The wild story was revealed in a TikTok by a woman named Keely, whose shocking admission has since gone viral with almost 7 million views.
In the video, Keely admitted to poking holes in her parent’s condoms after finding them on their nightstand.

Keely explained: “When I was a little girl, me and my best friend were in my mum and dad’s bedroom. And I don’t know how she knew, [but] there were some shiny packets on the nightstand.
“And she said what they were and told me what they were used for. And then there was a needle laying beside the packet. Me and my friend poked lots of holes in the packets.
“Then, six months later, my mum told me she was pregnant and I was so happy, but years later my mum still says, ‘I don’t know how she happened. We were so careful.’"
