The 47-year-old, who says he did not attend college or had ‘any tertiary education’, added that he takes the term as a ‘derogatory’ insult that someone describes as ‘average’.

And he admitted that while it was a lot to come to terms with at first, he appreciates the family he has today.

He added, “The woman I thought was my sister for 10 years was actually my mother.”

In a 2008 interview with ABC’s Talking Heads, David admitted that he was more shocked to find out the truth about his mother than to learn who his father is.
