Couple claims DNA test reveals switch at insemination clinic

SAN ANTONIO (KENS 5) -- A San Antonio couple who sought artificial insemination services at a Utah clinic 20 years ago have discovered that the husband's sperm was switched with someone else's.

After a difficult search, the couple found out who their daughter's biological father was -- and that part of the story is even more jaw-dropping.

For Paula, Jeff and their daughter, Ashley, it seemed like so much fun: For $99 and a cheek swab, a website would help them trace their lineage back 10,000 years.

But when Paula eagerly looked at those results, she found out that Jeff and Ashley were not related.

"I felt my stomach just drop," she said. "When I called my daughter and my husband's DNA up next to one another, they didn't share any DNA at all."

The revelation was hard to believe.

"I just thought to myself, 'Oh my god.' I was shaking."
