(Newser) – An Australian father and daughter, reunited after 30 years, have had a daughter together, reports the Sydney Morning Herald. "I knew it was illegal, of course I knew it was illegal, but you know, so what," said the baby daddy/granddaddy. He called the sexual relationship "absolutely fantastic." The two were charged with incest and banned from having sex, and are being monitored by police.

The couple, whose first child died days after birth, started living together when the daughter’s marriage fell apart; she soon started looking at her father "like you might look at a man across the bar at a nightclub." One psychologist said such cases of "genetic sexual attraction" are more prevalent than people think.
