Dennis Rodman may have just revealed North Korea's biggest secret, telling The Sun that Kim Jong Un is a father.

The former NBA star confirmed what many have long suspected in an interview about his trip to Pyongyang last month.

“She kept talking about their beautiful baby daughter," Rodman told the tabloid, referring to Kim Jong Un's wife, Ri Sol Ju. 

While North Korea has never confirmed the news, South Korean intelligence services claim that Ri gave birth late last year.

Adding fuel to the fire, Ri disappeared from the public eye for several months in 2012, and appeared to sport what looked like a baby bump in several pictures, according to Business Insider.

The 23-year-old former singer was revealed to the world as Kim's wife in July.

The Guardian has gone so far as to dub her "the communist Kate Middleton."
