Hearts are aflutter for hunky The Bachelor star Juan Pablo Galavis as he begins to hand out roses to hopeful wives-to-be, but documents obtained by The National Enquirer expose that the single father who touts his strong relationship with his daughter is actually a deadbeat dad.

According to his official Bachelor bio, Juan Pablo, 32, resigned from his professional soccer career with Miami FC in 2008 after receiving the life-changing news that his then-girlfriend, Latina actress Carla Rodriguez, was pregnant.

But The Enquirer has uncovered court documents that show the blue-eyed heartthrob was ordered by a judge to pay back child support in May 2011 – more than two years after his daughter was born!

The Florida Department of Rev­enue’s Child Support Enforcement Program slapped Juan Pablo with an income deduction order, requiring employers to automatically deduct $243.94 per month for child support, plus $49.00 per month for retroactive child support until the outstanding balance of $3,574.57 was paid.

“Juan Pablo has been hoping that news of his court-ordered child support didn’t get out because he doesn’t want ‘Bach­elor’ fans finding out he’s not the perfect father he portrays himself to be,” a source revealed.
