Elizabeth Edwards Wants John Edwards-Rielle Hunter DNA Test to Take Place Quietly

by at . Comments

Amid reports that two-time presidential hopeful John Edwards is getting ready to announce and admit paternity of former mistress Rielle Hunter's 18-month-old daughter, Elizabeth Edwards says she expects a DNA test will take place.

During a Wednesday appearance with CNN's Larry King to debate health care reform, Elizabeth was asked about DNA testing of the child of Rielle Hunter.

"My expectation is that, at some point, something happens," she said. "And I hope for the sake of this child that it happens, you know, in a quiet way."

Numerous reports, including some from actual news sources, say a DNA test already proved Edwards is the father. Rumors that his admission of paternity is forthcoming have arisen amid a grand jury inquiry into Edwards' campaign finances.

In any case, Elizabeth Edwards says things are quiet around her house, contrary to gossip and speculation regarding her moving out in a fit of rage.

Despite a National Enquirer cover story this week that claims she recently packed her bags in anger over John's alleged decision to move Hunter and their love child into a home near his North Carolina beach house, Elizabeth Edwards told King:

"Things are actually going fine. We're getting the children ready for their new school year. Everything seems to be going pretty smoothly at my house."

As for her health, Elizabeth, who was diagnosed in early 2007 (right around when John probably knocked up Rielle) with incurable breast cancer, says:

"The numbers don't look that optimistic, but I feel good. And I've had recent tests that show me to be in pretty good health, all things considered."

And, she added, "I'm still out here fighting."

John Edwards Quotes

I am and have been willing to take any test necessary to establish the fact that I am not the father of any baby, and I am truly hopeful that a test will be done so this fact can be definitively established.

John Edwards

In 2006, I made a serious error in judgment and conducted myself in a way that was disloyal to my family and to my core beliefs.
