Former Democratic Senator and Presidential candidate John Edwards will finally admit he fathered the daughter of his admitted former mistress, unidentified sources tell a Raleigh TV station.
WRAL-TV cited sources Friday, reporting the man who won the Vice Presidential nomination in 2004 and ran briefly for President in 2008 before dropping out of the Democratic primary race will admit he is the fater of the 18-month-old daughter of former campaign videographer Rielle Hunter.
Edwards, 56, admitted to having an affair with Hunter but repeatedly claimed he was not the father of her child. The birth certificate does not name a father.
Edwards aide Andrew Young, who claimed paternity of the infant, will name Edwards as the child’s real father in a an upcoming new book, the TV report said.
