This is beautiful.
After 34 years of not knowing who her real father is, Keyshia Cole finally has her answer. The singer posted a touching message to Instagram in which she revealed that the results of a paternity test have led her to her biological father. Cole posted a photo of her dad, and as it turns out, he’s actually a big name in the boxing world.
“While in NYC I was overwhelmed with emotion, I explained while on stage at the Barclays, the situation I was faced with at that moment, which was, my father and I finding our way to each other, After 34 years,” Cole wrote on Instagram. “I knew at that time, a paternity test was in place, well the results are in, and this is my father!!”
“His name is Virgil Hunter, and at this present time, I’m in Oakland spending time, getting to kno him!” Cole continued. “The story behind this is beyond me!!! God has his hands all in this!!! I’m so excited, So excited with taking this a day at a time!!!”
Virgil Hunter is a boxing trainer who has trained former world champions like Andre Ward, Andre Berto and Amir Khan. According to Cole’s post, she and Hunter are spending quality father-daughter time in Oakland, California, where Hunter seems to be based.
It sounds like so far, things are going well and we couldn’t be happier for the singer and her father. Family is a blessing, and these two finally get to enjoy that together. Congratulations, Keyshia and Virgil!
