She Went Looking For Her Mum…And Discovered She Has a Child for Her Brother



Brazil Siblings & Couple - August 2014 - 01
A Brazilian couple recently got a shocking revelation.

39-year-old Adriana and 37-year-old hubby Leandro have been together for seven years and have a six year old daughter together.

In a chat with Daily Mail Online, they both revealed they had been trying to get in touch with their mothers – who were both called Maria, and had both abandoned them when they were babies.

The strange coincidence wasn’t a dead giveaway for the couple as they never imagined it will be the same woman.

At the age of 1, Adriana was left in the custody of her father, while Leandro at the age of 8 discovered his mum abandoned him as a baby and the woman he thought was his birth mother, was his step mother.

Adriana, a cosmetics saleswoman, later married. She was married for 15 years and had three children. After splitting with the man, she moved to her hometown where she met Leandro and they fell in love.

In July, Adriana decided to use the help of a radio station in their town to help announce the search for her mum. They reunited on air.

At the end of the interview on the show which helps reconnect lost relatives, the mother revealed she had a son named Leandro.

Adriana soon discovers it is the same man she is married to and weeps uncontrollably, “I don’t believe that you’re telling me this. Leandro is my husband. Now I’m scared to go home and find out that Leandro doesn’t want me any more. I love him so much.” she said.

They revealed they will stay together despite discovering they are siblings. “Only death is going to separate us. All this happened because God wanted it to happen. Of course it would have been different if we had known all this before, but we didn’t and we fell in love.” she concludes.

Such a sad situation! It’s hard to imagine how they feel or what one would do in such a situation. What’s your take BellaNaijarians?

    If they are really brother and sister, it’s very unhealthy for them to remain together. In the time of ignorance, their mistakes would have been pardoned but knowing what they do now, they should separate. The relationship amounts to incest and if they still want children, it can result to abnormalities in their offsprings.

    Since they already know, they should separate. Simple!

    Is their daughter disabled or is she abnormal? So its only now that they know that they will have abnormal kids. I feel sorry for them, its easy to stay here and give advice. I jst don’t think the relationship will be the same. Both of them should decide what is right for them but should put their kid into consideration, really tough spot to be in.

      We don’t know that and can’t tell because that detail want given in the story but these are not the kind of chances one should take. It’s just like saying that 2 unknowing AS partners that got married and had a first child that is AA should go ahead and have as many more children as they want after they have found out just because the first one came out with the best chromosome combination. In this case of both of them being siblings, no one can say for sure that all the children will definitely (not) be normal but the chances of this happening is very high.

      Again, taking into consideration the fact that the lady had been married before and had had children, they might not be planning to have more children (just to avoid whatever) but what kind of (sexual) relationship will they have with the knowledge they have? No matter how much 2 people love themselves, who can earnestly continuously sleep with the sister or brother without feeling weird? Eventually something would give on one or both parties. It’s a tough decision to make but prolonging it will only make things worse.

    So what happens to the child if they separate? Counselling is the best bet here.

    The real and hidden attraction was blood but the struggle to find this out led to genetic sexual attraction. Sad.

    It is hard to give opinions on this. This is the reason why the old school style of meeting that family before going into a sexual relationship is important.. I agree with you Anon.

    rotfl @sugarychicalert…your comment is soooooooooooo true.
    That aside, i can’t really drop an opinion, it’s such a sad story, crazy thing is one cant really say what will happen because Abraham and Sarah in the bible as i discovered today were step siblings. Now this doesn’t mean i support such. toooooooooooooo creeepy

    So sad but what’s more sad is that things like these will become more of a possibility in future. What with the new baby mama syndrome and the sexual indiscipline most young people exhibit these days. I’m very sure this is a very commom phenomenon in the US especially among the black community where young men are fathering children in almost every state they settle. Some dont even know they have kids in some places. This will be a regular tale in Nigeria in some few years time.

    When brotherly love turns to marriage unknown, the gods are not to blame, adriana now knows she is married to her brother, should she leave or stay?, things fall apart and the centre definitely cannot hold.

    Genetic Sexual Attraction. Studies have shown that siblings who don’t grow up together may develop an attraction if they meet as adults. Its an innate seeking someone like yourself. Most times they cant explain why the love/attraction is so strong.
    We say ‘ewww’ now, but it was quite the norm long ago in Egypt; that’s how inheritance was kept in the family, and rulers strengthened their claim to the throne.

    Game of Thrones… Brother and sister managed to make 2 Healthy looking kids (one of them was an insane lunatic though; ex-king of kings landing).
    Yes i know… it is random. Americans in the deep south do this all the time though, cousins, siblings…

    Hmmmm. Difficult situation by human culture and understanding. I do not know that God works in mysterious ways. He alone knows why and how they got be husband and wife and He can resolve whatever the issues are. Who knows if God has a purpose for it even as it appears to contradict His word.

    1. Game of thrones is fiction.
    2. As I understand it, they have different fathers. Doesn’t that reduce the risk of having abnormal children (case in point, their seemingly normal daughter)?
    3. You really do not expect a couple who have been together for such a long time to separate just like that. In Nigeria we encourage women to stay with their abusive partners, yet this is unspeakable.
