A DNA test confirms that Hunter Biden is the father of a baby in Arkansas that he denied having, says a court first filing
The document, filed Wednesday in Independence County, Arkansas, on behalf of the baby's mother Lunden Alexis Roberts said the DNA test determined Biden was the baby's father "with scientific certainty." [1
In May, Roberts, who said she and Hunter Biden's relationship led to a child born in August 2018, filed a request for paternity and child support and a request for him to pay for child care, according to the Daily Beast .
The history of Biden's relationship is complex. In 2017, he finalized his divorce from Kathleen Biden, his wife of more than 20 years, after she accused him of spending money on drugs and strip clubs.
This year he begins to meet Hallie Biden, the widow of his brother Bow and the mother of his niece and nephew. Page Six reported in April that they had recently separated, meaning the baby was born during their relationship.
To add to the complex situation, he married Melissa Cohen at a surprise wedding this May.
Wednesday's filing deepens in Joe Biden's presidential campaign, saying "he is considered by some to be the most likely to win his party's nomination and challenge President Trump on the 2020 ballot."  It states that members of the Biden family are protected by the US Secret Service, which suggests that the child will also need protection.
