In a bizarre twist of fate, a married couple from Utah has taken the internet by storm with a shocking revelation that has left millions of viewers in disbelief. Tylee and Nick Waters, who have been married for three years, recently dropped a bombshell on TikTok, claiming that they are actually cousins. And to the amazement of many, they have no intentions of ending their marriage, the Daily Mail reported.
The revelation came to light in a viral TikTok video that has garnered over 5.7 million views, leaving viewers both perplexed and intrigued. As the video begins, Nick lovingly wraps his arm around Tylee, his supposed cousin-wife, and they share a kiss set to the iconic Lynyrd Skynyrd tune, “Sweet Home Alabama.”
The comment section of the video quickly filled with viewers demanding a follow-up video to explain the nature of their familial relationship. Questions like “What in Alabama is going on?” and “How close of cousins are they?” flooded the comments, revealing the collective perplexity of the audience.
Even more astonishing were the stories shared by other viewers who claimed similar experiences. One user revealed, “Same thing happened to us, married for 3 years with a kid, and then found out we’re 5th cousins once removed.” Another commented, “My hubby and I have been married for 33 years, and we recently found out that we are distant cousins.”
The Waters couple, in a subsequent “silly facts” video, disclosed that they share the same birthday, adding to the intrigue. However, they did not explain the details of their familial connection, leaving viewers in suspense.
While many were eager for more information, some expressed their concerns about the situation. One commenter voiced their disapproval, stating, “That’s disgusting… we are not going to take incest relationships and try and make them normal.. both of you need therapy.”
Interestingly, this isn’t the only case of such a revelation in Utah. Another couple discovered they were third cousins after getting married, thanks to their grandparents sharing the same first and last names. This unexpected twist in their family history unfolded as they were exploring baby name ideas.
The TikTok revelation of Tylee and Nick Waters has sparked a viral frenzy, raising questions about the boundaries of love and relationships. While the couple has chosen to embrace their unusual situation, it has undoubtedly left many scratching their heads in perplexity.
