Woman Finds Out Dad of Her 3 Kids Is Her Cousin after 17 Years Together
The news of discovering a shocking truth about one’s significant other can be a devastating blow to anyone, but what if that truth involves a familial connection? This was the case for a New Jersey woman.
Celina Quinones discovered something shocking about her beloved husband of 17 years and the father of her three children.
The revelation left many wondering about the couple, and as the news spread, opinions about what Celina should do next poured in from all sides.
A TikTok video by Celina went viral after she revealed the consequences of a simple decision she made in 2016.
Celina decided to delve into her family tree and took a DNA test, not expecting to unearth a life-changing piece of information.
Many users condemned their relationship and had much to say about their actions and decision to stay together.
Celina shared a connection with her husband, Joseph, and it came as a “devastating” blow to the couple. She recalled feeling shocked, even wondering whether she and her partner should be together.
After many years of marriage, the couple learned they were cousins. Celina was “freaked out” and didn’t know what to do next.
The duo took time to process the newfound information and close family ties before they made a bold decision—it wasn’t well-received by many netizens.
Despite their connection as cousins, Celina and Joseph decided to stay together because they loved each other and their three beautiful children. The mother noted:
“My kids and my husband are my everything – and we looked past it.”
Given their uncanny physical resemblance, netizens wondered how the couple did not realize or suspect their connection earlier. Someone asked:
“They literally look similar – how did they not know?”
People also stated that the mother should have kept the news private. But Celina hit back at the trolls, defending her relationship and the choice to speak out about it.
She refused to divorce her spouse because they were related and informed people their kids were perfectly healthy, with ten toes and ten fingers.
The mother told her children about the discovery of her “cousband” and refused to keep any secrets from them.
By sharing the shocking information, Celina hoped to encourage other couples to get DNA tests to avoid potential surprises. She concluded:
“I wouldn’t change it for the world. Cousband and wife for life! There is a reason why good couples look alike. I am just over here raising awareness.”
The duo accepted their connection and decided to stay together. But while the fact that they are blood relatives did not change their love for each other, the news still sparked a lot of controversies online.
