A TikTok user has revealed the highly unusual way she discovered her husband of a decade was not only having an affair but had fathered two children with another woman.
Ami Addison, 47, from Pennsylvania in the US, took to the video-sharing platform to regale her fellow users with a soap opera-worthy tale of lies, cheating and secret babies.
'That's how I found out'
In a clip posted on her account, @aaddison_01, ER nurse Ami explained how an article in a local newspaper exposed her then-husband's infidelity — right before their 10-year wedding anniversary.
"So about a week before our tenth wedding anniversary I was in my office looking through the newspaper," she began.
"At that time, in the newspaper, they would publish the parents' names, sex of the baby, date they were born, what hospital and if it was a boy or a girl," she went on.
Lo and behold, she spotted a very familiar name — her husband's — in the list of new parents alongside "some other female's name". Ami was sure it was her husband because he has an "unusual" name.
She searched both her husband's and the woman's names on the section of the hospital website that displayed photos of newborn bubs.
"Sure enough, they had a baby boy a few days prior," she said.
Not only that but, according to the website, the couple had welcomed a daughter about a year and a half earlier.
"So yeah, that's how I found out I was being cheated on," Ami concluded.
Across 20 or so subsequent videos, Ami answered TikTok users' questions and shared more juicy details about her former husband, who she divorced after uncovering his 'secret' family.
Not before she packed up her and her three kids' belongings — she had three children from a previous relationship — and moved them out of the family home and into a hotel.
She then gathered up her husband's things and dumped them on the top of his car, which she found parked right outside his lover's house.
According to Ami, her husband attempted to deny the affair at first but, when faced with cold hard evidence, finally came clean.
Since then, Ami's found love with a friend of her ex and they've been together for the past eight years.
