John Edwards To Admit Fathering Mistress' Child
Edwards has copped to the affair but has denied that he fathered the child, whose name is Frances.
Last week, Hunter testified at the federal courthouse where a grand jury is investigating whether campaign funds were illegally used to buy her silence. Edwards could admit he's the baby's father before the investigation concludes, according to North Carolina CBS affiliate WRAL.
North Carolina CBS affiliate WRAL also reports that longtime Edwards aide Andrew Young (who initially claimed paternity) is now writing a book in which he will say Edwards is the girl's actual father.
In May, John Edwards' wife Elizabeth told Oprah Winfrey she has "no idea" if her husband is the baby's father. Asked about the speculation, Elizabeth said, "I've seen a picture of the baby. I have no idea. It doesn't look like my children, but I don't have any idea."
