A new mom was put through a devastating experience, when she discovered her boyfriend had secretly married another woman while she was giving birth to their son
The aggrieved woman, 24-year-old Heather McGillion, had been working as a hotel entertainer when she met and fell for her colleague, 21-year-old Adonis Rodriguez.
Heather had gotten pregnant after they had dated for over one year, but had decided to temporarily relocate to her home in Johnstone, Renfrewshire, in Scotland, due to complications with her pregnancy.
While Heather was in labour trying to bring their son into the world, Adonis was busy marrying a German tourist identified as Julia.
Heather only found out after a friend reached out to her via Facebook. Here’s what Heather had to say:
“When I opened the message it felt like I had been hit by a double-decker bus. Adonis had his arms around a woman and she was wearing a wedding dress. It didn’t make sense and the more I thought about it, the more absurd it was. We had only been apart for a few weeks and there was no way Adonis could have met another woman and arranged a wedding in less than a month. For a second I didn’t twig who it was. Then to my horror I realized it was Julia. She was a German tourist who came to stay at the hotel. About a year before I had noticed Adonis had become friends with her on Facebook and they had been messaging each other. It was nothing sexual but it made me feel uneasy. But Adonis assured me there was nothing going on and when I discovered I was pregnant I forgot all about it.”
When Heather confronted Adonis via a phone conversation, he admitted to the marrying her, but claimed he only did it to obtain a visa.
When I phoned Adonis and asked ‘Why is Julia in a wedding dress,’ there was a pause and then he said: ‘Heather, I’m so sorry’.
“I hung up and burst into tears.”
Heather had later discovered Adonis had been hooking up with Julia after he found a job in another hotel. Julia had visited him more than four times, and they had planned for their wedding to happen when she was back in the UK.
Heather has since returned to Dominican Republic with their 3-month-old son, Diego, while Adonis is allowed visitation rights.
Aggrieved Heather had this to say:
She knew all about me and him and the baby but still married him, they had both planned it and I was the one not in the know. He treated me like royalty and he was so excited about our baby. I still can’t believe what happened. Adonis had given me the impression he wanted to be together forever but while I was giving birth to his baby, he was marrying another woman.”
Adonis has since apologized to the mother of his son, Heather, for dumping her while she was in labour, and for seeing Julia behind her back.
Here’s what Adonis said:
“Yes I’m married, Julia is my wife. I was still with Heather when I married her. I want to say I’m so, so sorry to Heather about this because Heather has my little baby and I want to see Diego
