The birth certificate of a child who a tabloid newspaper claims is linked to former Sen. John Edwards doesn't identify a father.

The certificate, obtained by The Charlotte Observer today, shows Frances Quinn Hunter was born Feb. 27, more than two months after an Edwards aide claimed to be the father. Andrew Young, a former Edwards campaign finance director, claimed paternity in a statement from his lawyer posted at the political blog

The girl was born at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, Calif., to Rielle Jaya James Druck, also known as Rielle Hunter. Hunter, 44, was a videographer on Edwards' presidential campaign last year.

Asked Thursday why no father was listed on the birth certificate, Hunter's attorney, Robert Gordon of New York, said, “A lot of women do that.”

Oh, don’t read it! You will be so sorry. My head is still spinning....she needs some help. This woman is mentally unstable...I mean this is Glen Close and Michael Douglas...

Poor Elisabeth Edwards. To think that this woman will have some influence over her sweet little kids...I would run off to New Zealand with my kids, if I were her. Place her older daughter as guardian over the little ones, and get away from this space cadet.

I thank the Lord that this man never made it near the White House.

This formerly drugged out party girl IS scary-sad- Liz Edwards could be looking at her children’s future stepmother.

Ahhhh, folks. . .this not naming the father isn't nearly as interesting as it might be. If the father is not present at the hospital during the birth, and the parents aren't married, the hospital staff filling out the paperwork isn't allowed to name the father on the birth certificate. The mother will be given a form that the father can mail in (signed and notarized) and have his name added. This keeps mothers from naming anyone they please as the father, as this is the document that can be used in court to determine child support. Gee, that makes sense, doesn't it? We don't want moms to just name anyone they please on an official document that could make a man legally responsible for child support, without his agreement, would we?
