The National Enquirer is reporting that John Edwards asked his baby's mama, Rielle Hunter, to marry him — and that she has said "yes."
Meanwhile, somewhere Elizabeth Edwards is saying "over my dead body" and Dave Matthews, for assistants to hold his calls. Dave Matthews Declines John Edwards' Wedding Gig
Purportedly Edwards' token of love was a luxury $3.5 million beachfront home "where they can live happily ever after with their love child."
A diamond ring will just have to wait until Elizabeth is out of the picture, sources say. Because really, that's the appropriate thing to do, right?
The former Presidential candidate popped the question "at the same time he told Rielle that he'd be issuing a press statement finally confirming he fathered her daughter Frances Quinn." Report: John Edwards Promised Mistress NY Wedding
Per The ENQUIRER:
"John dropped the proposal bomb on Rielle shortly before he issued his statement" that he was indeed Frances' father, a close source divulged.
"John knew Rielle had been waiting for a proposal for two long years. Since they've gotten involved, she's followed every order he gave her, going on a cross-country cover-up, hiding away during her pregnancy and after giving birth for the sake of his presidential aspirations.
"Rielle never uttered a peep about their affair publicly, and remained loyal to John. John felt she deserved to know that he wanted to raise their child together, and wanted Rielle in his life as his partner.
"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."
