A MOTHER has said she is in love with her son after they were reunited 30 years after she gave him up for adoption.
Kim West, 51, and her son Ben Ford, 32, have been in a relationship for two years and are planning to get married and try for a baby together.
The couple told the New Day their sex life is "incredible and mind-blowing".
They insist their relationship is not incest, instead claiming it is "Genetic Sexual Attraction" - a term used to describe separated relatives who feel sexual attraction for each other after meeting as adults.
The pair were reunited after Ben, who was living with his wife in the US, sent a letter to his mother in England in 2013.
They began by exchanging phone calls before agreeing to meet up.
Ms West said it was like they had "known each other for years". She started to realise she was attracted to her son and said she had "sexy dreams" about him.
Feeling confused about her attraction, she was relieved after looking it up on the internet and finding an article on Genetic Sexual Attraction. Mr Ford told her he felt relieved and said he had stopped having feelings for his wife.
When the pair met at a hotel, they shared a bottle of champagne and had their first kiss.
After Mr Ford told his wife he was leaving her for his mother, the couple flew to Michigan where they had help from another GSA couple to set up a new life.
Incest is illegal in Michigan and carries a sentence up to life imprisonment, but it is unclear whether the police will take action in this case.
Ms West told the New Day: "This is not incest, it is GSA. We are like peas in a pod and meant to be together.
"I know people will say we're disgusting, that we should be able to control our feelings, but when you're hit by a love so consuming you are willing to give up everything for it, you have to fight for it.
"It's a once in a lifetime chance and something Ben and I are not willing to walk away from."
