Asking fans and the media to "please allow this situation to remain private," Chris Cagle issued a press release Tuesday (Oct. 4) acknowledging he is not the biological father of his girlfriend's baby. Tammy Wheeler recently gave birth to a son. "As many of you are aware, I had been anxiously awaiting the addition of a new baby to my life," Cagle said in a written statement issued by his publicist and posted on his official Web site. "The baby has been born, and both mother and child are in good health. Since the birth, however, we have discovered that, biologically, the child is not mine." He added, "As excited as I was about becoming a new father, my disappointment now is equally as strong. So out of respect for all that are involved, please allow this situation to remain private and know that I will not be commenting further on this very personal matter. I'm thanking you in advance for your kind cooperation and understanding."
