Sup Travellers?! Two strangers from Brazil met each other a couple years ago while searching for their lost long mother. They found that they had a lot in common especially since their "mothers" had the exact same name, Maria. At the time, they had absolutely no idea that they were searching for the same person and that they were siblings so they decided to get married

Adriana, 39, and her husband Leandro, 37, were both abandoned at birth by their mother and left to go their separate ways. Adriana, a cosmetics saleswoman, hadn't seen her mother since she was just one, when she left home leaving her to be raised by the girl's father. Meanwhile, truck driver Leandro found out aged eight that his own mother had also abandoned him, and that the woman he knew as his mum was actually his step-mother.

According to Daily Mail, they both lived in different towns with Leandro staying in the state of Sao Paulo, southeast Brazil where he was born. Adriana moved away and was married for 15 years and had three children. 

When her marriage broke up she moved back into her home state of Sao Paulo where she met Leandro, her long-lost brother. They both fell in love and moved in together. They have been together for seven years and have a six-year-old daughter.

It was only when Adriana decided to contact a radio station last month in their town famous for reuniting families did she realize that Leandro was her brother.

At the end of the interview on Radio Globo's 'The Time Is Now' programme, which specializes in finding lost relatives, the mother revealed she also had a son who didn't know her, Leandro.

As it becomes clear that it is the same Leandro that she was married to, Adriana is heard weeping uncontrollably.

"I don't believe that you're telling me this. Leandro is my husband," she sobs. At the end of the interview she says: "Now I'm scared to go home and find out that Leandro doesn't want me any more. I love him so much."

Adriana and Leandro - who never married legally - yesterday told Radio Globo that they would stay together, despite the bombshell that they are actually brother and sister.

Adriana said: "Only death is going to separate us. All this happened because God wanted it to happen. Of course it would have been different if we had known all this before, but we didn't and we fell in love. We thought it was funny that both our mothers had the same name, but it is a common name so we just thought it was a coincidence. At first we were really knocked by it all. But we had a family meeting and told everyone that we are going to stay husband and wife, whatever anyone might think. We have so many plans together, nothing's going to break us up, nothing."

The couple said they don't blame their mother for leaving them. They have spoken with her a number of times since and plan to meet up soon. 

Incest is incest no matter if you know or not but I don't think that we can blame Adriana and Leandro. To them, they were both complete strangers to each other and it is sometimes normal for two strangers to eventually fall in love. It's not their fault. 

Luckily enough, their child wasn't born with any severe birth defects. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed
