Edwards says he's father of campaign worker's child

HADDONFIELD, N.J. - The lawyer for a videographer for former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards says it's "good for everyone" that Edwards has admitted he fathered a child with the woman.
     
New Jersey-based lawyer Michael Critchley says Edwards' confession Thursday that he was the father of Rielle Hunter's nearly 2-year-old daughter amounted a public acknowledgment of something that was known privately.
     
He said Hunter did not have an immediate comment.
     
Edwards' admission comes shortly before a book on the scandal is due out from a former campaign aide who was expected to describe how Edwards worked to hide his paternity.

Elizabeth Edwards: 'Whole family feels relieved'

Elizabeth Edwards says her "whole family feels relieved" now that her husband has come forward to claim paternity of a child he fathered out of wedlock.
     
Elizabeth said in an interview with The Associated Press that she believes John Edwards is also relieved to put the matter behind him. She said she hopes the declaration will help end publicity around the family's matters.
     
She declined to talk about her marital status, saying, "My marriage shouldn't be on anybody's radar screen except mine."
     
Elizabeth Edwards' cancer returned in March 2007 in an incurable form. She said the cancer got worse for a period but has recently been improving, with some signs of tumors shrinking.
     
"You hate to tempt cancer," she says.
