The disgraced former presidential candidate has another shocking secret: He’s planning on having a second baby with mistress Rielle Hunter!
“Rielle’s biological clock is ticking loudly and she’s desperate to have another baby with John,” a source close to Rielle tells the mag. “She’s not sure what the future holds for John, and that’s what made her even more determined. She wants to get pregnant before the trial begins.”
The source adds, “She’d love to have another sibling for their daughter Quinn. And John, who loves children as much as she does, is on board with the baby plan — and it’s given him even more impetus to win his trial and not go to prison.”
Aside from getting excited “about missing her period,” the former political videographer is preparing for baby #2 by embracing her new soccer mom lifestyle, making friends with other moms, and abstaining from alcohol.
Although Rielle didn’t necessarily help John’s reputation by scandalously posing for GQ in March 2010, she quickly made amends with him and has now been welcomed by his other children, whose mother is the late Elizabeth Edwards, who died from breast cancer in December 2010.
“Rielle is happy that she and John are doing well and that his children have finally embraced her, but she wants a family of her own,” the source says. “She’s in great physical shape, so she’s hoping to get pregnant soon — if she isn’t already.”
The 58-year former senator of South Carolina was indicted last June for trying to cover up their affair using campaign money. If he’s convicted, he faces up to 30 years in prison and $1.5 million in fines. After The Enquirer broke the story about his extramarital affair, he eventually fessed up to being the father of 4-year-old Quinn.
