A scorned woman has gone viral after claiming that she busted her husband of ten years for cheating by reading his name in a local newspaper announcement that was celebrating the arrival of his second child with ‘some other female’.
Ami Addison, 47, from Pennsylvania, shared her shocking divorce story in a series of TikTok videos in which she alleged that she discovered her now-ex-husband had been having a lengthy affair just days before their ten-year wedding anniversary when she opened the newspaper and saw the news of his baby’s arrival.
‘So about a week before our tenth wedding anniversary I was in my office looking through the newspaper,’ the ER nurse began her video – which she posted in response to another user’s call for stories about cheating spouses.
‘At that time in the newspaper, they would publish birth announcements [with] the parents’ names, sex of the baby, date they were born, what hospital. So I see my husband’s name and some other female’s name. I knew it was his name because it’s an unusual name.’
Shock: A woman has gone viral after claiming that she busted her cheating husband by reading a local newspaper birth announcement celebrating his baby with another partner
Say what? Ami Addison, 47, from Pennsylvania, opened up about the incident in a TikTok video, in which she recalled the moment she says she saw the birth announcement
Ami says she visited the hospital website in order to find more details, explaining that the facility would regularly post pictures and information about newborn babies – and it was there she learned that her husband had not only welcomed a baby boy ‘days prior’, he had also had a daughter with the other woman more than a year before.
‘So I look at the hospital website = where they would also post pictures of new babies – typed in his name, and her first name, sure enough they had a baby boy a few days prior,’ she said.
‘But not only that, they had a baby girl about a year and a half before that. So yeah, that’s how I found out I was being cheated on.’
Ami’s video was met with shock and outrage from her fellow TikTok users, with many begging the mom to share more information about how she confronted her husband and questioning whether or not she was still with him.
In a series of 20 follow-up clips, she shared further details about the days after her discovery, explaining that she did indeed confront her husband about his affair – but only after she had ‘got her ducks in a row’ to ensure that her three kids were safe and out of their home beforehand.
Adding insult to injury: The mother – who shared three kids with her husband – says she learned that the newborn was actually her husband’s second child with his mistress
‘Obviously I was very upset, but also mama didn’t raise no fool so I wanted to make sure that I had all of my ducks in a row before I confronted him with the information that I knew,’ Ami shared in a second clip.
‘So this happened on a Wednesday that I found out. I didn’t say anything to him on that Wednesday, not one word. As difficult as that was.
‘Thursday, he got up up and left for work. He worked “overtime” on Thursdays, which I’m sure meant spending time with his other family.’
After her husband left for work, Ami got her three kids packed up for elementary school, and it was only then that she started getting herself ready to leave.
‘I told [my kids] to not take the bus home from school, that I was going to pick them up,’ she said. ‘I packed up all of their clothes, I packed up as many clothes as I could fit in my car and I went and checked into a hotel.’
Take that! After sharing her initial post, Ami was flooded with questions – which she proceeded to answer in a further 20 videos, revealing in the final clip that she has remarried
Revenge? She confessed that she actually married a man who her ex-husband new – however things with her new partner, whose name is Reggie, appear to be going much better
Once she had set herself and her kids in a hotel, Ami took the chance to do some research on the woman that she believed her husband had been having an affair with and she managed to find out where she lived.
‘I found out where this girl lived and some more deets about her,’ the nurse recalled. ‘So on Thursday after I settled into the hotel, I drove past this girl’s house, and lo and behold, his car was sitting in front of her house.’
Seeing his vehicle at the other woman’s home was the breaking point for Ami, who says she then returned to her own house, packed up all of her husband’s clothes – and then dumped them on top of his car in the middle of a rainstorm.
‘So I went back to my house, I packed up all of his clothes in trash bags, as much as I could fit in my [car],’ she shared. ‘And I drove it over to this girl’s house and dumped all of his clothes, suits, Jordans, lots and lots of clothes all over his car – mind you, it was pouring down raining.’
To really hammer her point home, Ami completed the pile of clothing by adding a cherry on top: an anniversary card.
