Man devastated after discovering the real father of his daughter is a 13-year-old boy his wife was babysitting
Daniel Robbins remarked how 'everything I cherished was taken away' after his wife Leah Cordice, 20, was found guilty of having sex with a child
A heartbroken man has opened up about the moment he discovered that the biological father of the baby he thought was his was, in fact, a 13-year-old boy.
Daniel Robbins remarked how "everything I cherished was taken away" after his wife Leah Cordice, 20, was found guilty of having sex with a child, The Sun reports.
Leah was 17 when she began having sex with the boy, and it continued after she turned 18. Meanwhile, Robbins got married to her before the baby was born and believed the baby was his.
However, DNA tests would later prove the boy was "14 million times more likely than not" to be the biological father of Leah's child.
“It hurts like hell. I had an amazing life," Robbins told The Sun. “Everything was going so well. I had a secure job, a nice place, a good relationship, and a beautiful daughter. All of a sudden, everything I cherished was taken away — my child, my wife, my home, my job."
“What do I have left? It’s heartbreaking," he continued. “I did not plan to become a husband and father so young but at the time I was sure about what I was doing, I was confident. I couldn’t see myself with anyone else. I trusted Leah, she trusted me and she was pregnant. I thought, if I am going to do this, why not do it properly? Why not start our own family?”
According to the report, Leah is expected to be sentenced sometime later this week.
The married nursery worker regularly engaged in sexual intercourse with the 13-year-old boy before eventually having his baby.
It began after Leah allegedly walked into the teenager's bedroom one night when he was playing computer games. She proceeded to seduce him, pull down his trousers, and started having sex with him.
After that encounter, the duo continued to have sex for at least twice a month for a year before she gave birth to a baby girl.
While Cordice continued her sexual relationship with the teenager, she married her long-term boyfriend, who believed the child was his.
The Windsor, Berkshire native was forced to take a pregnancy test after the teenager's mother grew suspicious and called the authorities.
During interrogation, the boy told authorities how Cordice revealed she was pregnant by showing him an app on her phone, which indicated she had conceived the first time they had sex. It is unclear how she knew the boy.
In July 2018, Cordice was arrested at her home. When interviewed by authorities under caution, she denied any sexual contact with the boy.
"He has always had a crush on me and would always make inappropriate remarks and do inappropriate things such as grab me and annoy me," she said in a prepared statement at the time. "We did not have sexual contact."
But the DNA test that followed proved that the boy was, in fact, the father of her newborn daughter.
“It totally traumatized me," Robbins said of the discovery. "Having the baby taken away, finding out she was not mine.”
Despite the crime, he insists he doesn't want to see Leah behind bars.
