Upon meeting, the two felt a sexual attraction to each other and persued that relationship. Attributing their feelings to a syndrom called “Genetic Sexual Attraction” – seen in family members who meet for the first time as adults and have a not so platonic love for each other. Now, Penny’s pregnant and fear they may be torn apart by the law. Is this disgusting, or do you support their relationship? Check out the entire story after the jump and vote in our poll below!

A 28-year-old woman who tracked down her long-lost father last year has revealed that she is pregnant with his baby.

Penny Lawrence went in search of her father Gerry Ryan following the death of her mother and grandparents. The Irish Sun reports that she eventually found Dublin-born Ryan in Houston, Texas.

After meeting, the pair embarked on a sexual relationship which resulted in Lawrence becoming pregnant. However, they have insisted that their attraction is the result of Genetic Sexual Attraction, a term previously created by Barbara Gonyo to describe the feelings between parents and their children – as well as siblings – who meet as adults.

“We are not committing incest, but are victims of GSA,” Lawrence told the paper. “We’ve never experienced a father-daughter relationship, so we’re just like any other strangers who meet in adulthood.”

Ryan expressed fears that laws could see the couple separated, but added: “It’s no different than if I met Penny in a bar. I’d have fallen for her as I have now. It doesn’t feel [like] we are doing anything wrong.”

The pair said that if the three-month scan of their baby shows no birth defects, they will remain together and raise the child.

Discussing GSA, Lawrence explained: “I did some research into it. I was stunned that some brothers and sisters, daughters and dads and mothers and sons were actually living happily as man and wife.”

However, her father pointed out: “GSA isn’t recognised in court.”

  1. like it or not, give it any fancy name you want to justify it but its still INCEST if you can not put those feelings aside then dont see each other, now you two morons are adults and have made this choice but this CHILD HAS NOT

    you disgusting pieces of crud may you both crash and burn before you destroy the lives on innocent children

  3. I bet you’re the same dumbass that thinks it’s ok for two men or two women getting married or fucking is “ok”. I see no difference. They have also proven that incest does not cause birth defects or retardation. Yes it’s a little creepy to some but none of our damn business.

  5. Love apparently makes everything ok. It really doesn’t matter what you think. This is incest and wrong. I feel sorry for that kid. His/her life will be defined by this and we’ll get to watch it unfold on their reality show.

    I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.

  7. Yeah that’s typical. No one ever does anything wrong or disgusting. Were all just victims of some disease. Hell next he’ll be saying its a genetic condition. If I strangle this guy and tell him I’m victim of the “Hates stupid people” condition, is he gonna let me get away with it?

  8. bean on August 30th, 2012
  9. The disorder is legit, its the bond we have from being related and since your brain cant process properly you feel attraction. I understand it. BUT you dont act on these feelings. And you especially do NOT bring a child into THAT relationship, thats just horrible. Both of them are facing jailtime, and they should be.

  10. Ariel on August 30th, 2012
  11. Can you imagine the bullying and abuse the child will have from their peers? I’m of the school of do whatever you want but harm noone, but a child IS going to be harmed by this exchange. If they want to be together, fine but give the child up for adoption to a family who will love it and raise it without subjecting it to abuse by it’s peers.

  12. ash on August 30th, 2012
  13. That Father is really to be blamed…..he didn’t stick around for his Daughter’s up-bringing…I’m sure she had plenty of dreams of meeting her father and imagining him to someone special. Not only did he leave her while she was young, he came back around for another shot at damaging her. This man sickens me.

  15. why are they telling people!!!!!!????????

  19. Um, RED… inbreeding does in fact have side effects. Then again, if you’re in one of those states that bans evolution and genetics, this is all hogwash to you folk. But let me try to explain regardless. Inbreeding can unmask deleterious recessives; while the chance of a child inheriting a recessive from two non-related parents does exist, the probability of it happening with two related parents is astronomically higher, depending upon the degree of relation that the parents are. Cousins are a higher than random probability, but father and daughter is dangerous since that daughter inherited one copy of every gene from that father. So, in plain terms, daddy’s diddlin’ ways could pass on some bad juju to his new baby if, in fact, baby mama also passes down the same “wrong” genes. Or the baby is retarded because Jesus makes it so. Your call.

  20. Ella on August 30th, 2012
  21. lol he will leave her and her child will grow up fatherless just like her then go to try and meet her father/grandfather and he is going to screw her too. If she has a girl that is.

  22. awesome on August 30th, 2012
  23. incet is still incest, no matter what kind of you put on it

  24. Brigham on August 30th, 2012
  25. Why, shee-oot, Red! You best be gettin’ yar butt back home. That thar sister, er, wife of yers is fixin to knock ya one! Shee-oooot!!!

    It’s incest. Period. It’s illegal and disgusting. Only sickos will find this to be acceptable.

  26. BB on August 30th, 2012
  27. I am not for or against them. Maybe he never knew that he had a daughter. The girls mother may have not known who the father was at the time she got pregnant or lost contact with the guy.
    If you are never taught to do something you can never know to do or not to do something until you do it. They are not the first to do this and will not be the last. “Adam and Eve” had children and their children had children and so on and so forth so if there was ever such a event of “Adam and Eve” then at one time that is all there was incest. And just to make this shit clear I do not believe in any “God”

  28. DUCKY on August 30th, 2012
  29. Not only does he have sex with his daughter, he also apparently likes young girls. She is almost 20 years younger than him. This dumb ass mother needs to watch him around her baby. Her father is a predator and should have denied her advances as the parent in the situation.

  30. Ariel on August 30th, 2012
  31. First of all, if they were going to do this they should have kept it quiet. There’s no need to go out and broadcast this to the world.

    Second, I don’t think incest is wrong if all parties involved are consenting. Sure their child is going to have a rough life now because they blabbed, but it was their decision.

  32. Zero on August 31st, 2012
  33. Its the kind of ick factor I don’t want to think about but they are consenting adults so they will do what they do. Is it really the laws place to punish consenting adults I would understand if she was a child. But really they both adults and understand the situation they are entering. I feel sorry for the child though because it will most likely be born with genetic problems.

  34. It aint going to lick itself on August 31st, 2012
  35. Whether they have a sickness or if it is just pure incest, IMO it is wrong. Why the heck would you sleep with you biological daughter? Then there is the age difference. WOW this guy could not land a woman his age? Just imagine explaining this to the child. I fell real bad for the child, he/she will grow up knowing that his/her dad had intercourse with his dad’s daughter to conceive him/her. What a mess up situation. :(

  39. Daddy Grandpa!

  40. BBB on August 31st, 2012
  41. They need to both be locked up in separate asylums and never let out. The kid will be born with severe problems but hopefully can be adopted into a family that will never tell them the truth. (And BTW Ella I believe in God, not evolution, and I also know it’s a fact that insect leads to retardation and other problems.) It’s sick, it’s wrong, and they should be ashamed of themselves.

  42. Jami on August 31st, 2012
  43. I really feel for the child in this situation. We can all argue about incest or a mental disorder or whatever, the fact is, nobody thought about consequences and that child will be the innocent victim in all this.
    I suppose the child will probably call them Mommy and Daddy. It’s crazy to think that the mother is the child’s half-sister and the father is the child’s grandfather. Wow. Nobody thinks of this shit?!?!?!?!

  44. FancyPants on September 1st, 2012
  45. i don’t really have an opinion on what they did.. but what’s done is done, there is a child on the way who, while he/she may have loving parents will have a very hard life, even without any genetic defects the child is always going to be attached to the stigma ‘your daddy is also your grandpa” the child will never be able to escape this. that in itself is enough to cause concern . can this child ever have a truly happy and fulfilled life with something this big hanging over their head?

  47. Today on Jerry Springer…

    No wonder this world is headed to Hell with a quickness… some of you worthless fuckers actual fuck your kids!!

  53. so that’s where jami came from?

  54. loki on September 2nd, 2012
  55. If they both knew going in of their relationship then this is just sick. What kind of a scumbag would screw his own daughter? And growing up fatherless must have had some serious psychological effect on her too. SMDH

  56. Kessog on September 2nd, 2012
  57. I know this is a controversial thing to say but… Just because you feel like you love somebody doesn’t mean you HAVE to marry them, date them, sleep with them. Also, just because you’re attracted to someone doesn’t mean you HAVE to have sex with them. I mean please. There is this thing called discretion and this other thing called self control. With several billion people around odds are you’ll be attracted to someone else at some point.

  58. blarney on September 2nd, 2012
  59. That is absolutly gross…anyone who thinks and says this is ok is just as sick. Blarny’s comment is not related to the article..what is wrong with people who can’t stay foccused on the topic?

  60. angela on September 2nd, 2012
  61. blarney shut up seriously.

  62. I.C.E on September 3rd, 2012
  63. Angela is just an idiot. How did you not see how his comment was related to the topic? WOW. And this story is just completely messed up. They need LOTS of therapy!

  64. Me on September 3rd, 2012
  65. Loki – I was thinking the same thing.

  66. Odin on September 4th, 2012
  67. there is a couple, brother and sister, (cant remember where now) and their mother sprung them in bed, she reported them to the cops and they were arrested…they were forced to live apart until the court case and when it came up they were allowed to live together but were told they could NOT have sex and im sure they will follow that condition..thank god they cant breed or some poor child will suffer the consequences, i think they should be arrested and sent to jail

  68. Jeannine on September 4th, 2012
  69. Reds a dumb fuck. Incest does in fact lead to problems serious ones, regardless of species.Look up king Tut the Spanish royal family the Filipino royal family English bull dogs, the cheetah and about fourty thousand other examples.Open a book thats not fiction like your bible Red..dumbass.

  70. Reverand Blacksheep on September 4th, 2012
  71. Incest most definitely leads to severe problems in the offspring. You can google this subject in anthropology if you need to; or you’ll also find information regarding this with animal breeding.

    Beyond that, if this man is the woman’s father, he should have been responsible in that role. For him to just go along with this proves he’s one twisted individual. It’s not like the world isn’t full of women he could have dated, and she was the only female on Earth. As for her, the same thing applies. I don’t care what they “feel” because we aren’t enslaved to our feelings; that is just a lame excuse. I do hope that the child is removed from them permanently with no visitation, because they are going to be telling the child the story and the child is going to get mentally messed up over it all.

  72. Hap on September 5th, 2012
  73. P.S. re the “Adam and Eve’s children thing” — there are places in scripture that state that there were other people. Remember that Adam and Eve were in a particular location, the Garden of Eden, and that it was being guarded by angels, and stood at the head of four rivers that flowed out into the world. Who were the angels guarding Eden from? The serpent was already in Eden, so it can’t be that. And if Eden was comprised of the entire Earth, then where were these rivers going? So, if you are basing arguments on this point, you might want to do some bible research into the topic.

  74. Hap on September 5th, 2012
  75. As someone who was adopted at birth, this disturbs me greatly. I found both parents in adulthood and I cannot imagine having ‘genetic sexual attraction’. That’s not to say I don’t acknowledge its existence, but upon finding your father, whether you knew of him growing up or not, and making the step from thinking ‘father’ to ‘sex’ is very very wrong. There’s a biological and evolutionary reason why we don’t procreate with people who have the same genes, and it is to introduce genetic diversity. If we don’t have that then the race will eventually die out because of all the recessive disorders that will continually be unmasked.
    There are many isolated communities that have stagnant gene pools and disorders such as huntington’s chorea proliferate at massively increased incidences.
    Dress it up as you like, father-daughter relationship’s are incest, it doesn’t matter what the circumstances. That both think it is acceptable is even more worrying. Think of it like this. If, as a society, we look upon an absent father having a relationship with his new found daughter as ok, where is the line drawn? At the baby being 1 year when daddy leaves? 2? 5? Think of your own child. Would you want him/her sleeping with his/her father? Society and genetics has rules for very good reasons, incest and inbreeding is never ok.

  77. What I don’t understand is how 139 Votes were for “No, they’re in love and that’s okay”????

  78. Jeff on September 7th, 2012
  79. Incest can lead to serious issues and that baby will likely be born with some sort of physical or mental disability. And how will the child feel when they find out that their dad is also their granddad? And their mother is also their sister? How selfish of them!

  80. pandabear on September 10th, 2012
  81. Notice how RED the commenter who says their incest is okay, also attacks gay marriage… Rednecks, gawd. O.o

  82. whatthefred on October 10th, 2012
  83. Studies have shown that incest does affect the offspring. There is a reason why humans do not procreate with people who have similar genes. @RED, step out of your little closet, this is the real world. Gay marriages have been accepted (mostly) and incest does affect offspring. This article disturbs me greatly because whether or not she grew up knowing her father or not, she should not have sex with him. He is her father, for god’s sakes! So long as she knew that he was her father, she should not sleep with him. How the 2 words ‘father’ and ‘sex’ link up is a mystery to me. I just don’t understand people these days. Their minds are seriously fucked up.

  84. Shanna on December 6th, 2012
  85. for the sake of argument, although i disagree with their relationship, i wonder how many accidental couples of come from a similar circumstance. for example, if a man makes frequent deposits and the sperm bank he could have 100s of children wandering around that he has no idea are his; and could potentially fall in love with one of them unknowing that it is his child….does that make it incest? Is it only incest if it is knowingly entered into? Just some food for thought. I think because she went in search of her father and knew it was her dad that incest most definitely applies.

  86. kristin on December 11th, 2012
  87. there is no words that can describe this it’s sick then to bring an innocent baby into it yes he is her father but they are both adults n should have thought it is them that knew wot they was doing when they concieved she might have been over 20 but to me he is one sick pedo n the child service’s should take this poor baby out of this situation i hope they see this wake up n grow up u horrible old man n u silly little girl dont put it down to illness just stupidness

  88. Roxanne on December 19th, 2012
  89. it’s really hurting me, when i listen this…. how is this possible ?? they both r stupid, okay if this girl birth a girl baby, then baby’s father(grand-father),fuck her when she will adoult?? bcoz he is a bastard guy…. goto hell… :(

  90. punni on December 20th, 2012
  91. Well, only in America… What can you do, americans love to FUCK…

    All the time!!!

  92. carry miles on December 26th, 2012
  93. These two “adults” disgust me. How can they both think that doing something like this is okay? Who cares if its illegal… The whole principal of it is wrong! Knowingly having intercourse unprotected, bringing a child into this world. The child is the victim in this situation and I hope that, that child is immediately taken away from them. The fact that they BOTH knew that they are father & daughter and could no demonstrate some sort of self control is beyond me. This entire situation sickens me. What is this world coming to? Seriously !?

  94. Meeeee on December 28th, 2012
  95. 312 people think this is okay… Apparently, they’re incestuous freaks like these 2. Why in the world would they think having a sexual relationship is okay, let alone bring in a defenseless child? If they even do have a normal child carried to full-term (which I highly doubt is possible), then that child will be severely ridiculed and abused by other people because his/her parents are father & daughter. Goddamn, that’s just the most vile thing. Let’s hope that they can never have children, learn that this relationship is wrong, and find other people their own age and unrelated. Let’s also hope that society can make people like RED extinct…

  96. Meow on December 28th, 2012
  97. i think that its not their fault if ever it happens. this way but as a christian we ae all know that this relation cannot e accepted by god…to continue…i think its worse than ever…

  98. bishhh on December 29th, 2012
  99. Ya’ll some nasty ass mo’fos .
    How would you do that

  100. danielle on January 1st, 2013
  101. I personally think its a weird, but we see it in animals all the time and its even presented in the Christian Bible. Lot had children with both of his daughters after YHWH killed his wife and he’s a respected profit. So I guess it’s not a new thing

  102. Lawrence on January 5th, 2013
  103. For all of you spouting out religious stuff, doesn’t the bible say he without sin can cast the first stone?? No one here should say anything condemning or degrading, cause none of us have the right to. Their sin is their sin, and they’ll deal with that when their time comes. As for the baby, she will always be watched over. God gives his hardest trials to his strongest people, and everything will work out as it should. The best anyone could do is provide support to a child that did not choose his/her parents lifestyle.

  104. RebekahSarai on January 9th, 2013
  105. this guy fucks the mom and his daughter! someone fuck him please.

  106. king kong on January 24th, 2013
  107. This is immoral and gross although it is their life. Incest is incest and it is warned against in the bible. and yes it can cause genetic problems just not all the time. look at the old dupont family.

  108. Aurora on January 30th, 2013
  109. Interesting one should be careful judging others especially with the rate of donor sperm & IVF births these days who knows what problems we are creating for the future generations. There are many men who want their details kept private, so down the track brothers & sisters may be caugh in this web.

  110. Renton on February 1st, 2013
  111. You sick fucks! You deserve to be shot between tha eyes! That’s fuckin nasty fuckin your dad or fuckin your little gurl! It does not matter how long y’all been apart you are still her father n you are still his daughter! Fuckin sick incest fucks!

  112. Countrybitch on February 1st, 2013
  113. Incest = incest
    She sought to find her father KNOWING he is her father. Both are to blame and should be embarrassed as fuck

  114. Maria Mendoza on February 3rd, 2013
  115. Had she not gotten pregnant then I really wouldn’t have cared because no one would’ve been harmed.

    P.S Fuck the bible, and fuck god.Religion has caused harm to way too many people.

  116. whatever on February 16th, 2013
  117. In no way is this okay. I will assume the 5% who voted it as okay are all in incentuous relationships as well. If it’s no one’s business it shouldn’t be all over the media for people to know about. It’s wrong and disgusting.

  118. Alexis Anon on February 16th, 2013
  119. Wow. This is disgusting. Incest is incest and should not be tolerated. They aren’t the ones who are going to pay. It will be their child who gets all the medical issues.

    FYI, way back in the Bible times the gene pool would have been considerably larger and inbreeding was probably much less likely to cause issues. However, it’s only natural over time for the human race to lose considerable amounts of everything in the gene pool and to pick up new mutations along the way. Even if inbreeding was once safe, it is now scientifically proven that it is dangerous.

  126. Mac on March 5th, 2013
  127. call it what you like… baby’s mum is also gonna be its sister, and daddy is also going to be grandpa… try explaining that to a child over dinner…

  128. brooke on March 13th, 2013
  129. so….meaning to say… the child’s dad happens to be his grandpa too. lol. this is a joke. disgusting! thank god her mother ie that man’s wife is dead. fucktards. hopefully the child turns out to be mentally and physically fit.

  130. Punya on April 17th, 2013
  131. I suggest everyone shut the fuck up. you have no room to talk. you humans thinks its ok to discriminate others. before you judge others look at yourself in the mirror. Same sex marriage isnt wrong, being together out of love is not wrong either. they didnt know who they were to each other till after she found out she was pregnant. so why you fucking fucked up idiotic humans back the fuck off before i do give you all something to bitch about. I dont give a shit if its disgusting or not you humans who slander others are disgusting and shouldnt even be called humans. those who think they know everything should shut the fuck up. You humans call yourself humans when in reality youre nothing but lower life forms. nothing but scums who has nothing to do in their life but put others down. You lower life scums disgust me. i support those two and the same sex marriage. It does not say in the bible you cannot be with the one you love. It doesnt matter what the law or bible says. God says to Love one another but what you fucktards are doing is being hypocrites and Liars. So Fuck off and this is coming from a pregnant mother to be. If you all have nothing nice to say keep your trap shut!

  132. Serenity Mizuhana on July 10th, 2013
  133. You humans do sperm donors so dont say shit. you have no room to talk.

  134. Serenity Mizuhana on July 10th, 2013
  135. We are humans with brains. We are not animals. Even though they had feelings like that, they should’ve stopped themselves from doing the wrongs instead of labeling it as GSA.

    It’s the same as, if a person wants an animal sexually (which is very wrong and disgusting), would he just say it’s just a disorder and ok to do it? Or the serial killers that murder many people, would it be ok because they suffered when they were kids? — The answer is NO, it’s not ok! No matter what, there is still right and wrong in this world!

  136. Crystal on July 27th, 2013
  137. And for those who didn’t read well, the article said she was searching for her father, after their meeting, they had sexual feelings for each other. So before they had that disgusting intimate relationship, they already knew they are father and daughter!

  138. Crystal on July 27th, 2013
  139. this is disgusting she went to meet her DAD why would any other feelings come in to it she is just as bad and they are off their rockers to bring a poor baby in to this perversion he needs castrating and i have 2 little girls and i wonder what sort of messed up sick world i am bringing them up in. never heard such nonsense what kind of syndrome could make that normal just an excuse for it to all be ok what we supposed to do feel sorry for them because its not their fault its an illness? they want burning….

  140. mel on August 6th, 2013
  141. I think people did not understood where the fatherhood begins, the owner of this world [Allah] has set rules for being a father.

    If you did not marry a women with the right marriage that Allah regulated, then you are not legally the father of all the children, because they are simply ‘bastards’.

    According to that you are free to marry to any daughter as long as you are not legally her father.

    If you really want to live in a beautiful life then obey the almighty Allah, you will never see such strange things in your entire live.

    O’ Allah guide all of us to the right path.

  142. Guide on August 27th, 2013
  143. @Guide on….This world is definitely coming to an end…There are 15 signs in Islam and strange things like these are mentioned….I agree with what you’ve written~

  144. one-of-a-kind on August 27th, 2013
  145. If your ok with homosexuality you can not be against this because that would make you a hypocrite. I don’t agree with this and I think it’s wrong and I also think that homosexuality is wrong to, as a Christian I think that all unnatural and sexually perverted behaviour is immoral and wrong but as long as it’s between consenting adults and it’s done in private I don’t care. What consenting adults do with each other in private is their business.

  150. sakhi on April 21st, 2014
  151. Are they really considering having a child together?? You can call it genetic attraction or whatever the f***,just to give it a scientific explanation, however I call it freaky! I see where she gets that freaky gene. I’m sure her mother is rolling over in her grave. I think they are disgusting and its sad that they are so selfish that they would sacrifice morals, values, family, the law, and even this innocent child all for their sexual desires.
