He said they had to do that because his mom's parents didn't approve of the relationship and he was a "honeymoon baby". I did the math in my head and asked him if he was born early. Nope. I started laughing and joking about him being a "honeymoon baby"...surely he knew. Right? The thought never had entered his head. He double checked my math and was actually shocked.

Clearly this information wasn't all that upsetting, more amusing that 40 years later they were keeping up the lie. But I really cant believe he never even thought about it. It was a full 6 weeks.
Well, the honeymoon just preceded the nuptials a bit!

Check out the Genealogy forum. Lots of people there who have found out "Family Secrets".

I know this is extremely unlikely, but its important to know who her bio mom is because shes 18 and is probably dating or will be soon. It would be quite a nasty shock if she finds out shes dating a half-sibling or a cousin.
Egg donation is generally anonymous.
