John Edwards Love Child Update

JOHN EDWARDS LOVE CHILD UPDATE….John Edwards tells Bob Woodruff of ABC News that:

  • He did have an affair with Rielle Hunter, despite his loud and repeated denials during the primary campaign.

  • He did visit Hunter at the Beverly Hills Hilton last month, as reported in the National Enquirer.

  • Elizabeth Edwards “became aware” of the affair in 2006, but did not know about the July meeting with Hunter at the Hilton.

  • However, he is not the father of Hunter’s baby. He hasn’t taken a paternity test, he says, but he claims that the affair ended too soon for him to have been the father.
