It sounds like something that came straight from a soap opera.

A Brazilian woman searching for her mother discovered she is actually married to her own brother.

The couple learned the truth on a radio show that brings long lost relatives back together called “The Time Is Now.”

According to the Daily Mail, 39-year-old Adriana and 37-year-old Leandro met seven years ago and have a 6-year-old daughter together.

Adriana and Leandro were both given up as babies.  They have both been searching for their birth mother for their whole lives.

Adriana went on “The Time is Now” expecting to meet her birth mother, Maria.  During the show she learned that her birth mother gave up a baby with the same first name as her husband.

Translation of part of the Radio Globo interview:

Mother, you had other children besides me?” He said.
Yes,  had the Leandro,’ but it was with another man, was not his father,” Maria said.
Upon hearing the story of her mother, Adriana got desperate and started to cry compulsively.
I do not believe you’re telling me this. Leandro is my husband,” she said.

She also told Radio Globo, “Only death is going to separate us. All this happened because God wanted it to happen. Of course it would have been different if we had known all this before, but we didn’t and we fell in love.”

Adriana says she suspected something after she saw their mothers had the same name on one of her husband’s two birth certificates.

She says she hoped it was just a coincidence and thought the reunion would put her fears to rest.
