Though she didn’t disclose with whom, the talk show titan shared that it involved something she’s learned about recently and is only known to her closest friends.
“I thought I’d seen it all. But this, my friends, is the miracle of all miracles,” Winfrey said in show commercials. Having performed numerous family reunions on her talk show over the years, Winfrey stressed the impact of her own family reunion by having the word “miracle” appear on screen.
“I was given some news that literally shook me to my core. This time, I’m the one being reunited,” she shared. “I was keeping a family secret for months, and on Monday you’re going to hear it straight from me.”
BlackVoices.com has learned that Winfrey’s big announcement is that sometime around Thanksgiving of last year, she discovered she had a half-sister she never knew about.
The 56-year-old television mogul had believed for years that she was her parent’s last living child – younger siblings Jeffrey and Patricia are both deceased.
