Wife Claims Husband is Not the Father (Full Episode) | Paternity Court

Hello, Your Honor. Hello. This is the case
ofKiesel v. Kiesel.Thank you, Jerome.
Good day, everyone. ALL: Good day! Mr. Kiesel, you say
your marriage depends
on today’s paternity results after your wife announced
that the child she is
currently pregnant with may not be yours. You are here to prove
that you are the father, and save your family. Is that correct? Yes, Your Honor. Mrs. Kiesel, you say
it breaks your heart to stand in court
to prove that your husband is not your unborn
child’s father. But, you know the truth. Another man is. Yes, Your Honor. Mr. Kiesel. Why are today’s results
so important? My marriage
has been
put on the line. A month into our marriage,
she had cheated on me, and it led to where
I might not be the father
of this child. It was supposed to be
a happy, great thing for us,
and it’s just caused problems and heartbreak
and lots of issues for us. So, you’re supposed
to still be in
the honeymoon-newly-wed phase. And instead of that,
you have a paternity issue. Yes, Your Honor. What is your day-to-day
family life like? It’s caused us
a lot of issues. We argue non-stop
about who the father is. If I’m the father,
if he’s the father, it just causes a lot of…It causes us
to be very distant
from each other.
So, Ms. Kiesel, there’s
a lot of arguing going on
in your household? DESTINY: Yes, Your Honor. Explain to the court
how this is affecting you. Um… (SIGHS) It has affected me
in a huge way. Not only just our marriage,
but my pregnancy as well. Because it’s hard for me
to necessarily… I mean, yes,
I’m excited for it, but it makes it harder
when there’s so much stress
put into the pregnancy. Um, rather than being
everybody together, you know, having a good time,
for like a baby shower… Say, we were supposed
to have a baby shower. That ended up
getting canceled because both of the possible
fathers’ families
wanted to be there. And that was
just difficult. Oh. So, it’s put a lot
of stress on me as well. I understand
that I made the mistakes. But it has put
a lot on me as well because of, you know,
not being able
to fully enjoy my pregnancy like a mother should. I need to ask you this. What in the world would
possess you to cheat
on your husband one month
after your wedding day? Um, we really rushed
into a relationship. We had been
dating on and off. But it was back and forth
with my ex and him. Um, we both have
broke up a couple of times while we were dating. And then when we got married,
it just was kind of a “Let’s go
do this” kind of thing. JUDGE LAKE: Got it. It was like,
“Let’s do it today.” So, we did, and I just
feel like we might have
got married a little too young. Not necessarily young,
but quick. Um, so that, I think,
has a big effect
on it as well. Because I wasn’t
fully over my ex. So, how soon after this
cheating happened did you find out
you were pregnant? Um, just a couple
of weeks later. It was around April 1st
that I had… Oh, no, sorry.
The end of March,
I found out I was pregnant. My husband and I
were trying to have a baby. Anyway, so, we had been
taking a test once a week. And I happened to take one
and it was positive. And at first, I was really
happy and excited. And then just a couple
of seconds later, it hit me that I’m about
to have to tell him something
no husband wants to hear. So, you found out
you were pregnant first, and then you knew
you had to tell your husband. Yes. Because you knew
there was a possibility
this other man could also be… Your ex could be the child’s
biological father. Yes, Your Honor. And so, Mr. Kiesel,
describe what happened when you take
this pregnancy test
with your wife, this test you’ve been
doing once a week because you hoped
to conceive a child, and after this moment of
“Yes, we’re pregnant!” you have to get the news
that,”Oh, no,
but you cheated.” It was crushing. We had been trying
for a while and she
was in the bathroom, she walked out
crying and told me
she was pregnant. And I asked
why she was crying, and she told me
that there’s a possibility
that I might not be the father. And I just
broke down myself. And it was heartbreaking
that this thing that was
supposed to be great… We’d been trying,
we finally got it, and I might not even
be the father of it. So, once you found out
you were pregnant,
what did you say to yourself? Did you say, “Okay, let me
figure out a conception window “and let me figure out
who I was with
during that time”? Yes, Your Honor.
I got a conception window. JUDGE LAKE: Take me
through that process. Okay, I got a conception date,
April 1st, at my first… It wasn’t really
a doctor’s appointment,
I had started spotting. So, we went
to the emergency room to confirm that I
was even pregnant because we just
had a home test done. So, April 1st, I went
to the emergency room. And did they give you
your conception date? Yes, they did, Your Honor.
It was March 8th. March 8th. And now, Mr. Kiesel,
when were you intimate
with your wife? We were intimate
on the 8th. JUDGE LAKE: You were? Yes, Your Honor. JUDGE LAKE: Okay,
so that’s gonna be
a ‘K’ for Mr. Kiesel. I gotta ask you this,
Ms. Kiesel. When were you intimate
with your ex? Which day? The 7th and the 9th. (AUDIENCE EXCLAIMING) JUDGE LAKE: Okay. JUDGE LAKE:So, I don’t
think I have to say
that these dates
are very close
in proximity. Yes, Your Honor. Which only further
fuels the doubt. So, Ms. Kiesel,
are you certain
about these days? Yes, Your Honor, because
on the 9th, I actually
got in a car wreck and I had been taken
to the hospital, and then later that night…
That’s how I
remember the 9th. And that I just remember
that two days prior was also. But, the 8th, he wasn’t
around on the 8th. I know that for sure
because he was working. So, Mr. Kiesel, are you sure
of the date you gave the court?
March 8th? DUNCAN:I’m
almost positive of it.
And so, you believe,
despite these dates
being so close in proximity, that you are
the child’s father? I do, Your Honor. Tell the court why. We have a nose
that looks a lot alike. Mine goes down
and then bubbles
at the end.And with the ultrasounds
that we had, the child
had the same kind of nose.
You believe
that by looking
at this ultrasound, it appears that you have
a similar nose to the child. And we have
fat upper lips.I see it
in the ultrasound as well.
DESTINY:Your Honor.JUDGE LAKE:Yes.I hope he is the dad. I want our marriage to work,
and I want everything
to be fine. And well, not fine,
’cause we’re still gonna
have to work on, you know, the dishonesty
and stuff like that, but I do hope
he is the dad. And I hope, you know,
things turn out
for the best. But, regardless… But you understand
that a hope is not proof. A hope is not evidence. Yes, Your Honor. So, you say you believe
the child is not his. You hope it is,
but you believe
it is not. I have strong doubt,
Your Honor. You do,
and that’s because… DESTINY:
The conception date. Do you remember being
intimate with your husband
on March 8th? I honestly don’t
remember, Your Honor. The only reason I remember
the ex is because of it being
on the day of the car wreck. JUDGE LAKE: And then
you remembered you’d also had sex with him
two days before. Yes, and he was
not there on the 8th,
because he was working. And so… And so, the truth is, you don’t
even remember being intimate
with your husband on March 8th, but you do remember
sleeping with your ex
on the 7th and the 9th. Yes. JUDGE LAKE: You do? Yes. So, Mr. Kiesel,
are you just hoping
you are the father? But you really
don’t have any proof. Anything you can
really hang your hat on? Honestly, I have
a cleft chin. And in some of the pictures,
it’s a little hard to see, but it’s a very
dominant trait. And I was born
with bilateral clubfoot
and my father was and my two brothers
were as well, so,
it seems to run in my family. Whenever we were going
through ultrasounds
and having that done, it actually looked like
his feet might have had
some deformities in it as well.So that’s another reason
I also thought that the child
would be mine.
Okay, so you’re seeing
more than just this nose You’re saying
from these ultrasounds, you believe that there are
other characteristics
that run in your family. Yes, Your Honor. Your child also has. DESTINY: Your Honor? Yes. We actually took some
of the ultrasounds
to my new doctor, and she actually did
an ultrasound as well. And she did not believe
there was any deformities or anything wrong,
medically, with him.So, that’s another…So you’re saying that this
clubfoot that he believes
he sees in the ultrasound, you’ve been told by your doctor
that she did not seem
to see any indication… Yes, Your Honor. Yes. …of this physical condition. So, Mr. Kiesel,
you talked about that
they run in your family, and many of the other men
in your family
have this characteristic. I want to learn
more about that. Jerome, would you please escort
Dr. Samantha Brown-Parks
into the courtroom? I’d like
to hear from her. JEROME: Watch your step. DR. SAMANTHA: Hi, there. JUDGE LAKE: Hello, Doctor. JUDGE LAKE: Hello.
Thank you so much. Our couple,
Mr. and Mrs. Kiesel
are here, and they are desperately
trying to determine
whether or not Mr. Kiesel is this child’s
biological father. He has talked about
having a physical condition that runs in his family,
a clubfoot. And I need to know from you,
is this something
that is hereditary? Is this something you can
diagnose in the womb? Please tell the court
more about this. Okay. So, clubfoot happens
in about one in a thousand
live births in the US. So it’s a fairly
common birth defect. One-fourth of those
have a family history of someone in their family
having a clubfoot also. Is it genetic?
Um, it is familial. Meaning that there are
multiple factors. In fact, we know
from a study in 2010 that tells us
on chromosome 17, there’s at least
four different genes
that play a role. JUDGE LAKE: Okay. So, you can inherit those genes
from one or both parents. And they can
make you more likely
to develop clubfoot. There’s not one gene
in clubfoot. There’s
multiple genes. Oh. As far as whether or not
you can diagnose in utero, you can, for sure, see it. At about 20 weeks,
we do an anatomic scan
of the fetus and we look
for abnormalities. So, from the picture
that we’ve seen, the still shot,
the 2-D shot
of the foot, it’s not possible
to tell yes or no. Okay. Because the court did give you
the scans we received, and you were able
to review those. DR. SAMANTHA: Correct. And upon reviewing them,
you don’t feel like
you can say. DR. SAMANTHA:
Cannot say yes or no.
JUDGE LAKE:Okay.JUDGE LAKE:After hearing
the testimony
of the doctor, Mr. Kiesel,
has your opinion changed
as to whether or not
you believe this child is your biological child? Not really,
Your Honor. From what I saw
in the ultrasounds,
I thought I saw the clubfoot. I see many resemblances
between us, and… But have you been honest
with yourself about these feelings
you’ve had thus far? Meaning, “I want the child
to be mine, I believe
the child is mine, “but I do know
for certain that there
is a very real possibility “that this is not
my biological child”? I understand
the possibilities. I want this child
more than anything. We had been trying
for a child,
and then we finally got it. I missed one appointment
due to work,
and that’s all I’ve missed. And I’ve been here
every step of the way. This is my child,
and it needs
to be my child. And how does it make you feel
that your wife is saying, “I don’t think
you are the father”? That hurts extremely bad,
seeing that I’m there. Instead of it just
being, “You might
not be the father,” she’s saying
she thinks I’m not. And that dampens
the mood between us. (AUDIENCE LAUGHS) I can imagine. Mrs. Kiesel,
you said earlier
in your testimony, you believe
the child is not his. You hope it is,
but you believe
it is not. Yes, I want him
more than anything
to be the biological father. But we don’t
have any proof yet, which is why
we’re here today, is to finally settle this,
because afterwards,
there won’t be any doubt. No matter which way it goes,
we don’t have
to wonder anymore. Absolutely, and I don’t
want you to wonder anymore. So I want to
get you these results. Jerome. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) These results were prepared
by DNA Diagnostics and
they read as follows. In order for us
to determine paternity, a prenatal DNA test
was performed. A blood sample
was drawn from the mother and fetal DNA
was isolated
from the sample. Genetic analysis
was performed and a probability
of paternity
was generated. In the case of
Kiesel v. Kiesel,
when it comes to the child
Mrs. Kiesel
is currently carrying, it has been determined
by this Court Mr. Kiesel, you are the father. (AUDIENCE CHEERING) I know that
has to feel good. AUDIENCE: Aw. I’m sorry. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) I love you. I love you. How does it feel, sir? DUNCAN: (VOICE BREAKING)
Amazing. (SOBBING) I’m so happy for you. And I know those
are tears of joy. And I can imagine you have
cried the other kinds of tears
up until this point. And that’s why I believe
the truth is so special, and so important,
and so necessary. Especially in situations
like these. And I’m so happy
you had the courage
to come here today before the baby was born,
and have this done
and have this settled. So now you all can regain
and reclaim the joy you lost
in the doubt, right? DUNCAN: Yes, Your Honor. Right. And prepare
for the delivery. I love alliteration. I want you all
to talk to Dr. Jeff and deal with some
of the feelings, Ms. Kiesel,
that you even talked about here so that you can learn
how to create good boundaries
in your life with exes and other people
that may come in and negatively influence
your relationship
and your marriage and put it at jeopardy. Because now,
you’ve got a new baby, and we want you all
to raise that baby up right. All right? DESTINY: Thank you. I wish you all
the very best of luck. Congratulations,
Mr. Kiesel. DUNCAN: Thank you. Court is adjourned.


  1. I don't condone cheating..but in the event that you cheat why not use condoms?? It's disgusting. Last night your ex dump himself inside you, next day your poor husband just jump in no life jacket. What if you give him a disease?

  2. wow! he said sorry to a cheater wife! if i was in this situation the person would punch me in face and through me in the garbage ! cool that some hoe are verrrrryyyy lucky !

  3. Yeah just take care of the child and leave your wife she clearly has feelinga for her ex and not u so hope u made a good choice

  4. Jeez, he is going to regret that this is his kid. Dude, she wants the other guy, that's why she actively tried getting pregnant by him. She will make your life a misery as long as you are with her.

  5. Smartness is mandatory in a relationship and cyberhackinggenius helped cloned my spouse device and I got access to all his dealings both on phone and social media without touching his devices. All I did was share my husband’s phone number with cyberhackinggenius and I was able to read both his new and deleted messages from a cloned device without having to touch his phone. I read all his Whatsapp, Facebook,Instagram and Snapchat messages Including the deleted text messages and iMessages. You can contact him via Gmail  (cyberhackinggenius) or text and speak to him directly on his phone and WhatsApp : +19256795146 and don’t forget to thank me later

  6. dont deny this women the oppurtunity to be a single poverty stricken women, cut off everything divorce her now

  7. 899,000 views of her scandalous behavior. Who in her hometown doesn't know?

    This is why it is not a good idea to appear on these (Springer, Maury, Lake) shows. You are on the internet for forever.

  8. I get the feeling that they rushed because she wasn’t over her ex. He seems like the type to push and she’s just checked out. This won’t be the first time

  9. She don't want him and didn't want him to be the dad. She probably wanted and excuse to bounce. Poor guy.

  10. Saying sorry to a cheating wife who says nothing back, saying I love you to a cheating wife & yet she says nothing back. This dude though😭

  11. Im sorry but he needs to divorce her. She will continue cheating she’s not worth anything. Smh 🤦🏽‍♀️

  12. I feel like the wife wants the ex to be the father.. the husband deserves better smh.. I hope they are well now

  13. Aside from everything – this is how it suppose to be done. Before the kid is even here. So there's clarity and if the father is the father there's no distance between him and the kid.

  14. Super simp alert. He feels amazing and has tears of joy over his wife getting the D from the ex and will continue to have those feelings afterwards. He's the money and more stable guy, but the ex is the bedroom guy.

  15. When the judge asked what possessed her to cheat 1 month into the marriage, she said it was cause they rushed into a relationship. 😒😒😒
    Please girl, whether it is 10 days, 10 years or 100 years…YOU DO NOT CHEAT.
    Wanna go out with someone else, if you fall out of love, or having problems etc…THEN LEAVE!
    Honestly I can't stand these people with their self righteous attitude and excuses.

  16. When they hugged, the way she replied to his "I love you" with "I love you"… I don't want to spoil the good mood, but…

  17. Who are raised these men they come on this show there wife/girlfriend get pregnant by other men and lie to them and they still want to be with them.

  18. Just co parent she still has feelings for her ex and she probaly will see him behind your back even if u are the father

  19. I can’t get my head around how these folks are only 19yrs old. When I was that age no way could I afford any babies until I was out of university & employed and actually able to plan & provide for a new life at my expense….

  20. I received a lot of STD, DOUBT UNFAITHFUL for watching this paternity court I don't want watch this again, an am obsessed with this channel.

  21. Did this simp just apologize to her?!? She wanted the ex to be the father so she could have ties to both because she knew the husband wasn’t going anywhere! Oh well they will be back for baby number 2

  22. “We gone have to work on the dishonesty” only you have to work the dishonesty you don’t deserve this good man!

  23. Both are still children.They are playing as adults.Muuuch TOOO YOUNG for a Mariage.Where are There Parents ????

  24. She still wants to be with her ex. She states that her and her husband were trying to have a baby but then she cheated with her
    ex. She doesn't love him. I feel sorry for him. Why go on national tv to expose your infidelity?

  25. She doesn't seem that into him. She's relieved it's his but he said sorry I love you to her… Apologising for nothing and she said nothing in return… Hmmm

    She also hinted that they got married to quickly/young and she was still hung up on her ex… Aka it's not over… She's sad it's not her ex's

  26. Dude the moment she cheated your marriage was over. Bro the fact she saying its not yours tells you what she wants. He made the worst mistake of his life marrying this woman an knocking her up. He keeps trying to force the relationship with her. Words have power an meaning don't be blind to them. Sorry but she'll keep cheating.

  27. Whatever her faults, at least she told him from the get-go. We PC addicts have seen enough episodes to know that rarely happens….

  28. 6am and I’m getting my fix of Paternity Court. I really need to get my sh!t together though because watching all these couples cheat on each other is making it harder for me to accept my virtually sexless marriage 🤷🏾‍♂️

  29. This woman is terrible 🤦🏻‍♀️ you can clearly see she wanted the ex to be the father she has a great husband but she still wants the ex and I bet the ex is straight garbage that’s how things work nowadays we don’t appreciate the good ppl and be dying for the trash 🤦🏻‍♀️

  30. Man you married the man woman and turn round breed her!!!,,, can't you understand that is the Ex she loves?, she not even remember laying with you.. she sleeps with her real husband the day before, you yesterday, and the today again,, and said she can't remember sleeps with you yesterday!!!, come on boy,,be man,onpen your eyes and stand up and be man…. Leave… and run fast to….

  31. Why would someone that young want to waste his time with a cheating cow like this. Hopefully dude wised up and is enjoying his youth cuz getting old sucks and she’s going to age terribly.

  32. I am so very happy for him. She said she was hoping he was the father but believe he truly was not I don't know about that. I kind of get the feeling she was hoping it was the other guy.
