UPDATE 11/20/19 8:05pm EST: The Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports that court papers have been filed and that DNA testing determined that Hunter Biden is the father of Lunden Roberts’ child. “DNA testing has established, ‘with scientific certainty,” that Hunter Biden is the father of an Arkansas baby, according to a motion filed Wednesday in Independence County on behalf of the child’s mother, Lunden Alexis Roberts,” the paper reports. The filing also states that Hunter “is not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test or the testing process.” An attorney for Hunter has not responded to the report.

An Arkansas woman, Lunden Alexis Roberts, 28, has filed a paternity and child support lawsuit against Robert Hunter Biden, 49, who she claims is the father of her 10-month-old baby, born in August 2018. HollywoodLife obtained the official legal document [seen below], courtesy of Roberts’ lawyer, Clinton Lancaster. Roberts filed the suit, where she resides, in Independence County, Arkansas on May 28 — nearly two weeks after Hunter reportedly married a South African woman named Melissa Cohen.

“The parties were in a relationship and a child…was born as a result of that relationship,” the filing, which names the child as “Baby Doe,” states. The petition does not reveal how Hunter and Roberts met or how long they were romantically involved. Roberts asks the court to “establish paternity of the child, finding that the defendant is the child’s biological father.” All out-of-pocket expenses would be split between the two parents, the filing says.

Hunter, who is listed in the petition as residing in Annapolis, Maryland, is the son of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, 76. The former Vice President has yet to address the suit. HollywoodLife has reached out to a representative for Hunter Biden, who has not released any official statement about the allegation. We did not receive an immediate reply.

Roberts’ lawyer, Clinton Lancaster has said that she values her privacy. “She really does not want this to be a media spectacle. She does not want this to affect Joe Biden’s campaign. She just wants this baby to get financial support from the baby’s father,” the lawyer told the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.

The birth of the child was in August 2018, according to the petition for paternity and child support, which means that Hunter was in a relationship with Hallie Biden, his late older brother Beau’s wife, at the time. The former in-laws began dating in 2017, and split in April, as reported by Page Six. Beau died from brain cancer in 2015. He was 46.
