Elizabeth Edwards "Relieved" Husband Admits to Fathering Baby

| by Mark Berman

Former presidential candidate John Edwards finally admitted Thursday that he is indeed the father of the child born to mistress Rielle Hunter. Quinn Hunter is now 2-years-old. After repeated denials, Edwards finally came clean in a statement:

"I am Quinn's father. I will do everything in my power to provide her with the love and support she deserves. It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter, and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me."

In an interview with the Associated Press, Edwards' wife Elizabeth said, "the whole family feels relieved" that Edwards made the admission. However, she would not comment on the current state of their marriage.
