The drama concerning Heath Ledger's secret love child continues to a far more interesting level as the woman in question has given an extraordinary interview to a Western Australian newspaper. It is unfortunate though that she declined to answer direct questions about whether Heath was the father of her 11-year-old daughter.
Refused to have her daughter having a DNA test, the unnamed woman insisted, "I'm not answering anything. I think it's very, very rude that I'm being posed all of this. I really do. I can't talk about anything." She, furthermore, said that all she cared about was her daughter's welfare.
"When you are considering an 11-year-old girl who has to go to school and be a part of society, that is my main concern," so she said.
Her husband, on the other hand, did admit that he was not the girl's father, saying "I'm the step-dad, but there's nothing to hide ... and if I asked (the mother) I'm sure that she wouldn't mind (to have a DNA test)."
Addressed the persistent rumors that her daughter was Heath's secret love child, the woman said, "You have no proof, there's no background, there's no grounds, there's no nothing." Her husband, who was very supportive of her, went on adding "I'm not going to answer anything or go into anything at all. The whole thing with that (Heath being the father) is no. No way. No can be. It would probably be a great thing if she was, but no."
Heath Ledger's uncle, Hadyn Ledger, has recently revealed that the late actor may have fathered love child during schoolboy affair with a married woman. Hadyn revealed that matter to the Daily Telegraph, saying that Heath had an affair with an older woman when he was a 17-year-old schoolboy. He allegedly got the then 25-year-old woman pregnant during their secret relationship.
The alleged mother was allegedly living with another man at the time and she reportedly discovered that she was pregnant after split from Heath. And it appeared that the woman brought up the child as her and the other man's child.
Another family member of Heath added, "She had the baby. Everyone lived under the assumption that she was the daughter of the mother's boyfriend and that is how she has been brought up."
