A Chinese father who always thought the boy he raised was too good looking to be his son has been proved right.
The boy’s mother, only referred to as Zhang in the Chinese media, said friends and family have always remarked on how the boy, Wang ye, was much better looking than both of his parents.
“[My son] has big eyes and a high nose bridge. His father is not very good looking and is quite different,” Zhang told Kan Kan News.
Such aesthetic anomalies were a great source of suspicion for Zhang’s husband, who she eventually divorced in 2004 after years of arguments about their son being too good looking.
Seven years later Zhang’s ex-husband demanded a DNA test, the results of which showed the boy was not related to either of his “parents”.
Mother and son were both devastated and refused to believe the tests were correct. Last year, Wang ye, now 28, took another test, which also gave the same result.
Wang ye was born at Shanghai First Maternity and Infant Hospital in 1989. Zhang believes he was switched at birth, but the hospital can neither confirm of deny her claims.
They apparently “could not find the records from that time”.
