Oprah Winfrey has shared her big secret: she recently learned she has a half-sister she never knew about.
Winfrey made the announcement on Monday morning. She says she has a sister who lives in Milwaukee.
The sister, Patricia, was given up for adoption by Winfrey’s mother, Vernita Lee, shortly after her birth in 1963, USA Today reports.
According to the report, Patricia (whose last name was not revealed) shares on Monday’s “The Oprah Winfrey Show” that she lived in foster homes until she was 7, including some that were “not so good.”
