Garry Ryan, 46, was tracked down by his daughter Penny Lawrence, 28, last year. She never met him because he left her mother when she was pregnant. Lawrence is now pregnant with his child and claims to be in love with her father.
Following the death of her mother and the grandparents who raised her, Ms Lawrence, became obsessed with finding her father, and tracked him down in Houston, Texas.
When they met they felt an instant physical attraction, which resulted in a sexual relationship. Penny is now pregnant with her father’s child.
They say they’re in love and deny that it’s incest. Instead they say they are victims of something called Genetic Sexual Attraction, a term coined in the 1980s to describe overwhelming feelings between blood relatives who first meet as adults. Lawrence told The Sun:
We are not committing incest, but are victims of GSA. We’ve never experienced a father-daughter relationship, so we’re just like any other strangers who meet in adulthood.
The couple said that if the three month scan of their baby shows it does not have birth defects, they plan to keep the child and raise it together.
Ryan said that he realizes that their relationship is illegal and they are afraid that they will be ordered apart by the courts. But he 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 we are doing anything wrong.
