Earlier this month, reports started swirling that Oprah Winfrey was surprised when her "secret son" approached her in New York City.
But now, the 61-year-old is coming clean about the mysterious man she ran into after a taping of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
The media mogul explains that the person who approached her, Calvin Mitchell, was NOT her birth son, saying:
"I met Calvin around the early '90s, I think it was 1992. I was doing a film for television called There Are No Children Here. We were shooting in the projects in Chicago and I was sitting on set during a break, and this cute little sparkly-eyed boy came underneath the yellow tape to hand me a soda. I was so charmed by him that I started talking to him about his family, his school life, and found out that he was in a situation where his mother didn't have a job and they were stuck in the projects."
Although she had no biological relation to Calvin, the TV personality revealed that she did express an interest in the young boy and his family.
She personally relocated them outside the projects, got his mother a job, and enrolled the child in a private school. However, the talk show host learned that he wasn't going to class, and decided to visit, in order to figure out what was wrong.
