Link Report: John Edwards Confesses to Elizabeth: 'It's My Baby' By The Staff at wowOwow.com The National Enquirer, which broke the story of John Edwards’s affair with Rielle Hunter, now reports that the former Senator finally confessed to his wife Elizabeth that he is the father of Hunter’s baby. According to the National Enquirer, Edwards made the admission to his wife for fear that Hunter would go public, and he wanted to beat her to the punch. Hunter reportedly became upset over the prospect of Elizabeth Edwards’s new book, "Resilience: Reflections on the Burden and Gifts of Facing Life’s Adversities," which comes out in May. Said an anonymous source:Rielle has become extremely edgy, and John’s been afraid she might go public before Elizabeth’s book comes out so she can put her story out there first. These concerns led to John telling Rielle that he had sat down with Elizabeth and admitted to being the baby’s father. This is something that Rielle had been pushing John to do for a long, long time because he initially told Elizabeth he was NOT the father. The last thing John wants right now is for Rielle to go public before Elizabeth’s book comes out, makes new headlines and trigger a nasty battle between the two women.Hmmm. We’re not sure who to believe. The National Enquirer was right about the affair, but wouldn’t John have simply fessed up during his original confession, rather than dragging out the scandal?
