Heather McGillion, 24, was shocked when she discovered that her boyfriend secretly married another woman. And he was getting married to the other woman while McGillion was giving birth to their child.
McGillion, from Johnstone, Renfrewshire, in Scotland, met Adonis Rodriguez, 21, in the Dominican Republic while they both worked as hotel entertainers, according to Daily Mail. Within a year she became pregnant and the two made plans for a family life together on the Caribbean island.
She returned to Scotland to give birth to their son, Diego, because she had some pregnancy complications, but Rodriguez was denied a visa, reports the Mirror. While in Scotland, a friend sent her a Facebook message showing her a picture of Rodriguez marrying another woman.
“When I opened the message it felt like I had been hit by a double-decker bus,” said McGillion.
“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.”
She found out Rodriguez’s new wife was a 31-year-old German tourist, Julia, according to the Mirror.
“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,” recalled McGillion. “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.”
McGillion called Rodriguez to confront him about his infidelity and he confessed to everything, according to Daily Mail.
She found out that Rodriguez was meeting up with Julia when he moved to find work at another hotel.
The new mother also noticed in the wedding photos that Julia had undergone a drastic makeover.
“She was unrecognizable from the slightly plump, mousy woman I had seen on Adonis' Facebook page,” said McGillion.
“In fact she now looked like me. She had lost weight and dyed her hair to look just like me, only with added wrinkles.”
McGillion has since returned to the Dominican Republic with Diego, who is now 3 months old, and is allowing Adonis to visit him.
