An Australian woman who had a child with her father pleaded for acceptance of their illicit love as the couple appeared on national television with their baby girl after being convicted of incest.
Jenny Deaves was 31 when she was reunited with her father John Deaves, who separated from her mother three decades before. Shortly afterwards, she had considered embarking on a sexual relationship with him, she told the Nine Network.
“John and I are in this relationship as consenting adults,” she told the “” programme on Sunday night.
“We are just asking for a little bit of respect and understanding.”
The couple’s nine-month-old daughter, Celeste, to whom John Deaves is both father and grandfather, was also shown on the programme and appeared to be in sound health.
She is a third child, but also a half-sister, for Jenny Deaves, now 39, who has two other children from another relationship.
Jenny Deaves said not long after meeting her father, she began to see him as a man first and a father second.
“I was looking at him, sort of going, oh, he’s not too bad,” she said.
“Like you might look at a man across the bar at a nightclub.”
John Deaves, who is 61, said he knew it was illegal to have sex with his child but emotions soon overcame him.
“Emotions take over, as people no doubt realise, there are times during your life where emotions do rule the heart, it rules the head,” he said.
“I knew it was illegal, of course I knew it was illegal but you know, so what.”… (Source)
