If carried out properly, a paternity DNA test can be extremely accurate.
So when one woman found out her child wasn’t her husband’s – despite claiming she hasn’t cheated – it’s safe to say she was confused.
Speaking to Ghanaian social media personality and songwriter David Bondze-Mbir, a woman in Ghana has been seeking answers to her situation online.
David often receives messages from people who are looking for advice, on anything from dealing with mental health to how to improve sex in the relationship.
The woman, who remains anonymous, secretly did a DNA test on her child after finding something was a bit “off” with their characteristics.
Although not something her husband had picked up on, she decided she had to take a DNA test to put her suspicions at ease.
When the DNA results came back she was even more puzzled than before – as it showed that she is the mother of her child, but her husband is not the father.
Explaining the bizarre story on Facebook, David said: “Because her husband is the only man she’s been with since meeting him, she’s finding it very difficult to wrap her head around the DNA result, and exactly how to go about it.
“No one will believe she’s really not been with any other man since meeting her husband. She got pregnant with this particular child, months after their wedding.”
Leaving another comment under his post, David shared: “I do believe her when she says she’s not known anyone besides her husband. Some health professionals are suggesting a probability of a child carrying just one parent’s DNA, and that, it’s scientifically proven.”
Thousands of people took to the comments to share their theories about how this could be possible.
Many people suggested it could be a case of ‘child swapping’, but David was very clear: “She’s the mother.”
Others urged the woman to take another test somewhere else before drawing conclusions.
“Repeat the test and ask her husband. The answer is in his reaction,” suggested one person, to which David said: “Agreed!”.
One person suggested another strange theory: “He (Her husband) was probably a twin at conception, unfortunately the other didn’t make it.
“Therefore she carries the DNA of her dad’s ‘dead’ sibling. Her husband has two DNAs. This is just a theory of what might have happened. Not a fact.”
Another person shared the same knowledge, saying: “I watched a YouTube video where by the mother tested negative to all her three kids. It was later they found out she has two DNA. She absorbed the DNA of a twin who couldn’t form properly, so her kids got the DNA of that unborn twin.”
David answered: “Oh wow! Thanks for sharing.”
