The couple have been told they look alike before, and now it’s pretty clear why in a viral TikTok.
A married couple from Utah has claimed they are actually cousins and have no intention of ending their marriage, according to the Daily Mail.
Tylee and Nick Waters said they had been married for three years, but were unaware they belonged to the same family tree.
“I wish I was joking,” captioned the video, which has been viewed more than 5.7 million times.
The video begins with Nick wrapping an arm around his supposed cousin-wife Tylee, as they share a kiss to Lynyrd Skynyrd’s signature song “Sweet Home Alabama.”
Viewers flooded the comments section and demanded a follow-up video of the couple explaining their relationship.
“What’s going on in Alabama?” joked one viewer.
“Okay, but now we have to hear story time 👏!” pleaded another commenter.
“But how close are the cousins? First, second, tenth? Lol,” another curious person asked.
Even weirder was the amount of similar “kissing cousins” stories people shared in the comments section.
“The same thing happened to us 😂, we have been married for 3 years with a child and then found out that we were fifth cousins once estranged,” one user shockingly revealed.
“My husband and I have been married for 33 years and recently found out we are distant cousins,” one woman commented.
The Utah couple revealed in a ‘silly facts’ video that they shared the same birthday and also admitted they had been told they looked alike.
However, the pair never explained how they were related, nor did they explain how they found out.
“I just need to know if you’re kidding or not.” I need the algorithm to bring me back to story time,” one commenter replied in the latest follow-up video.
“This is disgusting…we’re not going to take incest relationships and try to make them normal…you both need therapy,” an angry person said.
Another Utah couple experienced a similar outcome, documenting that they found out they were third cousins after getting married.
Marcella Hill discovered this shocking development when she and her husband searched their family trees for baby name ideas, she revealed on TikTok.
That’s when Hill and her husband realized their grandparents had the same first and last name.
“So he calls his grandmother and I call my grandfather and we ask them if they know each other… Indeed – ‘Of course!’ Hill recalled the responses of loved ones.
