“This was three kids in that I found out we were related. I did my DNA test I think in 2016 and yeah it was devastating because I was like ‘babe we’re related are we even supposed to be together? This is weird. I wouldn’t change it for the world… Husband and wife for life! There is a reason why good couples look alike. I am just over here raising awareness.” She said.

They won’t back down

When Celina and her husband found out they were cousins, there was a strong outcry from the public, but they said they would not back down. 

The couple claimed they are steadfast despite numerous people telling them the marriage should end. 

They invested in their marriage for 17 years, therefore Celina insisted that it will continue.

She said: “Let me divorce him because we didn’t know. Let me just tell our kids their parents are not together anymore because of other people’s opinions. No thank you we will just be staying cousins, spouses and lovers forever. Now go throw up in your mouth some more.”
