Nope, you're definitely wrong. There was no mention of the mother yet. In the episode that you think you're quoting was just replayed last Monday call The Wedding. At the end of the episode, Ted says the following lines:
For whatever reason, I had let myself believe that tonight would be a turning point. That this was the night my life, my real life, would finally begin. Funny thing is I was not totally wrong. Because that nightwas just beginning.
That's it. The episode ends.
