Father David Dueppen has admitted he is indeed the father, and in this case, not in the priestly sense.
According to CBS4's Jim DeFede, the Catholic priest admits to fathering a child with former stripper Beatrice Hernandez, and now he wants 70 percent custody and demands that the child's last name be changed to his.
Hernandez claims Dueppen told her he'll take the child and flee with the help of the Archdiocese of Miami, but he's in the process of cutting ties with the church.
To make matters more sensational, Dueppen has hired attorney Rarmond Rafool, the same guy who represented Linda Hogan in her divorce from Hulk and then got into a shouting match with the former WWE star outside the courthouse.
