CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wi. (CNN) – Co-workers at a Wisconsin business discovered they’re more than just friends on the job. They’re actually father and son.

Nathan Boos was adopted as a baby, and he spent his entire life not knowing who his biological parents were.

Boos mother knew who his biological mother was, and soon discovered Boos was friends with his biological father on Facebook.

Boos says she went on Facebook and showed him the picture of his father. He was shocked to see his biological father is Robert Degaro, a truck driver who he’s worked with for the last 2 years.

Degaro was also shocked by the news. He says he and Boos’ biological mother divorced and he did not have contact information for Boos’ adoptive parents. Much less did he have any idea that he and his son worked together.

Degaro said the decision to put Boos up for adoption was a difficult one made due to financial struggles.

The two plan to continue growing the friendship they already started, now as father and son.
