In July 2007, Rielle Hunter says she learned she was pregnant. Though John Edwards said he would support her, “on some level, he was hoping I would get an abortion,” Rielle says. “He wasn’t happy about the timing. Which is understandable. He was married and running for president.”
Rielle says John has been a “sweet” and “very loving” father, adding that their daughter “calls him Da-da. She’s always known who Da-da is. Yeah. She’s never had Da-da missing from her life … He very much wants to be in her life full—time, and he doesn’t want to hide.”
Now that John Edwards and Elizabeth have separated, she says she has “no idea” if they’ll wind up together. “I do know that I will love him and that love is till death do us part, and probably beyond,” Rielle says. “We have a child together, so at the very least we will be co-parents together.”
