A Portuguese motorcycle racer has revealed that he married his stepsister and they are expecting their first baby together.
MotoGP rider Miguel Oliveira, 26, tied the knot with his long-term partner Andreia Pimenta, 25, after previously keeping their relationship secret for 11 years.
The happy couple, who have known each other since the age of 13, met as Miguel’s father married Andreia’s mother when they were in their teens.
However, the step-siblings’ friendship blossomed into something more as the two got older and they had a secret relationship for 11 years before going public in 2019.
