Hunter Biden is the father of an Arkansas woman’s baby, according to a paternity test detailed in court papers filed Wednesday.
“DNA testing has established with scientific certainty defendant is the father of the plaintiff’s child,” said the lawsuit filed by Lunden Alexis Roberts, 28.
Ms. Roberts in May filed a petition for paternity support against Mr. Biden, son of 2020 Democratic presidential frontrunner and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden.
The younger Biden is “not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test or the testing process,” the filing said.
The court filing also notes that members of the Biden family are eligible for U.S. Secret Service protection because of the elder Biden’s political aspirations.
“Baby Doe’s paternal grandfather, Joe Biden, is seeking the nomination for the Democratic Party for President of the United States of America. He is considered by some to be the person most likely to win his party’s nomination and challenge President Trump on the ballot in 2020,” the filing says.
Hunter Biden had long denied he was the father of the baby, who was born in August 2018. In October, he agreed to take a paternity test to prove he did not father the child.
Ms. Roberts file the lawsuit against Hunter Biden seeking child support and health insurance for the toddler.
Hunter Biden, 49, married Melissa Cohen mere weeks before the petition was filed. The child’s birth coincided with Hunter Biden’s relationship with Hallie Biden, the widow of late brother, Beau Biden.
Hunter Biden has three children from his marriage to Kathleen Buhle. That marriage ended in divorce in 2017.
