“Over the past 25 years, Oprah has met many people. I thought I had seen everything, but the miracle of miracles,” said Winfrey in a trailer for the show Monday, which would together to the tune of half-sister of her mother, gave up for adoption 50 years ago.
Winfrey said she was “literally shattered” when she learned last year that she had a sister.
The two women were reunited with their mother’s house on Thanksgiving Day, the celebration of the United States in November, when families traditionally gather.
Sister named Patricia was born in 1963 in the midwestern state of Wisconsin. Winfrey was eight years old and living with her father in Tennessee at the time.
Patricia was given up for adoption by Winfrey’s mother and lived in foster care until she was seven, when she was finally adopted.
She became a mother for the first time in 17 years, and six years later had a second child. Patricia, whose name was not given, was a single mother worked two jobs to support her children.
Patricia discovered two years ago she and Winfrey are sisters, but the TV presenter presenter only learned the news late last year.
Oprah was due to reveal her secret family on Monday on her show, which airs in 145 countries around the world.
