If Danielle King is John Edward’s new girlfriend, she is really doing well with winning his kids over, especially Jack. Jack, who is friends with her son Austin from a previous relationship, had to write an essay about who was his hero and why. He choose Danielle. In a beautiful essay, he gave his reasons and here are a few: She spends time with him and is a great person to talk to. She helps his family and is very giving of her time. She’s there when John needs someone to watch his kids while he’s away. She’s there when they need her.
Danielle who is 35, has nine sisters and lives in Chapel Hill North Carolina. She was born in Middletown Connecticut. She is presently working at Duke University Cancer Center as a research coordinator, and is also attending Duke Physicians Assistant School.
She and John were recently seen at Panzanella, an Italian restaurant in Carrboro N.C. It seems they’ve been dating for over a year. She has become a fixture at the Edwards’ home and goes with them on trips to their beach house.
John Edwards broke up with his mistress and mother of his daughter Quinn, when Rielle wrote a tell all book. His affair with Rielle took place during his wife Elizabeth’s battle with cancer. Elizabeth passed away in 2010. Last month Rielle published an apology for her part in the affair and her behavior after.
Danielle seems to be a welcome change in John’s life and that of his children. They need to have a maternal figure and Danielle seems to fit the bill.
