Former Senator John Edwards has released a statement this morning admitting he is the father of his former mistress Rielle Hunter's baby, Frances Quinn Hunter:
"I am Quinn’s father. I will do everything in my power to provide her with the love and support she deserves. I have been able to spend time with her during the past year and trust that future efforts to show her the love and affection she deserves can be done privately and in peace.
It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me. I have been providing financial support for Quinn and will continue to provide for her in the future. To all those I have disappointed and hurt, these words will never be enough, but I am truly sorry."
-John R. Edwards
