According to the National Enquirer, former presidential candidate John Edwards has proposed to his mistress Rielle Hunter. The couple, along with their love child, plan on moving to a recently purchased $3.5 million beachfront home.
According to Edwards' former campaign aide Andrew Young (who's recent book The Politician contained a string of revelations about the dissolution of the Edwards' marriage, including a possible sex-tape), Edwards and Hunter have been seeing each other consistently for years. During a recent interview on Fox News, Hannity asked Young when Edwards "had stopp[ed] seeing Hunter... or has he?"
"I don't think he has," Young responded.
News of the proposal followed a press statement from Edwards confirming that he was the father of Hunter's child, Frances Quinn. A source told the Enquirer: "John dropped the proposal bomb on Rielle shortly before he issued his statement.... John has said that when his divorce is final, he'll buy her a diamond ring. But in the meantime, he's getting them a house." Another source told the Enquirer that Hunter accepted.
