Although Jordan Adlard Rogers had had suspicions about his father’s identity for many years, he had never been quite able to dig out the truth. When a DNA test finally revealed all, however, the results brought with them a shocking piece of news: he was the heir to a $60 million fortune. And the story of how Jordan arrived at that point is quite something too.
Prior to finding out he was a millionaire, you see, Jordan had endured a tough upbringing that was almost totally at odds with the life he would inherit. He had been conceived during a brief relationship, while his mother, Julie, was a free spirit who wed another man just three weeks after her baby’s arrival. And Julie and her husband Gary Galloway would raise young Jordan for the first few years of his life in Cornwall, England.
These were fondly remembered times for Jordan, who had once assumed Gary to be his biological father. He told the Daily Mail in May 2019, “I adored Gary. One of my earliest memories is sitting on his shoulders and feeling so safe and happy. It was like a giant was carrying me around.” Yet life would eventually change for Jordan when Julie left Gary – and took her young son with her.
