Young Guy Finds Out His Father Is Actually His Half-Brother Through The DNA Test, And His Mom Confesses Cheating With An Uncle

Sooner or later, some people can become suspicious of the family bonds they have grown up with. Undoubtedly, the direct and real way to know the truth is the DNA paternity test, whereas the indirect — the DNA ancestry test.

Anybody who has ever watched a daytime talk show knows it may be unpleasant and painful to confront longstanding biases about paternity.

Not a biological father

A Reddit user wrote a shocking story when he found out his dad is not his biological parent. Once, they decided to buy a DNA parenting test from 23andme as a part of the guy's birthday gift.

The results showed only 29.2% DNA sharing with the storyteller, and the father was being predicted to be a half-brother, which seemed impossible for them all.

These results didn't make any sense since both a father and a child also shared a paternal haplogroup, and they just look so alike. So, the young man wrote to the company asking for help.

The shared percentages are accurate and highly unlikely to be false, so the only realistic explanation was that his uncle — his cousin's father and his dad's brother — is his actual father.

Without even thinking, the poor guy rushed to the room and confronted his mother, who later confessed cheating on his so-called dad with the uncle. The storyteller's mum begged to tears not to tell this to the father.

However, everything came to utter chaos that day, and their lives have never been the same since this fateful moment.

People's comments

@Noskcaj96:

Call your dad, make it clear you still see him as your father could really help him out.

@Eat_the_Path:

The only person at fault is your mother and "uncle." She and him are the ones who cheated and lied. You don't need to feel guilty about exposing their guilt. Also, your real dad is the guy who raised you, not the guy whose genes are more similar.

@Konsecration:

Sounds like your mom and uncle destroyed the family. Not you.

@jq_threetwo:

You did nothing wrong, your mom and uncle/biological father screwed up. Instead of coming clean they said nothing for 19 years! I agree w a lot of ppl on here, def let your proper dad know you're still on his team.

@mufflonicus:

You merely discovered your mother's fail. It could probably be delivered more smoothly, but lies are bad foundations for any relationships and whatever comes from this has a causal link with what your mother and your uncle/father did and you shouldn't blame yourself. In the end you probably did your (original?) father a service by revealing the truth.

@tilman2015:

You (and the man you believed to be your father) are the victims of the infidelity and long-term lie undertaken by your mother and your biological father. Your mother had 19 years to come clean but didn't.

@PiggySoup:

Please support the dad who raised you. No matter how you feel or how bad you think the situation is, it's a lot worse for him.

At the end of the day, the young guy confesses he still considers his 'half-brother' as his dad and refuses to accept the painful truth. This is so messed up how one DNA test for $99 can destroy lives forever.
