She said in subsequent interviews that she had told her son that Mr Abbott was his father. Mr O'Connor's reported response was: "Thanks for having me." The story had additional piquancy owing to the fact that the "son" was a soundman with the ABC in the parliamentary press gallery and had often worked side-by-side with his "father" with neither man realising their relationship.In the months before, a number of Government members started talking about looking into the issue of abortion but Mr Abbott denied his publicising of how he found his "son" was related to the issue.Mr Abbott said he spoke to Mr O'Connor late last week after he received news about the testing."It was something that, once Kathy had talked to me about it, we both decided that it was probably in Daniel's best interest if he knew who his dad was," he said."I really think that this is a matter for Daniel above all else.I have gone through 27 years of life convinced that I was Daniel's dad, but it appears that is not the case," he said.
"To find the boy I thought I had all those years ago and to go through a reunion and now to lose him like this is pretty shocking and I feel a bit numb about it all," he said. This story has certainly developed some pretty surreal twists." The story was broken in newspapers on February 20, after word was judiciously leaked that The Bulletin magazine's March 1 issue was to run a story "How I found my son" in Tony Abbott's "own words".The man told Ms Donnelly that Mr O'Connor closely resembled one of his other children.The four involved, Ms Donnelly, Mr Abbott, the unidentified man and Mr O'Connor, took DNA tests which determined the Health Minister was not the father."And I'm sorry that poor old Daniel has been dragged through the public spotlight as a result of a connection to me which it now appears was never the case." The story was broken on Channel Seven News last night with the revelation that another anonymous man had contacted Mr Abbott's then teenage girlfriend and the mother of his "son", Kathy Donnelly, claiming that he suspected he was Mr O'Connor's biological father.He had spoken with Ms Donnelly at her Port Hedland home in Western Australia after Mr Abbott received blanket coverage around the country last month for his heart-warming story of how he had found his "son".
