Grandmother Is Having A Baby - With Her Own Grandson

A 72-year-old woman has admitted she is having a baby with her 26-year-old grandson.

Pearl Carter and Phil Bailey have been splashed all over the papers after admitting they are lovers.

They have reportedly paid £20,000 to a surrogate mother to carry Phil's child.

Apparently it's a case of Genetic Sexual Attraction, which is recognised as something which can happen when close relatives meet as adults.

It's still Wrong though, isn't it?

The couple, from Indiana, USA, face prison but apparently don't care.

Pearl reportedly gave her daughter Lynette - Phil's mum - away as a baby. The couple met when Phil grew up and tracked Pearl down after his mother died.

Pearl is reported as saying: "I'm not interested in anyone else's opinion. We love each other and soon I'll be holding my son or daughter and Phil will be the proud dad."

Phil said: "I love Pearl with all my heart. I've always been attracted to older women and I think Pearl is gorgeous. Now I'm going to be a dad and I can't wait.

"We get laughed at and bullied when we kiss in public but we don't care."

I'll spare you the more gruesome details of their relationship, which they seem to be happy to share with the world.

The couple say they don't care about being laughed at and bullied, but perhaps their child will.

Apparently they used Pearl's retirement money to find a surrogate mum and buy a donor egg, which has been fertilised with Phil's sperm. Another woman, Roxanne Campbell, 30, is reportedly now carrying their child.

Pearl says: "I make no apologies and I believe God's given me a second chance."

Surely this shouldn't be allowed... what do you think?
