Former Senator John Edwards is not engaged to his babymama, Rielle Hunter.
"It's not true," a friend of the Edwards family told People.com, negating a recent tabloid report saying Edwards had proposed to Hunter over the holidays.
Edwards has yet to confirm or deny if he and Hunter are together, but a source close to the former presidential candidate told People if there is a relationship, its only focus is in parenting their love child, Frances Quinn, who turns 3 in February.
"The nature of the relationship, as far as I know, is one of a father calling the mother and talking about Quinn, figuring out the holiday schedule," the source said.
Edwards' estranged wife, Elizabeth, died last month after a long battle with breast cancer.
The latest rumor says former Senator John Edwards has proposed to babymama Rielle Hunter, a month following the breast cancer death of his wife, Elizabeth Edwards.
Over the holidays, John allegedly introduced two of his children -- Jack, 10, and Emma, 12 -- to Hunter and their love child, Frances Quinn, 2, and Hunter requested they call her "mommy," reports the National Enquirer.
A source said, "This is absolutely the last thing in the world Elizabeth wanted before she lost her courageous battle with breast cancer. She never wanted her children anywhere near that woman!"
Following the death of Elizabeth Edwards last week, her friend, First Lady of California Maria Shriver, opened up to "Extra" about her heroic pal.
"For me Elizabeth Edwards is and always will be a warrior, someone who wanted to make the country better and who watched out for her family in the process," said Shriver when we caught up with her in Sacramento.
As those closest to her gathered to pay their respects, Elizabeth Edwards was laid to rest in Edenton, N.C., Saturday.
The funeral for Edwards, who died on Dec. 7 of breast cancer, was held at Edenton Street United Methodist Church. Her eldest daughter, Cate, 28, gave an emotional eulogy, as did longtime family friends Hargrave McElroy and Glenn Bergenfield, People.com reports.
Edwards apparently didn't make any plans for her funeral, leaving the family scrambling to make arrangements. "There was nothing," an astounded friend told People. "I think she was just too focused on living, so why does she want to plan her funeral? I think it's also the ultimate ego-less act and classic Elizabeth - she just didn't care about the ceremonial."
The Edenton church was the same place Elizabeth and John Edwards held services for their 16-year-old son, Wade, who died in a tragic car accident in 1996.
Elizabeth "remains the heart of this family," the Edwards family said in an earlier statement. "We love her and will never know anyone more inspiring or full of life."
Former Senator John Edwards has moved back into his and Elizabeth's family home to raise their two young children, Emma, 12, and son Jack, 10.
Elizabeth Edwards had asked John to leave when his affair became public, but maintained a cordial relationship with him so their children could benefit. "They'll need to have a good relationship with their father," Elizabeth once told Larry King. "That's enormously important to me. He's been a great father to them in a lot of ways."
HollywoodLife.com reporter Bonnie Fuller believes Elizabeth was already planning for inevitable death. "I think what she was trying to do was think ahead for her children," Fuller told "Extra."
Fuller also said she thinks John has been seeing his former mistress Rielle Hunter. "He of course is in contact with her because they have a young daughter, Quinn. There are sources saying that Rielle is hopeful that she and John will get married."
The Westboro Baptist Church, known for anti-homosexual protests that have included noisy protests at military funerals, has now targeted the memorial service for Elizabeth Edwards for their next unfortunate action.
The funeral will take place in Raleigh, N.C., at the Edenton Street United Methodist Church on Saturday, Dec. 11.
According to the church's website, no reason is given as to why they are protesting at Edwards funeral, but the group regularly disrupts unrelated funerals -- for which they have been successfully sued.
"Extra's" Lauren Sanchez talked with Elizabeth Edwards at the Stand Up to Cancer event in September, where Edwards showed her optimism and strength in dealing with the disease that claimed her life on Tuesday.
"If cancer decides to take me, I'm going to own the days between now and then," Edwards told Sanchez. "Every day that you are alive, you are a survivor."
