A man has revealed how he accidentally managed to uncover a secret that has been present in his girlfriend’s family for 30 years.
As the anonymous man claimed in his Reddit post, he ordered an ancestry test as a Christmas gift for his girlfriend’s family only to expose a shocking truth.
According to the man, his partner’s parents loved the idea until the results came back and shook up the family.
“When she finally got the results she was looking through the health section first. Everything looked good. Then she gets to the family section. Grandma – check, grandpa – check, mom – check, half-sister – che…. wait what?!” the man wrote.
“She looks up the half the sister, and she does not recognize her but recognizes a few people in her circle. She looks up her father and gets his name. (She’s from a real small town) confused she calls up her mom and puts her on speaker in our room.”
As the man added, his girlfriend confronted her mother about the names on the list only to learn the bitter truth that her father was in fact not her biological father and that she has a half-sister.
“Do you know a John Smith?” the girlfriend allegedly asked her mother who initially laughed upon the idea of her daughter having a half-sister.
“The phone became dead silent. In an extremely serious tone her mom responds ‘what about him,’” the man wrote in his post.
“My girlfriend then explains that she’s on ‘23 and Me’ and for some reason it’s saying she has a half-sister and John is her father. There was what felt like five minutes of complete silence.
“Her mom finally broke the silence and in an icy tone said ‘have you said anything to your father?’ My girlfriend responded ‘no, I called you first. I figured you might know.’ Another few moments of eerie silence pass. Her mom broke the silence with a sigh.”
The mother then allegedly revealed she had an affair with John when she and her partner were on a break for a weekend thirty years ago.
“So apparently her mom and dad had ‘taken a break’ for a weekend, and she hooked up with her ex-boyfriend (John), then got back with my girlfriend’s dad a couple of days later,” the man explained.
“When she found out she was pregnant and they dated a possible time frame for conception. She knew it was probably not her husband’s.
“She’s kept this secret for 30 years. She told my girlfriend to keep this secret. My girlfriend doesn’t know what to do now and I’m just sitting here shaking my head at the audacity of her mom.”
