DEAR DEIDRE: TO prove we are siblings for her application to stay in the UK, my sister and I had to do DNA tests.
We are shocked to find we have different dads.
I am 31 and my sister is 27. She spoke to our mum, who admitted her relationship with another man had overlapped with her getting together with the man I call Dad.
But Mum did not realise the other man was the father.
She said she would try to find the guy, though she had no idea of his whereabouts.
That was months ago and now she never brings it up.
I love Dad and we get on well, but do I tell him he’s not my father?
Do I keep pretending none of this has happened or should I speak to my mum again?

DEIDRE SAYS: Don’t tell your dad but do speak to your mum again.
She may be hoping the issue will go away and she won’t have to deal with the past.
Your dad is your dad in every way that counts. He’s been the one who has been there for you growing up.
The fact he’s not your birth father doesn’t change that.
