A 19-year-old spilled the beans on how he caused a massive family problem with a £80 DNA kit.

The man was left heartbroken after the test exposed his mum a cheater, causing a situation between his whole family.

He explained how he bought testing kits for himself and his dad following the recent "craze" in them.

But he didn't expect the results to turn their lives upside down…

The man wrote on Reddit: "We got our results back a few days ago and I went into the DNA relatives section to check out my matches.

"At the top it listed my dad as only sharing 29.2% DNA with me and being predicted to be a half-brother, which is impossible.

"This didn't make sense to me since we also shared a paternal haplogroup and we just look so alike, so he was definitely my father."

The teen later found out he shares 24.6% DNA with his cousin, also predicting her to be his half-sister, as cousins usually have around 12%.

He added: "I couldn't think of a genetic relationship that would explain what I was seeing and I had doubts in the accuracy of the percentages.

"The shared percentages are extremely accurate and highly unlikely to be false.

"The only realistic explanation for what I was seeing was that my uncle, my cousin's father and my dad's brother, is my father. Reality hit me in the face like a flying bag of bricks.

"All the dots lined up and I felt a sense of loss. I sat in my room for an hour just in shock and then I had a feeling of anger come over me. I needed some answers."

He then showed his mum his DNA results and asked her why they weren't adding up.

The man continued: "My irrational self didn't even sugar coat it. I asked her if she cheated on dad with uncle David.

"I have never seen the colour drain from someone's face so quickly. She looked dumbfounded and then mumbled 'What kind of question is this? Of course not'.

"I told her everything; the test, percentages, DNA matches, all of it! My mum fell to the ground crying, begging me not to tell dad."

He went on to explain how he phoned up his cousin – actually his half sister – to tell her everything.

"She ended the call screaming. My dad (now uncle) then came home and stumbled into my room asking what's wrong with mum," he added.

"I told him everything too. He didn't say anything after calming down. He left the room and I locked the door."

The man went on: "For the next few hours, I heard my entire family fall apart outside my door. My parents got into a heated argument and my grandparents rushed over to see what was going on.

"My aunt-in-law and David showed up shortly later and I'm pretty sure I heard my dad and David get into some physical fight. Utter chaos.

"I feel like s*** – I know it's not my fault but I can't help feeling that this is all because of me.

"If I had spent my birthday money on something else, none of this would have happened, but another part of me is glad to know the truth."

After sharing his story, many users came up with ways he could salvage the relationships between his family.

One said: "The only person at fault is your mother and 'uncle'. She and him are the ones who cheated and lied. You don't need to feel guilty about exposing their guilt.

"Your real dad is the guy who raised you, not the guy whose genes are more similar."

Another added: "Your dad would be devastated! Give him time, space and comfort him."
