A woman says she received a message from an unknown number urging her to conduct a DNA test in order to find the truth about her parentage in a now-viral TikTok storytime.
In the video posted by TikToker Lane (@laneiscool14) on Dec. 1, she points to a screenshot of a text message she received from an unknown number, saying, “This text message right here changed my life forever.”
“About a year ago now, on Jan. 9, I get a text message telling me to get a DNA test And I think it’s fake, I FaceTime my friend, and I’m like, ‘Listen to this.’ And she’s like, ‘I swear my gut is telling me this is real. You need to respond.’ So I respond, and then they write me back,” Lane continues.
Lane shows another part of the text conversation, saying, “I was shook that they responded, and I let them know I had already done 23andMe the year before because it was on sale. I was hoping I was gonna find that I was like secretly exotic or related to royalty, but I’m just English and Irish like I thought I was.”
“They would not provide me with any sort of proof that this was real, and, obviously, I called my mom immediately.
As it turns out, the message she received wasn’t someone just messing with her, and Lane’s mom revealed that she had an “affair” while she was in college.
“I find out that, yes, this man is my father.”
