Brazilian woman finds out she's married to her brother

COLUMBA (WPMI/WACH) -- Adriana and and her partner Leandro discovered that they are brother and sister after seven years.

They also have a six-year-old daughter. The Brazilian couple successfully located their birth mothers, both named Maria, as they were each abandoned as babies.

It was only this week that they realized they were looking for the same woman. While Leandro stayed in the town where he was born, near Sao Paulo, Adriana moved away, was married for 15 years and had three children.

However, her marriage broke down 10 years ago and she moved back home, where she met Leandro. Still desperate to locate her birth mother, Adriana contacted local radio station Radio Globo to see if they could help and, after researchers traced her mum, the two were reunited live on air last week.

Things took a shocking turn when Maria admitted she also had a son sheâ??d never known, called Leandro. As the penny drops, Adrian can be heard on the recording sobbing uncontrollably: â??I donâ??t believe that youâ??re telling me this. Leandro is my husband.â??

Nevertheless, the couple â?? who live as husband and wife but never legally married â?? have vowed to stay together. Adriana told

Radio Globo:

â??Only death is going to separate us. All this happened because God wanted it to happen. â??Of course it would have been different if we had known all this before, but we didnâ??t and we fell in love.â?? They say they donâ??t blame their mother for leaving them and have plans to meet up with her again soon.
