Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare and I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Do you mean it says there is a 98.6% chance that he is the father?
Is another family member a possible father?

Hi
Unless you reproduce the full sentence I cannot be certain -but from what you have said it is in fact more likely that not that you are the father of the child UNLESS another potential father is VERY closely related to you
I hope that this is of assistance please ask if you need further details
