VIDEO: Gay couple discover they’re actually half brothers
A gay couple were left devastated after DNA tests proved that they were half-brothers.
Paul and Lee appeared on the Jeremy Kyle show so that they could find out once and for all if they were actually related.
The couple initially found each other online and said it was love at first sight when they first met each other in person.
But they began to suspect that they could be half-brothers after Lee took Paul to meet his parents.
Members of his family remarked that Paul looked a lot like his mum Ena’s ex-husband Ron, who Lee had no idea even existed.
It also turned out that Paul had the same surname as Ron while Ena later admitted to Lee that he did have a secret half-brother.
Paul was taken into care when he was 18-months-old and adopted when he was three.
Jeremy Kyle asked Lee:
“You are having a physical sexual relationship with a man that you love and want to marry and at some point somebody might tell you that he could be your half-brother – what does that do to you?”
“It makes me sick. It makes me basically horrible. I can’t describe it,” Lee said
“What’s the worst case scenario if it turns out you are brothers?” asked Kyle.
“I’m hoping that it’s not true because I love you so much it’s unreal, “replied Paul.
Jeremy read out a statement from Ron, in which he revealed that he had four kids, including a son called Paul, who was taken into care.
The DNA test where then revealed, proving that the couple were half-brothers.
The news caused Paul to run off crying.
Lee said: ‘I’ve gained a half-brother. I told him I’ll be there for him.’
Paul added: ‘I just basically want to get to know you more as a brother.’
The two men were then reunited with Ron and Ena.
