Incest Is Icky, Even If The Resulting Baby Is Adorable

On a list of things that gross us the eff out, incest falls somewhere between scalping and the word “cutlet”. That why the story of an Australian father and daughter who had two kids together (the first died, the second is healthy) is making us heave up our Au Bon Pain. But John and Jenny Deaves says they’re just a normal, happy family and want to be left alone! They claim there was a 30-year separation period which explains why their attraction to one another is no different than any other couple (choke, gag) — “I was looking at him, sort of going, oh, he’s not too bad,” Jenny said. “Like you might look at a man across the bar at a nightclub.” Since then, the pair had a child that died of congenital heart disease and now have a healthy nine-month old baby girl. They were found guilty of a single count of incest last month and as part of the sentence, John was told he had to stay away from Jenny and their child. He attempted suicide twice, so the judge instead placed them on a three-year, $500 good behavior bond, with the condition they don’t have a sexual relationship. The two are supposedly being “monitored” by authorities. [NineMSN]
