I think it's up to the bride, and beyond that, it's nobody's business.
I can also see it being a totally made up story. "Sources say"? The only source it quotes is the National Enquirer, and random Facebook opinions!
As a tangential issue, I really dislike the term "love child." It's kind of a slightly nicer way of calling the child a b******. Neither is fair -- it's not the child's fault.
