The couple stopped trying for a baby after discovering the man was sterile. One day, the woman found out she was pregnant, and they considered it a miracle. However, things took a different turn when the man carefully looked at his daughter.
Even the doctors said it was a "miracle baby" after declaring her pregnant because they believed her fiancé was sterile. The couple was over the moon because they had longed for a baby.
However, things took a different turn days after their daughter was born. The man started to sense something fishy when he looked at his baby closely.
The 31-year-old man opened up about his intimate relationship with his fiancée on Reddit. He revealed that he was shocked when his fiancée thought she was pregnant because the doctors said he was sterile.
After getting the fiancée's bloodwork done, doctors confirmed the pregnancy. It was an unbelievable moment for the couple because they had been trying for a baby for years, and nothing had worked. Original Poster (OP) recalled:

OP confessed he was excited to see his daughter for the first time and couldn't wait to take her home. However, after spending a few days with her, he noticed something unusual.
Looking at her fine, straight hair every day made him question if she belonged to him.
Despite his having a dark skin tone, his daughter was "extremely pale," which worried him greatly. However, he didn't overthink it, expecting her color would eventually darken.

After the birth of their daughter, the couple invited their friends for a celebration. The women gathered in the living room and congratulated OP's fiancée while OP was outdoors with his guy friends. He explained what happened next:
"They all mentioned that they didn’t want to worry me or to cause drama but asked if I ever thought my fiancé would cheat on me."
At first, OP was confused, but then he realized what they meant. He immediately shut down their suspicions and then changed the topic saying his daughter's skin tone would darken with time.

Five months after his daughter's birth, OP still couldn't help but think about her skin tone. The realization that it wouldn't darken in time made him worry a lot, along with other features that weren't similar to his. He shared his concerns:
"The thing that’s been bothering me the most is that everyday she looks more and more Asian in the eyes."
Looking at her fine, straight hair every day made him question if she belonged to him. However, he couldn't muster the courage to share his concerns with his fiancée because he was afraid of offending her.

Confused, he asked the internet to help him decide his next step. He didn't want his fiancée to think he was accusing her of sleeping with someone else. EstuaryKingBI suggested:
"Get a DNA test and secretly do it yourself."
The Redditor further advised OP to confront his fiancée if the test results were negative. gloomloon supported the idea of getting a secret DNA test, but she also shared that her child looked nothing like her.

She elaborated that many people believe that their children will always look exactly like them, but that's not true. However, she advised OP to take the test for his peace of mind. Meanwhile, MatcoWife added:
"We carry DNA from many generations in us and you never know what is going to be passed on."
Many Redditors shared similar stories where children didn't resemble their parents. However, they asked OP to take the test for his satisfaction.

Questions to Ponder:
Do you think OP's wife cheated on him?
Since his daughter didn't resemble him, OP suspected his wife had cheated on him. The surprise pregnancy also made him believe that something was wrong. However, babies don't always resemble their parents, so it might be possible that his wife was innocent. Do you think she cheated on him?
Would you take the DNA test and confront your wife afterward if you were OP?
Many people suggested OP secretly take a DNA test and then confront his wife if the results were negative. His wife may get offended after knowing he did a DNA test on their daughter behind her back. She might blame him for not trusting her, and things might get worse for OP. Do you think he should follow this advice?
