Woman Learns Her Husband Was Actually Her Father - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.
An Ohio woman, Valerie Spruill has had quite a few heartbreaks in her life. At the young age of nine, she discovered that the man she had believed was her father was actually her granddad. Then she came to the realization that a woman referred to as a friend of the family was in reality her birth mother.
Valerie finally thought she found happiness when she married a man named Percy Spruill. However, another horrifying family secret came out. After her husband’s death in 1998, she was told by an uncle that she had married her own biological father.
Using hair from a brush, a DNA test confirmed the shocking claim. While she had no idea about her husband’s true identity, she suspects her spouse may have known and was too scared to inform her.
Valerie hopes her story can be an inspiration to people who are battling with family problems. She states “It needs to be told, because children need to know where they come from. And I know it hurts, because I have been devastated by this”.
