Couple discover they are cousins after 17 years and three kids together (Video)
A happily married couple, Celina and Joseph Quinones, have just discovered that they are cousins after taking a family tree DNA test.
The pair, from Colorado, had been together for 17 years and had three beautiful children together when the wife, Celina, decided to dig into her family tree.
The mother-of-three had barely delved into her lineage when she discovered that her husband, Joseph, was her cousin.
Sharing her story via her TikTok handle, @realestatemommas, she described the moment she first discovered her husband was actually also her cousin.
According to her, she and her husband got married in 2006 and had three kids, only to find out years later that she and her husband are related.
“Married my husband in 2006. Not thinking anything of it we had three kids. Come to find out we were related and cousins.” She wrote.
Sharing the video, Celina urged other couples to check their heritage.
In a subsequent video, she revealed that her family has moved past the discovery since her children are not affected by any genetic disorders or abnormalities.
“This was three kids in that I found out we were related. I did my DNA test I think in 2016 and yeah it was devastating because I was like ‘babe we’re related are we even supposed to be together? This is weird’. It really freaked me out.
“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. My kids and my husband are my everything and we looked past it. All our kids have 10 fingers and 10 toes. It’s a good ice breaker lol.” She wrote.
