Over the past year, there's been much speculation over whether or not John Edwards was the father of Rielle Hunter's baby. Today, the former senator finally confirmed that the rumors are indeed true.

Extra got the inside scoop on Rielle and John's relationship from Rielle herself. In 2007, she said: "He was very real and authentic. He was inspirational to me." They met randomly in a bar and she "hoped the videos [she produced for his campaign] would help change Edwards' image." Though she spent lots of time with Edwards and even accompanied him on a trip to Africa, Hunter then claimed the affair allegations to be "trash, full of lies, not true, completely unfounded and ridiculous."

There’s a child that will grow up knowing his dad denied him. There are children growing up knowing dad lied, and hurt their mom. Affairs are just not worth it, whether you are in the public eye or John or Mary Doe.
