  • Woman takes DNA test and discovers fertility doctor used his sperm to impregnate her mum

Mortimer examined Ashby and Fowler to determine their reproductive problems.

Kelly Rowlette discovered through her Ancestry.com results that Dr. Gerald Mortimer is her biological father.

It wasn't until Rowlette sent off her DNA sample that the secret unraveled.

Ms Rowlette initially dismissed the Ancestry.com test that determined Dr Mortimer was her father, but later found her birth certificate with his signature, the Daily Beast reported.

A 36-year-old Washington woman has sued a retired fertility doctor in Idaho after taking a DNA test and learning he allegedly inseminated her mother without her parents' knowledge.

Ashby and Fowler met Mortimer in 1979, when they were a married couple residing in Idaho Falls, according to the lawsuit.

The complaint alleges Dr Mortimer instead used his own semen, and when Ms Rowlette was conceived, she was Dr Mortimer's biological offspring. It was the same doctor who delivered baby Kelli and looked after her mother for a few more years following the birth. Her parents had used Mortimer's services back when they were trying to get pregnant, and apparently he managed to pull a fast one on them.

'Dr Mortimer fraudulently and knowingly concealed his use of his own genetic material in the procedure'. TIME also attempted to reach him at a number listed on a Facebook page, but was told that Dr. Mortimer had retired several years ago. However, when she discovered her paternal match was the doctor who delivered her, she confronted her now-divorced parents. "Dr Mortimer knew Kelli Rowlette was his biological daughter but did not disclose this".

40000 civilians return home in Syria's Eastern Ghouta
After a brutal month-old offensive, Syria's government and its ally Russian Federation begin securing evacuation deals to clear out Eastern Ghouta.

As for Ancestry's help finding uncovering the truth, Eric Health, Ancestry.com's Chief Privacy Officer, told USA TODAY the company's tests help people "make new and powerful discoveries about their family history and identity" and might lead to "unexpected connections".

Ms. Rowlette and her family are suing Mortimer, his wife, and Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates of Idaho Falls on claims of medical negligence, fraud, battery, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and breach of contract, Gizmodo writes.

Additionally, the lawsuit claims Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates of Idaho Falls is vicariously liable for Mortimer's alleged actions and for "failure to exercise due care to control Mortimer so he would not injure patients". "Anyone who takes a test can change their DNA matching settings at any time, meaning that if they opt-out, their profile and relationship will not be visible to other customers", the statement said.
