When Cate Edwards learned that her father, former presidential candidate John Edwards, was cheating on her mother, Elizabeth, she was crushed.
The 31-year-old daughter of the disgraced former U.S. senator adds that he personally admitted to her that he had had an affair with Rielle Hunter.
“I guess he and my mom decided that that was how it needed to be done. So yeah, I was devastated. And I was very disappointed," Edwards said.
"I mean, these are my parents. I had grown up with a lot of love in my family. And it was hard to see them go through this,” Cate said in an interview on Today.
Asked if she was mad, Cate Edwards said, “Yeah, of course.”
