Quote:
Paraguay's President Fernando Lugo [age 57] has admitted he is the father of a child who was conceived when he was still a Roman Catholic bishop.

Mr Lugo, who took office last August, made a televised address accepting paternity of the one-year-old boy.

He admitted having an intimate relationship with 26-year-old Viviana Carrillo, the child's mother. [...]

He was registered as a bishop until last year when Pope Benedict XVI relieved him from his vows of chastity.

... retroactively?
