Maury Povich announces the creation of a home paternity test kit company

Former daytime talk show host Maury Povich is gearing up for his next adventure: home paternity test kits.

Povich, who retired from his talk show last year, told TMZ on Friday that he was starting a DNA paternity testing company called The Results Are In — a nod to the phrase he was saying about “Maury” before revealing the results of the paternity test.

“I’ve been in the paternity testing business for over 20 years, so I know exactly what’s going on and how we can help people who are looking for fathers, fathers who are looking for children, fathers who don’t think ‘they’re the dads and the dads who think they’re the dads,’” Povich told TMZ in a video interview. “And we can unite families after a long time.”

Povich explained that his business manager approached him with the idea after his retirement, adding that the kits would go through DNA Diagnostics Center – the same company that performed tests with a “99.9% accuracy rate. on “Maury” for more than two decades.

The tests, he said, will be sent to the DDC lab and within two or three days people can receive confidential results.

The DDC said in a 2011 blog post that it had conducted more than 3,000 tests for the show since it began working with “Maury” in 1998. Povich’s talk show ended last September, but continues to air in syndication.

“I have seen with my own eyes how DNA testing can change lives and bring families together,” Povich said in a statement to TMZ. “With ‘The Results Are Here,’ we’re making it easier and more affordable than ever to get the answers people need.”
