* ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'': Joy believes that Li'l Chubby is Dodge's father, but she's afraid of him, because she witnessed him mistreating another woman who claimed to be pregnant with his child. Earl wants her to come forward to Chubby, because he can see that Dodge (and Earl Jr.) are suffering due to their living in PerpetualPoverty. Joy tells him to drop it, but he persists, and gets a DaddyDNATest, against all odds (with a little help from Darnell). The test shows that Dodge is ''not'' Li'l Chubby's...but Earl's. It turns out, Earl and Joy conceived him at a Halloween party, and did not recognize each other afterwards. For the six years that they were married, Earl had been led to believe that Dodge's biological father was a stranger from a concert. In another ShockingSwerve, the test also shows that [[ChocolateBaby Earl Jr]]. is ''not'' Darnell's, as previously thought. It's never stated who his father actually is, due to the series being canceled, though WordOfGod says it was supposed to be a celebrity.

* Used hilariously and tragically in the French duology ''[[Film/ManonDesSources Jean de Florette]]'' and ''Manon des Sources''. In the first film, the protagonist wants the titular Jean to sell him his land, and plays many tricks on him to pursuade him to do so. It doesn't help that Jean is the son of his childhood sweetheart Florette, who left him and married another man while he was away at war. In the end, he successfully drives the Jean to his death and takes the land. In the second film Jean's daughter, Manon, takes revenge for her father's death. It is only at the end of this film that the main character discovers that, contrary to what he thought, Jean was not Florette's son by her husband, but his own son, and that he has unwittingly [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone caused the death of his only child]] and [[HeelRealisation been in conflict with his granddaughter!]]

* On ''GeneralHospital'', Alan and Monica spent several years believing that their son AJ was the result of Monica's affair, before finding out that he was Alan's son after all. Unfortunately, crucial bonding time had been lost between the two, resulting in years of AJ being TheUnfavorite (to the son conceived during ''Alan's'' affair) and him being an alcoholic failure. Decades later, AJ (correctly) suspected that he was the father of Carly's unborn child, but she lied and told him that his brother Jason was, fearing that either AJ or her boyfriend Tony would take the child away from her. Years later, Jason's girlfriend Robin finally told AJ the truth.

This is a common variation on the Your Son All Along trope. This trope covers any situation where a man believes that a child is his love-interest's by another man, then discovers that he is in fact the true father. Basically, it's the inverse of cuckholding.

* ''TheThornBirds''. Although in this case, Ralph adored Dane the moment he saw him (only after Dane's death does he admit that deep down, he probably knew all along), and instead harbors some resentment towards his mother Meggie, assuming that despite their passionate interlude (when Dane was conceived), she returned to her neglectful husband Luke.

Sub-trope of LukeYouAreMyFather. The distinguishing feature is that the parent originally believes the child is someone else's, and only discovers the truth later - sometimes not till after the child is dead! This is significant because in most examples of LukeYouAreMyFather, the surprise comes from the man learning that he is a parent, with the potential responsibilities that that entails. In ''this'' trope, the surprise comes from the man learning that he is the parent of a ''particular child''. This forces him to rethink his relationship with that child and also, potentially, with the child's mother.

* Inverted on DaysOfOurLives. Craig is floored when wife Nancy confesses that she had a teenage daughter (Chloe) that she gave up for adoption. He asks her how she could hide the fact that "they" had a child together (they'd been childhood sweethearts but lost touch when he left for college, reuniting years later) and is devastated when she tells him the girl is ''her'' daughter, not his, meaning that she had cheated on him. After a rough start, the three are able to bond as a family. Until the girl becomes ill and needs a bone marrow transplant, at which point Nancy confesses that she's the result of her rape. However, when the rapist's blood type doesn't match the girl's, Craig realizes that the young woman who he's grown to love as if she were his own daughter. . .''is'' his daughter.
