Two women in America who have been best friends for over 17 years just discovered that they are actually sisters.
KAMI learned that throughout the years, many people had been asking them if they were sisters because they look alike and similar in many ways.
According to the LADbible, 31-year-old Ashley Thomas and 29-year-old Toya Wimberly met when they were in 6th grade. However, they just figured out that they were biological sisters after almost two decades.
Ashley knew for 15 years that the man who stood up as her father growing up was just his stepdad and not his biological father. However, Toya’s father, Kennet Wimberly, has been there for her all her life.
As reported by WPVI-TV, the truth came out when Toya got engaged. After the photos of the engagement circulated on social media, a friend of Ashley’s late mother recognized Toya’s father. Kennet also said that he recognized the woman and the connections were made.
“I was hurt, but also happy to find out that this beautiful and successful young lady was my daughter," the father said.
Ashley, Toya, and Kenneth all went through a DNA test and it has been confirmed that Ashley and Toya are related by blood.
"I've been around him all my life and I never once thought he could be my dad,” Ashley said.
Through a Facebook post, Toya shared their amazing story and what she felt when she discovered the truth.
"After years of hearing 'Are y'all sisters?’, ‘Y'all look just alike' and us just saying 'NO' we are just best friends the truth finally aired that we are blood sisters!!!” she wrote on Facebook.
"That's why we're so similar, that's why we look so alike, that's why we've been inseparable since the 6th grade,” she added.
