The soap opera that is John Edwards' life just got worse. The National Enquirer, which first broke the story of Edwards' affair with Rielle Hunter, has now confirmed through a bevy of anonymous sources that a secret DNA test has proved that he is the father of Hunter's 18-month-old daughter, Frances. Currently, their lawyers are working out child support payments, according to the Enquirer. Edwards, who denied he was the child's father when he confessed his affair on ABC's Nightline last year, has also reportedly informed his cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth of the news. As if that weren't bad enough, Hunter has testified against Edwards before a federal grand jury that's investigating whether Edwards broke campaign finance law by funneling money to Hunter, charges that could land him in jail.
