In 1968 the then-32-year-old Darin discovered the woman he’d been calling
Sis all those years was actually his mother (and the woman he thought was
his deceased mother was in fact his grandmother). Darin had been
contemplating a career in politics, which prompted his “sister” to come
clean about the circumstances of his birth.
