* A rare female version can be found in UminekoNoNakuKoroNi when it's confirmed in Ep 8 that [[spoiler: Battler's biological mother isn't Asumu but Kyrie. A baby switch was made by Rudolf when Asumu's child was a stillbirth and he thought it would be easier since he and Asumu was married while Kyrie was a lover.]]

* 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.
