This sad story just gets sadder.
We've already told you the tragic news of Adrian Peterson losing his two-year-old son after an alleged assault from the child's mother's boyfriend. But now we hear that there is even more tragedy to this story.
While Adrian has another young son, Adrian Jr., who is alive and well; he recently found out that he had this second young son.
The child's mother reportedly believed another man was the child's father and was pursuing a paternity matter with him. However, upon finding out that he was not the father, she allegedly turned to Adrian as he was also possibly the father.
We hear that Adrian stepped up and asked how he could help her out. Sadly, he was even allegedly planning a trip to South Dakota to meet the child. He ended up making the trip much sooner than expected because of the horrible attack.
As a result, his first meeting with his son was supposedly while the young child was in the hospital in critical condition.
We can't imagine going through something this horrible. Our thoughts are with Adrian and the young boy's loved ones during this difficult time.
