The man answered all of her questions honestly. However, he had no idea who the woman was and how the phone call would change his life forever.

After the man lost his job, he looked for similar roles in other organizations, but no one hired him. Since he had to make ends meet, he decided to work as a delivery man for a pizza restaurant.

One day, while returning to the pizza shop after delivering an order, the man heard his phone ring. He pulled it out of his pocket and saw an unknown number flashing on the screen.

He usually didn't answer calls from unknown numbers, but something made him receive this one. He pressed the phone against his ear and waited for the other person to say something.

He heard an unfamiliar feminine voice from the other end. The woman already knew his name and asked him to confirm his identity.

"The young lady on the phone tells me that she is the daughter of the lady she is asking about," he recounted.

When he did, she told him she wanted to discuss something personal with him and proceeded to ask him a few questions about his past.

The man didn't mind answering her questions. She asked him about a woman, his ex, and how he met her. He told her he met her at a military base, and they only dated for a few months before she was stationed at another location.

Later, she moved to her hometown, away from OP's home. He confessed he talked to her a few more times, but she didn't contact him after that time. At this point, the young lady revealed something that would soon impact OP.

The woman further revealed that her mother had passed away a few months back, and after her demise, a family friend suggested she take a DNA test to know her mother's side of the family tree. Excited, the girl took the test and waited for the results.

She did find out a lot about her mother's side of the family. However, the test results also revealed that the man who raised her, her mother's husband, was not her biological father.

The entire family was shocked. They had no idea who her father was for many years because her mother took the secret with her when she passed away.

The girl searched for her father for many years and finally discovered who he was. She told the man that she had called him because he was her father.

The man was shocked. Tears trickled down his cheeks after discovering he had a daughter he had never met. The girl also broke down while telling him she had found her father after many years.

"We talked for a couple of hours and have been in touch every day," OP shared. He also took a DNA test which confirmed that he was indeed her father.

OP was surprised to see that the girl's family was very supportive when they found out about him. They didn't stop her from meeting him. However, he said he could never replace the man who raised her. He praised the man for raising his daughter well.

After talking to the girl's family, he learned more about what happened when he dated the woman. When he met her at the military base, she was already engaged and later married her husband. She cheated on him, but he never found out about it.

The marriage wasn't working, and the man was poised to divorce her when she learned she was pregnant, so she told her husband that she was carrying his child, cutting OP (Original Poster) out of her life. She lied to her husband because she feared he would leave her, and she thought it was the best way to convince him to stay in their marriage.

After learning what happened in the past, the man felt he might be at fault because he left the woman and another man raised his daughter. He wrote a post in the "JUSTNOFAMILY" forum on Reddit, asking other people if he was at fault.

"You didn't know about the fiance, and you didn't know about the pregnancy," Redditor nonstop2nowhere stated to assure OP he was blameless.

The user added that if he abandoned the woman after finding out about the pregnancy, he would have been at fault for not paying child support.

"Congratulations! I just went through this from the other side," Redditor CaffeineFueledLife confessed. She found her father after years of thinking he didn't exist. She said it was an emotional journey.

OP replied that he took many days to recover from the shock. He also felt resentful toward his daughter's mother for not telling him that she was pregnant with his child. He wished he had seen her growing up.

"My mother lied to me about who my father was until I was 26 and found the guy, and he told me the truth," Redditor CaffeineFueledLife shared. She said her mother never even told her about her father's name.

She discovered him by taking an ancestry DNA test. She shared that she also felt resentful toward her mother for keeping her away from the truth.

Most Redditors assured the man he was not at fault because he didn't know about the pregnancy. They also wished him luck in his new relationship with his daughter.

Questions to Ponder:

Do you think the woman should have told OP about the pregnancy?

The man felt his daughter's mother should have told him about the pregnancy because he would have stayed with her and would have loved to raise their daughter. He regretted missing all of her firsts. Do you think the mother owed him the truth?

Do you think the girl deserved to know about her biological father?

The woman didn't tell the man about his daughter because she wanted to stay with her husband. She didn't think how her daughter would feel after discovering that the man who raised her was not her father. Some people might agree that she should have told the girl about her father instead of keeping them away from each other. What do you think?
