New Over-the-Counter DNA Paternity Test Answers the Question: Who’s Yo’ Baby Daddy?

It’s a question many “active” pregnant women, especially on soap operas, have asked themselves:

Who’s the Baby Daddy?

It’s okay if you’re not sure.  Women are expected to juggle the demands of home and work — how can we possibly keep track of all of our sexual partners on top of that?  Or under that.   Or behind that.  Whatever the case may have been; that’s for you and The McKinley Pub men’s restroom stall to know.

Fortunately, the first over-the-counter paternity test kit will be on sale within weeks to answer any lingering uncertainty.  For just $50, plus $200 to receive the results, confused moms and potential fathers can get a collection kit — with which they swab the inside of the cheeks of the child, dude and, optionally, the mother — to determine Baby Daddy status without the hassle of going to court or Jerry Springer.

The test is 99.9 percent reliable… which is more than we can say for that condom that was used!

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)

  • is this available in canada?? it cost 800 dollers to get mom, deadbeat dad and baby tested.

  • This is not only happening in the UK. IDENTIGENE is proud to sell DNA Paternity Testing Kits in local CVS, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, and other stores in the USA. These kits are $29.99 and another $119.00 to process in the laboratory. For more information visit our website. Thank you.

  • This is ridiculous. This won’t count in a court of law in my state, and it probably won’t in yours, either! If you are trying to establish paternity (or refute presumptive paternity) you really do need a “chain-of-custody” type lab to do the tests. And in my state, there’s a statute of limitations on that, so you’d better get crackin’!
