Elizabeth Edwards showed poise and class when talk show host Larry King asked her Wednesday night about a paternity test to determine if her husband, ex-U.S. Senator John Edwards, is the father to the 18-month-old baby of Rielle Hunter, the sexy videographer the handsome politician has acknowledged a past fling with.
“I — my expectation is at some point, something happens,” Elizabeth said of the pending test. “And I hope for the — for the sake of — of this child that — that it happens, you know, in a quiet way.”
The baby, Frances, was born last year, but the ex-presidential candidate had earlier claimed he stopped having sex with Hunter long before the child was conceived.
“We’re getting the children ready for a new school year,” she said. “Everything seems to be going pretty smoothly at my house.”
