It's not always kids who wind up reeling when they discover the people they believed to be their parents aren't actually their parents -- biologically speaking. TV dads often get blindsided with parentage reveals too.
In some instances, characters find out they're the father. Other times, a TV dad discovers his child(ren) aren't biologically his after all. Most of the time it's because their partner had an affair. However, time travel and other sci-fi wackiness have been known to cause unexpected parentage twists too.
