LITTLE ROCK (KATV) — Paternity testing has determined that Hunter Biden, the son of presidential candidate and former vice president Joe Biden, is the father of a baby born in Arkansas, according to a court filing.
A motion filed Wednesday in Independence County Circuit Court says that DNA testing has established with "scientific certainty" that the younger Biden fathered the child with Lunden Alexis Roberts. Public records list a Batesville woman, age 28, with the same name.
The motion, filed by Roberts' attorney Clint Lancaster, says that Biden is not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test. The testing was conducted Nov. 8 in Oklahoma City, a separate court filing says.
The motion requests that certain records in the case be sealed to protect the baby's identity.
A hearing is scheduled for December 2nd in Batesville. According to Lancaster, they plan to file a request for temporary child support and records of Biden's income.
Lancaster adds Secret Service is aware of the situation, but he is not requesting detail. He says the role of the Secret Service would be to monitor any threats against the child to keep them safe.
Roberts filed a petition for paternity and child support in May. The suit says that Roberts and Biden were in a relationship and that the child, identified as "Baby Doe," was born in August 2018 as a result of that relationship.
Biden is believed to have been dating his late brother Beau’s widow, Hallie Biden, when Roberts gave birth.
