This story keeps on getting better and better. John Edwards is reportedly engaged to Rielle Hunter, his mistress and the mother of his love child, reports say.
Two weeks ago, Edwards finally admitted that he is the father of Hunter's two-year-old daughter. Since then, Edwards and wife Elizabeth legally separated.
According to the National Enquirer, who broke the Edwards love child scandal, he proposed to his mistress on the same day he came clean about paternity.
“John dropped the proposal bomb on Rielle shortly before he issued his statement that he was indeed Frances’ father,” a source told the celeb news tabloid.
“Rielle Hunter has been waiting for a proposal for two long years. She deserved to know he wanted to raise their child together, and wanted Rielle in his life."

Will Rielle Hunter become the new Mrs. John Edwards?
“John said that when his divorce is final, he’ll buy her a diamond ring. In the meantime, he’s getting them a house.” A $3.5 million beach house, allegedly.
The Enquirer says that Edwards expects his divorce from his cancer-stricken wife to be completed within a year, paving the way for a marriage to Hunter.
A spokeswoman for John Edwards denied this report, much like his people did numerous times about the affair ... and the love child ... and the coverup.
“It’s absolutely not true,” his spokesman said, adding that Edwards and Hunter “only communicate through a third party,” to work out Edwards visitation.
“Everybody is trying to move on with their lives.”
It's probably not true. But given that Edwards is a deceitful human who lies about everything, he doesn't exactly have a lot of credibility left, does he?
