily practicing and has no problem playing on Sunday. So yea this isn't all out yet but I'm sick of the poor AP s**t. He didn't know or even meet my son. Sorry for the outburst but put yourself in my place," he said.
