Delta Goodrem's Devastating Family Secret Revealed

Delta Goodrem is one of Australia’s most loved performers and she has learnt a lot about her family in the last few weeks.

The 31-year-old has appeared on SBS program Who Do You Think You Are? and has learned about a devastating side to her great-grandmother Florence’s life.

On the show, she learns that Florence gave birth to an illegitimate son called Tom, who was fathered by Thomas Park, a man involved in 'multiple criminal convictions for larceny and fraud'. 

"It was like, did no one know this?" Goodrem said. "It was so fascinating to know Florence travelled with the theatre and that I had music firmly in my history."

When speaking to news.com.au about the show, Delta said that it took time for her and her mother Lea to ‘process’ the information,

'My parents taught me such a good value system… the fact that my mum’s father’s father was not a respectable man was confronting,' she added.
