Source: John Edwards is Rielle Hunter's Baby Daddy

by at . Comments

John Edwards is the father of Rielle Hunter's child.

So says Fox and WRAL News in Raleigh, N.C. If you don't believe those news outlets, are you going to bet against the National Enquirer and Washington Post?

You may scoff. But the Enquirer, after all, was the source that broke the Rielle Hunter story in 2007 and 2008, and it has been right every step of the way.

Even the Washington Post says he's the daddy at this point, reporting Saturday that medical evidence shows Edwards fathered the baby he denies is his.

"Multiple sources confirm the bombshell development, and reveal that lawyers for the disgraced presidential candidate are privately hammering out child support payments with his former lover Rielle Hunter," says the Enquirer's report.

"John Edwards - who hotly denied he was the child's father when he publicly confessed his affair with Rielle on ABC's Nightline a year ago - has broken the news to his cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth Edwards, sources say."

Hopefully Motel 6 offers good monthly rates, John. Sources say Edwards will admit paternity soon in some public manner. That ought to be something.

Rielle

John Edwards and Rielle Hunter are totally parents!

With his paternity over Frances Quinn Hunter all but established, the debate now shifts to whether anyone cares. John is already washed up politically, having cheated on his terminally ill wife and knocked up a weird videographer.

That's bad, even as political sex scandals go, so there was really no coming back from it for him, and most people assumed the kid was probably his anyway.

But Edwards is etching his legacy in the annals of the country's greatest hypocrites. He lied and denied the affair with Rielle Hunter. He then acknowledged it when he had no choice, but denied the kid was his. That was a lie too.

A lot of people believed in the guy and his "two Americas" message. Imagine the Democrats' plight if he had won Iowa in 2008 instead of finishing second.

Politicians, like the rest of us, are flawed human beings, and perhaps they should not be placed on a pedestal. But one has to wonder about the judgment and character involved in hooking up with a woman who is filming web videos for you.

And allegedly paying her hush money out of your campaign funds.

The cumulative effect is to chip away at public confidence in all elected officials, which is a shame. If Edwards wants to salvage an ounce of credibility, he should come clean about his relationship with Rielle Hunter and put this to rest.

This is a ugly woman, outside and inside. She looks like Camilla Parker-Bowles, of England. She is hard on the eyes, Johnny was a damn fool.

To CM - I agree with Marilyn...god forbid Elizabeth Edwards gained a few pounds over the years, mourned the loss of your teenage son, had a few more kids when approaching 50 all the while dealing with a philandering cheater husband - oh and I almost forgot, battling stage 4 breast cancer...ALL IN THE MEDIA SPOTLIGHT! Give me a break...something tells me you have never been married or been divorced several times...look beyond the mirror...PLEASE!!!

CM - Your statement regarding Elizabeth letting herself get run down in appearance is pathetic - how shallow of you! I'm guessing you are the typically male - blaming the wife for the lack of keeping herself physically in shape. I can talk from experience - it's easy to let yourself go - mothers always put their children and spouse first. Men always think of themselves first.

Let us not forget...he is a Democrat. After all, every fault or flaw in a politician that is not a Democrat has been preceeded by the party affiliation.

No big surprise. If you look at pics of that baby it looks like a mini-me of John Edwards. The baby is darling. Too bad it has a coward and a cheat for a dad. These politicans seem to think they can shtup anyone who comes their way and then lie about it with no consequences. Sorry boys, the days of the press covering up your dalliances are over. The one benefit of the rise of sensationalist journalism is that it's outing these creeps and holding them accountable.

It's not my busy but he really should divorce Elizabeth. Perhaps he would have been happy with Riele but probably they cannot survive the situation as a couple either. It is sad that Elizabeth is ill. But many years ago I felt she had let herself run down in appearance, particularly for being married to such a handsome man. She was beautiful as he is when they married. We can never take our relationships for granted.

HE'S A MAN..THEY'RE ALL THE SAME. PLAY AROUND ,GET CAUGHT, DENY, DENY, DENY. THERE'S NOT A MAN IN THIS WORLD THAT WON'T HOP IN THE SACK IF HE GETS THE CHANCE, AND I MIGHT ADD, SHE DOESN'T LOOK TOO SPECIAL TO ME SO I HOPE SHE WAS WORTH IT. I FEEL BAD FOR THE WIFE WHO STANDS BY HER MAN,CONTINUES TO DEFEND HIM AND THEN FINDS OUT WHAT A SCHMUCK HE'S BEEN ALL ALONG. DUMP HIM, NOW WHILE YOU STILL HAVE SOME SELF RESPECT!!!

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.
