For almost sixty years, 81 year-old Michigan resident Tony Trapani believed his wife and him had never had a child.
When his wife recently passed away, Tony was going through her belongings when he found an old letter. Inside was a bombshell secret his wife had been hiding for five decades. According to American Overlook, the letter revealed that Tony’s wife had given birth to his son over fifty years ago.
Tony has no idea why his wife tried to keep this hidden.
“She wanted children, she couldn’t have any,” he told reporters. “She tried and tried. He’s my full son that I’ve had my whole life, but why my wife hid that letter was beyond me.”
The letter was written in 1959, and it revealed that Tony had a five year-old son at the time whom he never knew about.
“I have a little boy. He is five years old now,” his wife wrote. “What I’m trying to say Tony is that he is your son. He was born November 4, 1953.”
The son, who is now 62 years-old, believed for his entire life that his father did not want to see him. Tony reached out to him after finding the letter, and their meeting was absolutely breathtaking.
