The Who’s Your Daddy Truck hit the streets of Boston and made an immediate splash. There was a frenzy of onlookers, picture takers, and clients with DNA test questions … at one point, they were actually lined up to get close enough to have a good look. Even Boston Magaziner noopener”>Boston Magazine came out and wrote a story about us.

In one day, we met dozens of Bostonians with the need for paternity testing services, including some people with wild situations. One Cambridge woman recently found out (at age 45) that her father may not actually be her biological father. We are going to test her against her sister to see if they are full siblings or half siblings.

In another case, we were approached by a 40 year old man from the Southie neighborhood who got friended on Facebook by a teenager that lived in Chicago. He didn’t know why she reached out to him at first, but later on she told him he was her real father. He had no idea there was even the possibility of a child out there! He has no other kids. We are going to do the test to determine if in fact they are really father and daughter.

And at the end of the day, we rolled out to Chelsea to test a woman, her boyfriend, and her 1 year old child. The issue here was that she was married to another guy, and the other guy didn’t know that the kid might not be his. Waiting on those results now.
