Barnaby Says Baby's Dad Is "Nobody's Business" After Spilling To Every Paper

Labor’s Rebecca White concedes defeat

The former deputy prime minister of Australia who was forced from office for getting an aide pregnant prompted a new row yesterday by suggesting in an interview that he may not be the father.

The flight to Sydney was the first time the couple had been seen together since news broke they were expecting a baby in April - the fifth child and first son for Mr Joyce. He told reporters on Monday at a press conference that anything that is personal in nature is a business between only him and partner Vikki Campion. "So we're not here to be part of some ongoing litany of discussion about this", he said. He said he will raise the child as his own.

The politician also said she felt that Mr Joyce was attempting to bring he National Party down with him.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has dismissed questions about Mr Joyce's comments in the newspaper.

On Sunday, Mr Joyce admitted to Fairfax Media the paternity of Ms Campion's unborn child was a "grey area".

'I would say Barnaby is pretty angry in every direction, particularly with the National Party, ' she told Sunrise.

Further adding to impressions Mr Joyce is the father, his estranged wife Natalie Joyce released a statement soon after the original story, saying she was deeply saddened by the news her husband was "having a child with a former staff member".

One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has said she believed Joyce may have been trying to sabotage the government.

The revelation is the latest twist in a long-running saga that pitted the National Party, the junior partner in Australia's coalition government against its senior ally, the Liberal Party.
