The wife of philandering former Sen. John Edwards said she expects a paternity test will take place soon to determine the father of the 18-month-old child of her hubby's former mistress.

In an interview on CNN's "Larry King Live," Elizabeth Edwards confronted rumors that her cheating husband was set to claim paternity of little Frances, his alleged love child with ex-mistress Rielle Hunter.

When asked about testing the paternity of the baby, Edwards said her "expectation is that, at some point, something happens. And I hope for the sake of this child that it happens, you know, in a quiet way."

Edwards, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2007, has said in the past she has seen a picture of the baby girl but had "no idea" whether her husband is the father of Hunter's child.
