Woman Who Said Herschel Walker Paid for Abortion Is Also Mother of His Child, Report Says


ATLANTA — The lady who told The Each day Beast on Monday that Herschel Walker had paid for her abortion in 2009 told the outlet on Wednesday that she was the mother of one among his children, undercutting his defense that he didn’t know her identity.

Mr. Walker, the Republican nominee for Senate in Georgia, had swiftly denounced the unique Each day Beast article, denying its veracity and pledging to sue the outlet for defamation. Thus far, the campaign has not pursued any legal motion.

When asked earlier Wednesday by Brian Kilmeade of Fox News whether he knew the lady’s identity, Mr. Walker said “in no way.”

“It’s form of like everyone seems to be anonymous, everyone seems to be leaking. They need you to admit to something you might have no clue about,” he said of Democrats and reporters. “However it just shows how desperate they’re at once.”

The lady, who told The Each day Beast she wished to stay anonymous to preserve her privacy and that of her child with Mr. Walker, provided the outlet with a replica of the receipt from the abortion clinic, a $700 check and a “recover soon” card signed by Mr. Walker. The article features a photo of the cardboard with what it said was Mr. Walker’s signature.

The lady told The Each day Beast she was moved to say more about her relationship with Mr. Walker and the kid that they had together after he said he didn’t know her identity. The Latest York Times has not been capable of independently confirm The Each day Beast’s reporting.

Representatives for Mr. Walker’s campaign didn’t reply to a request for comment. “As I even have already said, there isn’t any truth to this or some other Each day Beast report,” Mr. Walker said in a temporary statement released late Wednesday evening.

Since starting his campaign in 2021, Mr. Walker has contended with a flurry of reports scrutinizing his personal and skilled life. Mr. Walker, a former University of Georgia football star, has lied about and exaggerated his business dealings, and he didn’t disclose three children from previous relationships that he didn’t mention publicly.

More recently, Democrats have put Mr. Walker’s history of domestic violence at the middle of their campaign message. One television commercial from a Democratic-aligned group, Georgia Honor, shows footage of Mr. Walker’s ex-wife, Cindy Grossman, detailing a moment when he held a gun to her temple and threatened to kill her, calling the episode “not an isolated incident.” The spot has been running in Georgia’s largest media markets for every week.
