Pearl Carter, 72, is in love and having a baby—with her 26-year-old grandson. Oh, but it’s not gross, because Pearl gave Phil’s mom up for adoption when she was a baby, so grandma and grandson didn’t meet until 2006! Pearl was freaked out when she found herself thinking “what a handsome and sexy man he was,” but then she read about Genetic Sexual Attraction and realized her feelings “weren’t wrong,” she tells New Idea.

Phil agrees: “I could be with Pearl and it was OK because she'd never raised me or been in my life,” he says. TMI alert: They have sex “three times a week”—but Pearl is too old to conceive, so they found an open-minded surrogate and spent $54,000 of Pearl’s retirement money to inseminate her with a donor egg and Phil’s sperm. As he says, “You can't help who you fall for.”
