The birth certificate of a baby girl born to Rielle Hunter on February 27 - a baby the National Enquirer claims is the love child former Democratic Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina - doesn't identify the child's father.
The document, obtained through a routine records request, shows that Frances Quinn Hunter was born to Rielle Hunter, a former Edwards campaign staffer.
But the space for the name of the father is blank, although the child was born more than two months after Hunter identified Andrew Young, Edwards' campaign finance director, as the father of her then-unborn child.
Young claimed paternity in a statement from his lawyer in what some celeb news sources hypothesized was an effort to cover for John Edwards.
The birth certificate shows the girl was born at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, Calif., to Rielle Jaya James Druck, also known as Rielle Hunter.
With unmarried couples, California law requires parents sign a "Declaration of Paternity" form before the father's name is put on the birth certificate.
If the father isn't present, his name may be added to the birth certificate later, after proper forms are obtained from the Department of Vital Records.
