You win some, you lose some. An hour after boxing champ Oscar De La Hoya lost a major match-up Saturday in Las Vegas against "Pretty Boy" Floyd Mayweather, his wife, Millie Corretjer, revealed he was going to be a father for the fourth time.

"I think tonight is a good night to tell him," she told the Los Angeles Times before she gave her husband the news. "He has a lot to look forward to now."

This will be De La Hoya's fourth child and his wife's second. The couple welcomed a son, Oscar Gabriel, on Dec. 29, 2005.

De La Hoya, 34, and Corretjer, a 33-year-old Puerto Rican pop singer, were married Oct. 5, 2001. The couple met in 2000, when both were signed to the same record label. (De La Hoya's debut CD that year earned a Grammy nod.)

The boxer has two other children: Jacob, 9, and Atiana, 8, from previous relationships. Atiana's mother is former Dancing with the Stars contestant Shanna Moakler.

Corretjer said this wouldn't be the only big news in the fighter's life – retirement may be in the cards. "I have a feeling this may be it for him," she told the L.A. Times. "I know this because he just told me."
