A South African couple has had their promising new marriage and expecting birth of their first child errupt into family devastation (and worldwide internet gigglefest).
The couple, who met while in college, have found out in the days leading up to their wedding that they are actually brother and sister. The discovery happened when the two families came together for pre-wedding activities. The parents of the couple split when the son was two and the daughter a few months old. Neither were aware they may have had a sibling of the opposite sex, grew up separated between the parents and never had each other’s families meet while the two dated for five years.
The woman is eight months pregnant with their child said, “When I first saw him, we connected. We fell in love and since that day, we never looked back. All we wanted to do was just to have a family and many kids. So you can imagine how shocked we were when they broke the news. We are going to have a child together. We do not know what we will tell him when he grows up.”
It’s possible that he might want an explanation for his 3rd nipple and other deformities, and why mommy and daddy always dress as Luke and Leia.
