Kim West, 51, and her son Ben Ford, 32, who live in Michigan, USA, said yesterday that they plan to marry and have a baby together. But the pair are now in hiding after the US authorities became aware of their relationship, reported The Mirror, UK.

Incest is illegal in the couple's home state of Michigan and judges in the state can dish out life sentences to those found guilty of the offence.

It is however unclear if a case against them would be pursued and the couple say they would move if that were to be the case.

Kim West had given up her son, Ben Ford for adoption, only for the pair were reunited in January 2014. Upon the reconnection, they discovered that they were attracted to each other and have been in a relationship since then, enjoying 'incredible and mind-blowing' sex.

Two years into the relationship, the pair living in Michigan have now gone public with their incestuous relationship, which they describe as 'Genetic Sexual Attraction'.

The couple intend to marry and are even trying to have a baby together.

West, who works as an interior designer, told Alley Einstein of New Day: "This is not incest, it is GSA. We are like peas in a pod and are meant to be together."

Genetic sexual attraction is a seldom-talked about phenomenon that occurs between adoptees and their long-lost parents.

It describes feelings of intense intimacy between two relatives who have been separated during the critical years of development and bonding, and then meet for the first time as adults.

It was first identified by Barbara Gonyo in the eighties, after she a wrote book called "I'm His Mother, But He's Not My Son", which recounted her personal story of reuniting with the son she placed for adoption at 16.
