I'm Pregnant With My Dad's Baby And We Are So In Love: Your Thoughts?
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
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."
