There are countless heartbreaking stories of infidelity on TikTok — especially within the stitch trend that called for users to share the worst ways they claimed they found out their exes were cheating on them.
User @aaddison01 delivered a tale straight out of a Lifetime movie.
In her video, she said she was reading a local paper one day when she stumbled upon the birth announcements.
“At that time, in the newspaper, they would publish … the parents’ names, sex of the baby, date they were born, what hospital,” she claimed. “So I see my husband’s name and some other female’s name.”
She said her now-ex-husband’s name was rather “unusual,” so she suspected it was him. To make sure, she typed his name and her first name into the local hospital’s website, which at the time had photos of new babies available to the public.
“Sure enough, they had a baby boy a few days prior,” @aaddison01 alleged. That wasn’t the only thing she found, either — she claimed she found out they had a baby girl together about a year and a half before that.
“So yeah, that’s how I found out I was being cheated on,” she concluded.
What makes the story even more wild? It all went down right before their tenth wedding anniversary.
In the comments, @aaddison01 said that in hindsight, there were tons of red flags in her relationship, but she didn’t pay attention to them at the time.
Viewers were just as shocked as one might expect.
“Men will have a WHOLE SECOND LIFE. How do they do it?!?!?! I can’t even juggle work and my one monogamous relationship properly,” one user said.
“I have so many questions,” another wrote.
“How did you not know?” a third remarked.
Commenters also noticed that @aaddison01 had a baby kicking in the back seat of her car the whole time she was talking, but thankfully, the child does not belong to her ex-husband.
According to a follow-up post, she left her ex-husband after the whole second family incident and has since been married to her current husband for the past 8 years.
There are 21 follow-up posts in all, in which she answers additional questions and dishes all the juicy details, so if you’re craving more drama, check them out.
