Brynne Edelsten 'aware of husband Geoffrey's secret love child'

Brynne Edelsten always knew that her husband Geoffrey had fathered a secret love child, it has been reported.

Australian medical entrepreneur Geoffrey, who married former Dancing with the Stars contestant Brynne in 2009, was alleged to be the father of 22-year-old Sydney man Matthew Beard by his ex-wife Leanne Edelsten earlier this week.

Leanne said that Geoffrey got former patient Isabel Beard pregnant in 1989 and took a paternity test in 1994 that proved he was 99.7% likely to be the boy's father. She also claimed that Brynne had no idea of Matthew's existence and would be shocked by the news.

The Edelstens' spokesperson John Scott has now told The Daily Telegraph: "Brynne and Geoffrey have no secrets. They are well and truly aware of each other's past[s]."

It has been reported that Isabel was depressed as a result of two miscarriages at the time when she met Geoffrey, who was then a GP. In a 1994 interview, she said that she broke down crying in his office and he "more or less" asked her out.

"There were no stars or anything like that," she was quoted as saying. "I was very, very scared and very guilty. It's something I have regretted since the day it happened."

Geoffrey said of the allegations earlier this week: "I have absolutely no comment - this is a deeply private matter."
