I would tell them the truth.  There is no hiding it, it will come out some how and I'd rather explain it to them than have someone else do it.

May God bless this family.  Why do you think children have to look like their parents to be theirs?  I know many children that favor other family members ~ aunts, uncles, cousins, great-grandparents ~ more than they do their parents.  I definitely would not tell a child of the evil conception.  I believe it could harm her mentally especially if other kids find out later.  Can you only imagine the cruelty some kids would impose on her?  Children can be very cruel to each other.  Please pray for guidance in the situation.  I will pray for you.
Have a wonderful day!

YOU DON'T. I don't care what the experts say. If your friend tells her child the truth about who her biological father is she will never be the same. It will mess her head up and she will eventually start to feel dirty and unloved. No matter how much she truly is loved it will not feel that way. I highly recommend NOT telling her the truth. But then I am not the "expert".
