Married Couple Discover They’re Brother And Sister
The Brazilian couple made the discovery when the woman went looking for her long-lost mother.
Adriana, 39, and her husband Leandro, 37, have been together for seven years and have a six-year-old daughter.
The Brazilian couple – who didn’t want to reveal their surnames – spent their lives trying to find their respective mothers, who were both called Maria, and had both abandoned their children when they were still babies…
Meanwhile, truck driver Leandro found out aged eight that his own mother had also abandoned him, and that the woman he knew as his mum was actually his step-mother.
The pair met for the first time ten years ago after Adriana’s marriage broke down and she moved back to her home town, and they soon fell in love and moved in together.
Still unable to forget the give up the search for her mother, last month Adriana decided to contact a a radio station in their town to ask for help – and this week the two were reunited live on air.
But at the end of the interview on Radio Globo’s ‘The Time Is Now’ programme, which specialises in finding lost relatives, the mother revealed she also had a son who didn’t know her, Leandro.
Adriana says, “We have so many plans together, nothing’s going to break us up, nothing.”
