See also GeneHunting, in which ''the child'' seeks his or her parentage. Nothing to do with the stock phrase used when [[BringIt one person taunts another in a fight.]]

* Sue Ellen became pregnant on ''{{Dallas}}'' after an affair with Cliff Barnes. Turned out the baby was indeed JR's. And they did it ''again'' years later when Cliff bumped into old girlfriend Afton and her daughter. Despite Cliff's hopes, this child too turned out to be someone elses daughter. * On ''TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager'', there were two candidates for the father of Anne's son: George, her ex-husband and her new boyfriend. The boyfriend had been told he was sterile, but George had gotten a vasectomy years earlier, so everyone assumed that the boyfriend was, in fact, not sterile and the father. Then George confessed that he had lied about getting a vasectomy. This led the boyfriend to conclude that George was the father. The boyfriend [[PutOnABus broke up with Anne and left]] and that was that. We [[spoiler: are initially led to believe that George is the father, but we later find out it's the boyfriend, David.]]

* Another central concept of the trope - the {{Fox}} reality show ''Who's Your Daddy?''. A person who had been adopted as an infant must pick out his or her biological father out of a group of 25 men. It gained a lot of controversy and massive backlash and was pulled off the air after only one episode. The remaining 5 episodes aired on their reality cable channel.

* ''{{Terriers}}'': Britt's girlfriend Katie gets pregnant shortly after a drunken one-night stand with her professor. Britt eventually finds out when he confronts her about why she hid the pregnancy from him. He's angry at first, but later asks her to throw away the paternity test results without looking, because he wants to believe the child is his.

* Done very dramatically in ''Film/RobRoy'', where Mary is uncertain if her baby's father is her husband, the titular character. . .or his mortal enemy, her rapist Cunningham.

* Every SoapOpera ever. Ever!

* Every SoapOpera ever. Ever! So common that ''Soap Opera Digest'' actually needed to ''applaud'' ''Series/GeneralHospital'' for avoiding this trope when Brenda slept with husband Jax and ex-lover Sonny.

Added DiffLines:
* Every SoapOpera ever. Ever! In the ''LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek'' (of course) ''The Secret She Carried'', a woman is raped and later finds out she's pregnant, but is uncertain if her husband or the rapist is the father. Adding to the drama is that by the time the pregnancy is advanced enough for her to do a paternity test, it will be too late for an abortion should the rapist be the father. As it turns out, her husband is the father after all, but in true ''{{Creator/Lifetime}}'' style, it doesn't stop the rapist from believing otherwise and promptly stalking and terrorizing her in an effort to claim "his" child.

* ''series/NipTuck'' has this with [[spoiler:Julia]] and the paternity of [[spoiler:Matt]]. After finding out that [[spoiler:Christian]] is his father, due to a one night stand before [[spoiler:Julia's]] wedding to [[spoiler:Sean]], she hides it from her husband. She reveals it to her son's father, her son, and her husband (in that order) causing her husband to kick her out. Her husband doesn't treat her son any differently and eventually forgives both his wife and his son's father for the affair.

* ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'': When Clare finds out she's pregnant, she figures the father is Drew, a one night stand, because he was the last guy she slept with. A few weeks later at her ultrasound, she finds out she's further along than she thought, meaning the father is actually her ex-boyfriend Eli.

* ''{{Lost}}'': Sun had an affair before coming to the island, and had been told Jin was infertile. Thus Sun is not certain Jin is her baby's father until a sonogram in "D.O.C." shows the baby was conceived on-island (and Juliet reveals the island increases sperm count.) The issue ''seems'' to be settled, but some fans suspect Michael may actually be the father.

* In ''{{Literature/Twilight}},'' this is a minor, [[AbortedArc unresolved]] subplot with Embry, who turns out to be a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent shapeshifter]]. The thing is, that power only passes from father to child, and the only shapeshifters who could have fathered Embry were married to women other than Embry's mother. It's an uncomfortable subject that most of the pack (some of whom, logically, must be Embry's half-siblings) tries to avoid.
