Uncle Teddy Kennedy Has A Love Child!
That's right folks! The Boston Herald reports that Ted shacked up with a woman, Caroline Bilodeau, back in 1983, who then got pregnant. Ted wanted her to terminate the pregnancy, but she didn't.
“He told her he couldn’t undergo another scandal — not after Chappaquiddick, not so close to his divorce from Joan” said the source. “He was very angry when she defied him and had the child.”
According to the report, Teddy took a paternity test shortly after the child's birth, since then Bilodeau “always seemed to have money.”
