NEW YORK (The New York Daily News) — She might be Eric Garner’s daughter, but she won’t be part of Garner’s family.

The chokehold victim’s widow, Esaw Garner, acknowledged Friday that a 16-month-old girl named Legacy is her husband’s daughter with another woman — but said she wants nothing to do with the tot or her mother, Jewel Miller.

“As far as her being accepted into our family, that’ll never happen,” Garner told the Daily News when asked about the baby.

Eric Garner had been living with Miller for three years before his fatal encounter with Officer Daniel Pantaleo in Staten Island last July.

The News reported Friday that a DNA test recently confirmed Miller’s assertion that Legacy is Garner’s daughter. That puts her in line for the largest share of any payout the Garner family gets from the city.
