'Two sides to every story': Kelly Kay slams late Spencer Webb's family for wanting her to take DNA test to prove paternity
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA: Instagram model Kelly Kay has been caught up in the middle of a paternity feud with the family of her late boyfriend, former Oregon Ducks college football player, Spencer Webb. Webb’s older brother, Cody, recently told Sacramento Bee that their family wanted Kay to take a DNA test to confirm if Webb is the father of her child but claimed that the model has been “unwilling to compromise.”
Kay welcomed her son with Webb, Spider, on March 30, 2023, after announcing her pregnancy in August 2022. The announcement came just a few days after Webb tragically died from a diving incident last July. Webb’s family is now questioning Kay about the late athlete being the father of her newborn child and claiming that she has not readily compromised with the DNA testing process. However, Kay refuted the claims and said that she already underwent testing while assuring that Webb is the child’s father.

‘Our family has doubts and concerns’
Webb’s family recently issued a statement expressing their doubts surrounding Kay’s pregnancy and the paternal identity of her newborn son. “Our family has tried to focus on our grieving process since the passing of our brother, son, and nephew,” the statement read. “We grieve both individually and as a family, trying to cope with this tragedy. In the first hours after Spencer passed, and only a few days after they met, Kelly began talking about the possibility of being pregnant,” it mentioned.
“Since Spencer isn’t able to handle this situation himself, we have tried to navigate this sensitive space as a family. That being said, our family has doubts and concerns regarding the paternity of this child for a multitude of reasons,” the Webb family explained. “Until this point, we’ve remained silent in hopes that a DNA test would confirm Spencer as the father. Unfortunately, Kelly has been unwilling to compromise regarding the manner in which the DNA test is collected,” they claimed.
“Due to the inability to agree on a suitable DNA collection process, we wanted to put together a statement and timeline to help provide the family’s perspective on these circumstances,” they continued. The statement included a timeline of Kay and Webb’s relationship. The latter’s family mentioned that Kay first met Webb 16 days before he died and the two first met in person less than a week before the fatal accident. They also said that the family has failed to reach an agreement on the parameters of the paternity test. The statement mentioned that the Webb family wished to conduct the test at a “neutral” site with somebody from their side present at the scene.
‘There’s two sides to every story’
Kay refuted the claims made by the Webb family through several Instagram stories posted on Friday, May 12. The model said that she already took part in a DNA test and stated that Spider was Webb’s son. “There’s two sides to every story and there’s a lot of family drama that I shouldn’t even have to bring up, its nobody’s business,” Kay wrote.
“I’m not trying to put my dead baby daddy’s family drama out there like that,” she added. “I have amazing relationships with Spencer’s mom and sisters. I worked with Spencer’s mom and an attorney to get a legal DNA test in order to get Spencer’s name on the birth certificate. We did that, me and his mom, and Spider did the DNA test,” Kay shared. “Obviously its his kid, you can look at him and tell it’s his kid,” she stated.
Kay also alleged that Cody, who is Webb’s stepbrother on his father’s side, held up the DNA testing but she was able to get it done through Webb’s mother. “Spencer’s brother, who can’t even give a DNA test because its not his full brother is trying to come for me,” she claimed. “That side of the family has been awful to me throughout my pregnancy and throughout this whole process,” Kay alleged.
“His mom’s side has been amazing and supportive and wonderful. It’s his brother on his dad’s side, who Spencer knocked out when at age 18 when he left him and didn’t like and had issues with, is the one who’s coming for me,” Kay mentioned. She also said that she is planning to sue the people involved for defamation and preparing to get a protective order against them.
