'Vampire Diaries' Star

I Have a Kid!

& My Baby Mama's In Jail

7/8/2013 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0707_Zach-Roerig_cw"The Vampire Diaries" star Zach Roerig is battling his baby mama for sole custody of their kid because she was just sentenced to Federal prison. But more importantly ... who knew he had a kid?

According to legal docs filed in GA court last month, Zach -- who plays regular human Matt Donovan on the show -- has a daughter with a woman named Alanna Turner, born in January 2011.

In the docs, 28-year-old Zach is asking the court to change the current custody arrangement and grant him full custody -- and he has a pretty good reason.

According to Zach, Alanna has been arrested at least three times and is actually incarcerated right now in after she pled guilty in federal court to "various crimes."

He's also asking that his jail-bird baby mama cough up child support -- perhaps a few cartons of Marlboros a month?

Calls to Zach's rep were not returned.

I'm getting so f**cking sick and tired of hearing the phrase, 'baby momma' and 'baby daddy' when referring to a bastard child born out of wedlock.

You want to know why this guy doesn't have custody of his kid? Perhaps it's because he has a POLICE RECORD of his own"\:

Mom clearly isn't in a position to take care of the child. But something tells me that dear old daddy hasn't been all that involved himself. The fact that the child was kept secret and he's demanding child support from someone in prison, cuz that'll work. I suspect he won't be doing the potty training and diaper changing. He either has some girlfriend or a nanny all lined up so he can house the kid and get on with his own life on his own terms.
