Woman's 'soul left her body' after mum told her she's having a baby with her then boyfriend

She found out the news over the phone whilst on holiday

A woman has opened up about the awful moment she found out her mum was having a child with the man she had been in a relationship with.

The American woman, named Vanessa, found out about boyfriend’s infidelity while on a holiday in Mexico – with her ‘distraught’ mum then delivering the life-changing news over the phone.

Taking to TikTok to share her ordeal, Vanessa has posted multiple videos explaining the traumatic betrayal that has turned her life upside down.

Unsurprisingly, she hasn’t spoken to her mum since finding out. She also revealed that since finding out about her mum’s pregnancy, other women have claimed they were also in a relationship with her ex when they were still together.

Vanessa said: “It all started when I was on a girl’s trip in Mexico. Roe vs Wade just got overturned that morning and I was calling all the women in my life just to see how they were and to check on them.

“When I got to my mum she was obviously distraught, crying. I didn’t think anything of it because she’s a woman, raising a woman in America, and she knows multiple other woman who would be affected by this.

“Two days later I call my mum just to check on her and she’s still audibly distraught, you could tell she’d be crying.

“She ended up just telling me after a few minutes, she was like, I’m pregnant”.

Initially, Vanessa had been “really happy” about the news, and was “excited” about having a younger sibling. This was before the whole story came to light.

She continued: “When she told me I was just congratulating her and talking about next steps, I said have you booked the first ultrasound and [asked] how are you feeling, making funny jokes talking about [baby] names.

But when her mum admitted she was having a child with Vanessa’s then-boyfriend, she was left devastated.

In the video, she doesn’t reveal the man’s real name, simply calling him John.

Vanessa recalled: “I asked her to repeat myself because, keep in mind I’m a little bit drunk, I’m in Mexico, come on, I was like, ‘what?’ and then she says it’s by John.

“After I heard that, my soul left my body and everything that came after that, I was not ready for”.

Vanessa has posted several videos about the betrayal, racking up millions of views on TikTok.

She said that as soon as the call with her mum was over she blocked her and her boyfriend, packed her bags and went home.

When she got back to her place, the man had already moved out but had taken some of her things so that she was forced to speak to him.

She explained: “I asked him if he understands the magnitude of what he’s done to me, he says he’s sorry and he told me that if I come back he’ll make things right and we can rebuild our relationship and that my mother would take care of the child.”

“At that point I gave him the ultimatum, I was like give me my things or I’m putting you in jail. Ultimately he gave my things back”.

Vanessa has not spoken to either her mother or her ex since.

“I had multiple woman reach out to me on socials once started coming out with the story and they’ve let me know that they’ve either had relations with him or they were in long term relationships with him,” she claims.

She finished by saying that she is “in a new place, trying to heal and trying to move on with my life.”

Thousands flocked to the comments on part 1 of her video, offering their thoughts, sympathy and shock about the story.

One wrote: “I would never forgive the both of them that’s excruciating.”

Another said it was “absolutely unforgivable,” with a third added: “Normalize breaking up with family no matter who it is!”
