A stunned mother expressed her frustration after discovering her daughter's stepmom is pretending to be the child's biological parent in front of other parents at a dance class the child attends.

TikTok user Belle Blake (@mrsbelleblake) shared how upset she was to discover that the woman, who she names Stephanie, has been going around and disseminating this lie.

To make matters worse, Blake said that the woman has been not only pretending to be her daughter Delilah's birth mother, but that she even commandeered some of the stories of the kid's birth to use as their own. Numerous TikTokers who responded to her video seemed equally concerned about the incident.

Blake begins her video, which she records from the interior of her car, explaining the awkward situation that arose between her and the instructors at her daughter's dance school: "I just picked my daughter up from dance class and her stepmom has been telling everyone that she's her biological mom."

"Not just like oh yeah I'm Mom, like casually just in like the middle of, like, nothing conversation of ... oh I'm the one picking her up, mm-mm. Her stepmom has been telling everyone that she is her biological mom. Like having conversations about when she was pregnant with her," she says, highlighting the troubling lie that the woman's been telling people at Blake's daughter's dance class.

The mom and TikToker began to break down how she made this discovery — which happened when one of "the other mothers" approached her and said, "you must be Delilah's stepmom."

Confused, she replied that she's Delilah's biological mother, not her stepmom who's been taking her to dance classes.

"I gave birth to her, weird. And she goes, 'What? No, no, no, Stephanie gave birth to her, Stephanie was telling us all about the preeclampsia that she had, she had a seizure after she was born...'"

The audacity of the lies seemed to be too much for Blake to handle emotionally as she began to start slamming her hand against the car's dash.

"This woman stole my birth story! My birth story! That I went through. She's out here telling people that she was pregnant with Delilah, and she had preclampsia. And she had seizures! She had to stay in the hospital with magnesium drip! Excuse me?" she says, chewing gum into the camera, a look of bewilderment on her face.

"You got to be joking me," Blake told the other mom at dance class. "And she goes no ... we've all heard about Stephanie and how she gave birth to Delilah. And I was like ... Stephanie wasn't even in the picture when Delilah was born. Like Stephanie was in high school when Delilah was born," she says into the camera.

"But I can't believe that somebody would actually do that. She went on to tell people how she picked out the name. Delilah. Like talked about, how ... this woman is like trying to be me," Blake says, slightly smiling into the camera, before going onto explain that she and her husband, at the time, were swinging on a hammock in their backyard "on a nice fall day," when they came up with the name Delilah.

The song "Hey There, Delilah" ended up playing on the radio and that's where they got the idea for their baby's name. When Stephanie arrived at dance class, Blake says that she told the other moms that this is how she came up with the name, and the TikToker speculates that she must've heard her ex-husband say it.

"But I'm fuming, fuming," she says before rolling her eyes as the video cuts out.

One commenter wanted to know how this type of mix-up even occurred, writing that since Blake was involved in the dance class, how could other moms not know that she was Delilah's biological mama?

She explained that the custody schedule basically dictates who is picking up/dropping off Delilah, which means that the days she has dance class means that certain teachers and other moms at her daughter's activity might interact with Stephanie and Blake's ex more than Blake herself, depending on the schedule that's been set up.

There were a number of folks who seemed to share in Blake's shock and outrage over discovering that her daughter's stepmom appropriated her birth story and has been masquerading as her real mother: "Yeah and that’s how Delilah’s stepmom got banned from all her extracurriculars…." one person wrote.

Another penned: "That’s like stalker behavior."

While one person replied: "Umm that’s actually scary."

There were other users on the app who remarked that they believed the behavior was legitimately terrifying and that Blake should be considering any and all eventualities that could pop up as a result of the stepmom's assertion she is the little girl's biological mom.

"Bring in her birth certificate and show all of them you are the actual mom. They could be potential witnesses when you have to go to court over it."

Another person wrote: "Delilah would not be stepping foot into her dad's house again."

One commenter also thought this was a big deal that should be addressed immediately: "Go through the family courts, get custody changed and file a restraining order."
