Father and daughter expect child together

A woman who tracked down her long-lost father in the US is now pregnant with his child.

Garry Ryan, 46, was tracked down by his daughter Penny Lawrence, 28, last year. He had left Ms Lawrence’s mother when she was pregnant, so father and daughter had never met.

Following the death of her mother and the grandparents who raised her, Ms Lawrence, from Los Angeles, became obsessed with finding her father, and tracked him down to Houston, Texas.

Upon meeting, they felt an instant physical attraction, which resulted in a sexual relationship. Ms Lawrence is now pregnant with her father’s child.

    My take is they should do a paternity test to confirm whether or not they are related.

  2. October 21, 2013

    First, in the sight of God they committed the sin the Bible calls fornication which includes any type of illicit sexual intercourse.

    Second, they committed incest which is a type of fornication. This is sex between two people who are closely related. It is one of the oldest and most universal of all the taboos.

    Both these people should be charged with incest since they are both of age. (I am assuming they live in a country where is such a charge whatever it may be called.) They should face justice in the court.

    However, my concern is for the baby. Too close a blood relationship between the parents can result in a serious abnormality. Tests should be done and the pregnancy should be monitored. Every consideration and care should be given to the child both before and after birth.

    Serious thought should be given as to whether the child should be left with the mother or taken into custody.

    This tragedy is a sad commentary on the times we live in. The increase of porn, sex between unmarried people, divorce, and perverted lifestyles is all leading up to the complete collapse of the morality that is the foundation of civilized society.

    We need a return to Biblical Judeo-Christian morals and family values that will be mandated by legislation, enforced by law, taught in the homes and schools, and preached in the pulpits by pastors who understand that the ministry is a high calling not just a career.

    was there any DNA done to prove that this woman is his daughter? maybe it’s not biological, we don’t know all the facts so stop wishing this couple bad, because it might just turn around and come right back to you.

    You know what……I think that, it’s two people wanting to be in the sportlight, or looking for some attention. Or maybe they know we as human being like RORO tomuch… so they put this to test us……

    Or maybe….. they want to be on TMZ or entertainment tonight….or hoping to walk the red carpet somehow…
    that must be a big joke…..and if it’s not, I think it’s time for me to go get my LAW degree…….and those barboons will see if they would ever live to tell this story…

    This is why men should not just put and leave, they need to stay to see the results of putting. And women need to be care who put it in. This could be avoided. But all in all this guy is a big, the daughter even worst.

    OK. when i started reading i was like “oh shait, poor girl” BECAUSE i thought that she was already in the relationship, got pregnant, went in search of her father and found out it was her older boyfriend. But she knew it was her father man and she still went there…pity just turned to disgust…

    FROM ANOTHER ANGLE: though i agree that this is just unbecoming, and nasty from every sense of the thought right up to the action, i could clearly understand their position. i mean, they never knew each other before, and the immediately got attracted to each other, they allow their feelings to get the better of them. Its natural, act of nature…but to have gotton her pregnant…awa..he sealed the “insanity” right there…its so confusing isnt it?

    • JAILBIRD
      March 25, 2011

      There is no other angle to look at this disgusting thing! Are you even thinking about the unborn child? Are you thinking about the stigma that child has to go through life with? And maybe you should reread the article…they meet late in life but they did meet as father and daughter…we love out parents but we do not go to bed with them….If they feel this disgusting sexual attraction to each other why didnt the leave or seek some kind of councling? This two are disgusting and i hope they are prosecuted.No matter how you look at it, it is WRONG…..

      It seems that some only see bad when it happens somewhere else.

      Incest is a filthy immoral act no matter where it happens. Yes it happens in Dominica. Where I live it is said that one young woman has had a child with her father. Yet people have accepted it like its normal. Some can hide the fact because they have not produced a child together, but they will still continue.
