I found out my dad was another man when my brother bought me an ancestry test – and even my mum didn’t know the truth

A WOMAN has revealed how she discovered the man she called dad was not her biological father – and even her mum wasn’t aware.

Katy Mae Snow, from the US, made the discovery after her brother bought her an ancestry test.

She posted the saga on TikTok, revealing that she has now gone on to meet her real father.

Speaking in the video, she says: “A few months ago my lovely brother got me one of those ancestry genealogy tests.

“And because my father is adopted and mother doesn’t know her real father, I thought it was really cool to figure out my genealogy, figure out some medical issues I don’t know about.”

The results brought Katy the shock of a lifetime.

“At 7am this morning I got my results back, and there are a lot more questions than answers,” she said.

Sharing her results on screen, she continued: “The first thing I saw is this. That’s my mum, cool beans.”

But then she scrolled down. “Then I saw this. Supposedly this is my father. And that’s a surprise to me because I always thought my father was my father.

“But after speaking to my mother and father nope. Willie Williams is my dad.”

She rang her mum first to find out why the DNA test results were so unexpected.

“I called my mother and asked, ‘Is there any chance dad’s not my dad?” she explained.

Her mum initially balked at the question, feigning ignorance, but Katy asked her to be honest.

“Finally she said yes. My parents broke up just before my mum found out she was pregnant with me.

“Apparently they were sleeping together though and my mum was sleeping with another guy as well.”

So yesterday I met my Bio dad and my little sister. 2 weeks ago if you told me that my dad wasn’t my dad. And that this man was. I would have never believed it. But because of @ancestry I figured out that my life is a lot crazier than I thought lol and that I had a bio dad and a dad who raised me. It was a very emotional, but amazingly fun day yesterday and I’m so happy that I have more people to call my family.

Katy’s mum was a recovering addict and had a three-year-old son. She was living in a sober living house with her toddler when she met Willie.

“He brought her to narcotics anonymous meetings,” Katy explained.

“It was very short lived. My parents were only broken up for a short while.”

Then her mum found out she was pregnant. “She really hoped it was my dad, she knew there was a possibility Willie was my dad.”

Katy’s mum didn’t know what to do. As part of narcotics anonymous she kept a journal, and one day she left the page where she revealed everything open on the coffee table.

Katy’s dad was shocked, but in the end made a noble decision.

She said: “They talked about it. My dad said no matter what, I was his kid. He never asked for a DNA test. I guess it wasn’t an option or a poor family in the 90s.”

Since the test results, Katy met her dad and her younger sister, Melody. They spent the day at the zoo together, getting to know each other.

“Initially it was awkward, all of us there in the parking lot. It was the first time meeting,” Katy said.

“But then Melody and I just clicked like we’d been siblings our whole lives. It was magical.”

Katy said Willie’s choice to meet at the zoo was clever. “It gave us lots of distractions in case we couldn’t spark up a conversation on our own. But we didn’t need it. The conversation flowed.”

And they discovered they have a lot in common. “We all love conspiracy theories. We all agree the reason there’s a missing link in our evolution is that aliens came and mated with us,” she said, seeming to be only half joking about the aliens.

After the zoo, they went to a local park reserve and talked more.

“Willie told me about his addictions and getting sober. He said he wasn’t a very good father to Melody.”

He also told Katy that had he known about her, he would have tried to be a dad to her.

“Because of his addictions, he said he might not have been a good one.”

The new little family is planning to meet again, this time near Melody and Willie’s home.
