Whatever Happened To Dom’s Young and the Restless Paternity Puzzle?

After months of hearing about nothing but Dominic, Dominic, Dominic on The Young and the Restless, now that biological dad Devon Hamilton has joint custody with Abby Newman Abbott Chancellor and Chance Chancellor, it feels like the tot has gone to where all good soap opera babies go — “upstairs” with the overworked nanny.

Young and the Restless Paternity Puzzle

Devon (Bryton James) sought custody after he donated bone marrow to save Dominic’s life. They were a perfect genetic match, so happy endings for all!

Follow the Y&R Science

Except for the minor scientific fact that it is actually less likely for a child to be a 100% match to their biological parent than it is for them to match a total stranger. The latter is just chromosomes coincidentally arranging themselves in the same way. The former, 50% is about as good as you can hope for because — biology.

Young and the Restless: Hint

At the time, we assumed it was the show’s way of planting the clue that Dom wasn’t actually Devon’s, after all. We eagerly waited for the big reveal. We are still waiting.

Y&R: Tell Me Who Are You?

So if Devon isn’t Dom’s father, who is? Stitch Rayburn pulling the old sperm switch-a-roo is the obvious suspect. But how about someone a lot less obvious. How about…Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso)?

Young and the Restless: Town Tradition

How the heck could that have happened, we can hear you screaming. And we’re answering right back — calmly — the same way that Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) ended up fathering Abby (Melissa Ordway), or Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) fathering Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor).

Genoa City sperm banks are constantly being robbed and/or mislabeling donations. Rey is a cop. He could be killed at any second. We can see him banking some sperm just in case. And we can see the lab messing up Mariah Copeland’s (Camryn Grimes) insemination.

And we can really see the truth coming out and Chelsea Lawson (Melissa Claire Egan) deciding that Rey’s baby should have been hers. After all, she’s convinced herself they were falling in love. She deserves this child. Now we have a story!

The Young and the Restless (YR) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes. For more about what’s coming up in Genoa City, check out all the latest that’s been posted on Y&R spoilers, and for an in-depth look at the show’s history, click here.
