Jarrel is taking matters into his own hands surrounding the paternity of baby Boston, as seen in an exclusive sneak peek at TLC’s “Rattled.”

The unscripted series’ Tuesday episode shows Jarrel swabbing Boston for a secret DNA test without cluing in Boston’s mom, Krystal.

“My life now with the baby, I couldn’t imagine my life without Boston, but I also realize this is a sad moment because it’s all starting from a completely broken and hard place,” he tells the camera. “It’s sad that my first experience as a father is with a person who’s not right for me and a baby who could potentially not be mine.”

As Jarrel swabs Boston, he assures her that he wants her to be his. He then gets emotional and decides that he doesn’t want to be filmed.

“It’s definitely painful to DNA-test your own baby, and it got me,” he says. “I didn’t want to have any cameras in there anymore.”

Produced by Flower Films’ Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen, “Rattled” features five couples dealing with the ups and downs of parenthood. 

“Rattled” airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
