A grandmother has shocked her friends and family after revealing she is having a baby with her own grandson.
Pearl Carter, 72, says she has never been happier after beginning an incestuous relationship with her 26-year-old grandchild Phil Bailey.
The pensioner, from Indiana, US, is using her pension to pay a surrogate mother so they can have a child, reports New Zealand’s New Idea magazine.
She said: “I’m not interested in anyone else’s opinion. I am in love with Phil and he’s in love with me.
“Soon I’ll be holding my son or daughter in my arms and Phil will be the proud dad.”
Her lover is the son of Pearl’s daughter Lynette Bailey – who she put up for adoption when she was 18-years-old.
When his mother passed away, Phil tracked down his long lost grandmother and they quickly fell in love.
Pearl told New Idea magazine: “From the first moment that I saw him, I knew we would never have a grandmother-grandson relationship.
