Believe or not, there is a woman out there who actually wants Ryan O' Neal to be the father of her child. According to Radaronline.com, Jessica Zellars says the 70-year-old trainwreck is her two-month-old son's baby daddy. Zellars maintains that the infant was conceived during a "brief romantic relationship" between she and O'Neal. For the record, O'Neal's adult son Griffin is in jail and Redmond is in rehab, while daughter Tatum is said to be struggling with her drug demons after just completing her own stint in rehab. Even that bloodline isn't enough to deter Zellars from staking her paternity claim against O'Neal. However, O'Neal paints a more insidious picture of the new mom. The Love Story actor tells Radaronline that Zellars is nothing more than a common stalker, "This woman's claim is ridiculous and false. She has been harassing and stalking Ryan. He never had a personal relationship with her. This will be the first time a woman got pregnant without having sex or in-vitro," the Love Story actor's rep says. Meanwhile, Zellars' attorneys are moving forward with their suit. They told Radaronline, "Last week we sent a request for a voluntary paternity test in the form of a court-admissible cheek swab from Mr. O'Neal. He and his lawyers were given the name and address of the medical clinic (which took samples from the mother and child today), and its hours of operation. All Mr. O'Neal has to do is go to the correct facility in the West Los Angeles area and the whole process should take 5-10 minutes. This is a very simple and minimally invasive procedure. The qualified medical and laboratory facilities are ready, willing, and able to take the samples from Mr. O'Neal. The cheek swab would clearly settle the issue of Mr. O'Neal's paternity once and for all."
