IT was just posted on the BBC. What amazes me is that in this day of aids EITHER of them would have unprotected sex! How stupid!

i am so happy to hear this news. good for albert for finally acting like a responsible adult and good for nicole for fighting for the public recognition of her child. Alexandre will grow up a boy who is proud of both his parents now.

they were in a relationship and i am assuming they both know the other does not have aids. in that sort of relationship, it's not uncommon or shocking that neither used a condom. nicole was on the pill, she missed a day (which again as MANY MANY MANY women know is not uncommon either). I don't think aids was the concern of whoever made the post as obviously aids is not the end result but a BABY, and a beautiful one at that. Let's close that chapter and celebrate the joy is my point.

Yes, I meant how could anyone have sex without a condom--that is stupid; and yes, there is a chance the condom would fail. I don't know why you guys think he's going to be a great father now though--do you really see him taking Alex on vacation with his nieces and nephews? I don't.

It's not going to happen Australian--Stephanie didn't marry the parent of her child, and neither will Albert.

when this story broke, many of you were up in arms and quick to judge nicole as a hussy, a golddigger, a prostitute, some even said she was an "unstable" woman. All these without even knowing much of anything about what REALLY went down between Albert and Nicole
imo i really thought she was a golddigger because when she chose to announce to world about alex. the question still remains why not wait 3 mos.? looseing a parent is hard enought. i cant imagine what is like having the world watch you during such a tragic time. her timing was off and there is no good reason for that. unless u can give me a reason. again my opinion
Quote:
I also mentioned before that not only is Nicole Coste black, but she's African. And an African woman does WHATEVER IT TAKES to make sure her child gets ALL the dignity he/she deserves in life.
im sure every good mother will do whatever it takes to make sure her child grows up in a clean, secure and loving environment. it sound like a narrow view that only african women would do such a thing.
dignity plus dignity will equal dignity but were there is no dignity you cant make it appear. there is no dignity in this situation imo. again this is my opinion
Quote:
wow, i've always stated and i will always keep stating that many of you on here are prejudicist at the very least and racist at the very most.
i can honestly say i am not racist or perjudicist and i just call them as i see them. i was wrong, as i have said before, that i didnt think to highly of nicole and that i had thought to highly of prince albert. i should have waited to hear his part before "speaking" my view on this subject. so i guess i was disillusion with the whole situation.
if you want to know why i say i am not perjudicist or racist email i can tell u some events.

From Gulf Daily News
Vol XXVIII NO. 108 Wednesday 6 July 2005
function NewWin(url) {NewWindow1=window.open(url, 'popUpWindow', 'resizeable=no,width=300,height=410,scrollbars=no,toolbar=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no') }function Print(url) {NewWindow=window.open(url, 'popUpWindow', 'resizeable=yes,width=600,height=450,scrollbars=yes,toolbar=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no') }Albert to go public over 'love child' MONACO: Prince Albert, the ruler of Monaco, is to make his first public statement tomorrow on reports in the European media that he fathered the illegitimate son of a former flight attendant.

The announcement, to come the day after the end of the official mourning period for his father, prince Rainier, is expected to shake the tiny state that has long been a playground of celebrities and the very rich.

According to one French magazine, L'Express, Prince Albert - the son of prince Rainier, who died April 6, and the late US film star Grace Kelly - is to publicly acknowledge he is the father of Alexandre Coste, a baby born in Paris on August 24, 2003 to Nicole Coste, a Togolese woman who also holds French citizenship.

If he does so, the boy will likely receive financial handouts for the rest of his life but will have no chance of one day ruling Monaco, whose constitution requires legitimate lineage for the throne.

The French magazine Paris-Match, followed by other European publications, broke the "love-child" story in May, showing pictures of Prince Albert cradling a baby and carrying affirmations from Nicole Coste that the child was the result of a five-year affair with the prince.

Prince Albert last week won a $60,000 (BD22,680) invasion of privacy lawsuit against Paris-Match, and has promised to go after other magazines and newspapers that printed the allegations. But Coste, 33, said she decided to come forward because "I was afraid Albert would go back on recognising his son.... I had a very strict Catholic upbringing and for me it was a disgrace to not be able to tell my family who is the father of my child.

"I always told Albert that Alexandre would not live hidden away." The Monaco palace, which is preparing for Prince Albert's formal succession ceremony, has refused to make any comment ahead of Prince Albert's scheduled address.

Monaco prince admits love child
Prince Albert II of Monaco has acknowledged that he has had an illegitimate child with a flight attendant from Togo, his lawyer said.

Lawyer Thierry Lacoste said in a statement that the prince, who is not married and has no heir, wanted to face up to his responsibilities.

He said the child, aged 22 months, would not be in line to the throne and would not have the name Grimaldi.

The prince, 47, said he hoped his son could avoid the media spotlight.

Prince Albert's father, Rainier III, died in April aged 81.

Rumours of the prince having a child with former Air France flight attendant Nicole Coste, who is Togolese and holds French citizenship, emerged in some parts of the French media days after Prince Rainier's death.

Ms Coste was quoted as saying she met the prince on a flight in 1997, leading to a relationship and the birth of the boy, Alexandre, in August 2003.

Constitution

In the lawyer's statement, released as the Grimaldi family ends three months of mourning, the prince said he regretted the fact that the press had gone public with the story so close to his father's funeral.

"Prince Albert II asks the press to adopt responsible behaviour, similar to what it has adopted in similar circumstances for other public figures, and to respect his private life and that of the underage child," the statement added.

Prince Albert, often dubbed the "playboy prince", has for years appeared reluctant to get married or start a family, which perhaps prompted his father to change Monaco's constitution in 2002.

Previously, the principality would have become part of France in the absence of a male heir. Rainier had the law changed so that, in the event of Albert remaining childless, Princesses Caroline and Stephanie could follow their brother, who was proclaimed regent during Rainier's last days.

The sisters have seven children between them. Mr Lacoste said the boy would have the same rights to inheritance as any other child of Prince Albert, should he have any others.
