My fiance went ahead to call the Auntie again and asked her what the secret was. And that is how she told my fiance that my mother, her sister had an affair with her then-husband and got pregnant for him with me. That made her leave her husband and almost died out of heartbreak.
That my mother made her lose the love of her life and she told my mother not to keep the pregnancy so she could save her marriage but my mother wanted her husband so much that she refused. She divorced her husband and the man died a year later when I was barely 4 months old.
