    I think this is definitely a hoax.

    Who cares? If it makes them happy, good for them.

    Except for them publicizing the whole thing, which is ridiculous.

    Unfortunately this sort of thing is not unheard off. I heard of a half brother and sister who fell in love and married. The ancient Egyptian royals used to marry only within their own immediate family. The results were not good for the offspring.

    That's one way to look at it and true in a way - children are certainly born into far less loving homes.

    Incest issue aside, I find it really icky that such a young man is attracted to older women. Now, there are plenty of old men and young woman out there, but I think that's icky too. If Donald Trump can wed and bed a 25 year old, then why can't an old woman wed and bed a young man? (Though yeah, I am completely repelled by the idea of a romance with my brother or my father).

    Also, she's 72. I am not sure if it is fair for a woman that age to have a baby. She'll likely die before the child reaches 16 or be way too old to enjoy the child.

    And I feel the same way about a man of 72 having a baby.

    Well, really, they share how much DNA? 1/4? And I didn't read in any detail but is the surrogate also providing the egg? That means the child is in the clear from any negative biological consequences (which in fact are unlikely--no, it's not good to do parent/child or sibling/sibling crosses as a habit but cousin crosses overall are harmless, UNLESS the family is already carrying a negative recessive and they gamble and lose. The acceptable degree of cousin marriages varies wildly by culture, in some cases even being based on whether or not the cousin is a cross-cousin or not, ie whether they're the offspring of a father's brother or a mother's sister, in which case it's not permitted, but if it's a father's sister or a mother's brother it's acceptable.) Grandmother/grandson is fairly removed, genetically speaking. From a biological standpoint, whatever.

    From a SOCIOLOGICAL standpoint, ew ew ew. Especially the age gap.

    This is sick on so many levels it's just mind-boggling. Even if they weren't related at all it would be extremely strange...with the connection it's just ewwww squared.
