How Brendan Watkins claimed his birthright

Conversations (Brendan Watkins)


In this episode of Conversations, Brendan Watkins talks about his discovery that his birth mother was a nun and his birth father was a priest.

Brendan was 8 when he was told his was adopted (he grew up in Melbourne) – which made sense for him of why no one in his family looked alike.

In his 20s, Brendan began seeking out his birth parents. He was surprised to find out that his birth mother was 27 when she ‘gave him up’.

It took until 2018 before Brendan found out – via a DNA test – that he was “the son of a celebrated missionary priest.”
